Description:

The recent release of FileMaker 19.5 introduced a new feature for those with FileMaker Server for Mac and Windows: OData (Open Data Protocol). Originally created by Microsoft, OData is an open protocol that allows for the creation and consumption of queryable and interoperable REST APIs in a simple and standard way.

In this episode, join Martha, Todd, and John as they explore OData and its many wide-ranging impacts: What benefits – efficiency gains, programming ergonomics, and scalability – does OData offer? How does OData compare to and improve upon other methodologies like the Data API, ODBC, and PSOS? Before diving into OData, what are some tradeoffs and cautions we should consider? And perhaps most centrally, how does OData open a door to new ways of modular and decoupled development in modern FileMaker?
