Quickstart - Create a CRUD app

These steps introduce the basics of Squid, from creating an app to adding create, read, update, and delete data functionality. Once you create an application in the Squid Console, you have the ability to use the Squid Client SDK in your client application, modify and retrieve data, and connect various data sources.
