We love FileMaker DevCon. We get to hang with our peeps, and talk about our favorite thing, the awesome power of the FileMaker Platform. That’s why we are very excited to announce that Geist Interactive is a Diamond Sponsor of the 2018 FileMaker DevCon in Dallas, Tx Aug 6 – 9, 2018. Our team will be there in force, delivering presentations, hanging out in our booth, or leveling up our skills. We hope to see you there.
Training and Sessions
This year three of the team members will be presenting in sessions throughout the week. Here is a list of the topics we bring to DevCon. And be sure to check out the full schedule.
Modular FileMaker 2.0
Modular FileMaker is a guideline for writing re-usable code that can be shared between developers or different projects. The web-site was launched more than 4 years ago, and has proved to be very popular. There are over 60 modules published on the site to date. Times have changed. JSON and Card Windows add some of the much needed native features we lacked back in 2013. It’s time for an update. We’ll look at the new updated guidelines and examine several sample modules. We’ll also introduce everyone to how they can contribute to this important free community resource.
Microsoft Office Addons Integration
Testable FileMaker Custom Apps
With the release of FileMaker 16 and native JSON functions, it’s easier than ever to create testable FileMaker apps. We will walk through a simple example of what testing is, and how it can improve your solutions. Most developers have had situations where they need to alter some existing logic, and are concerned that they might alter something with unforeseen consequences. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could ensure that your changes didn’t break existing code? Welcome to FileMaker Testing.
This session is a half-day training session that is an additional cost.
Geist Interactive Booth
In the exhibit hall, we will have a large booth where team members will gladly say hi, offer advice, and talk about our services and products. The larger-than-life Dave Ramsey, author of FMPerception and DamageDetectoR will give entertaining and informative impromptu talks about the FileMaker platform and FMPerception.
FileMaker DevCon Out and About
The entire team will be there for the entire week, so find one of us and say hi. We’ll have the “Geist Interactive” swag, so we will be easy to identify. We want to meet everyone and talk FileMaker! Come to our booth or find us around the exhibit hall or in the sessions or by the pool, and we’ll happily chat about the platform we love.
