As we look forward to an amazing 2013 here at Caspio, I wanted to take a look back and re-visit some of the more popular posts and topics that were popular over the past year. The following posts saw constant traffic even months after their initial posting on the blog.

I initially started looking at the most popular blog topics from Jan 1 – Dec 28 (when i first started researching the page view totals) – and realized that some of the most viewed, shared, and commented upon topics were actually written in late 2011. So, while this is a “best of” 2012 post, some of the content is admittedly from 2011. Regardless, all of these posts are still highly relevant to anyone looking to migrate from Excel, build an online database, or optimize an existing Caspio app.
