This post inspired by and a large nod to [Robert Houston] whose nickname in our ecosystem is The Wolf. Most likely the best technical person on our platform. The Wolf recently wrote a piece I saw comparing Bindings 1.0 and Bindings 2.0 - this post is a view of this for the community.

In the end.. I would usually just build everything in SAQL for consistency sake.. so I got a really good work flow happening with just doing SAQL straightway.. anyway…. you may no longer need to do this.. as autoFilter maybe useful in a number of scenarios that were before destined to be time spent doing selection bindings.
