By admin | February 25, 2010

 DEVCON 2010 Banner

The FileMaker Developer Conference will take place in San Diego, CA AUGUST 15-18, 2010. The FileMaker Developer Conference session schedule has been announced. Featured in 2010 will be a special track called “Preparing for Certification”.

This year FileMaker has developed a special track for developers working toward getting their FileMaker certification. It is also for those that want to focus and dig deep on a particular topic area in a smaller workshop setting. Based on the FileMaker Training Series (FTS) curriculum, the workshops will be delivered by the FileMaker authorized trainers. Each attendee will receive an electronic copy of the FTS materials, exercise files, and videos. (Additional fee required).

Cris Ippolite has been chosen by FileMaker to be the Chairman of this new track. Having architected the sessions and the organization of the speakers on this track, Cris will also be presenting 4 sessions:

Intro for Preparing for Certification

Session DescriptionThis session will be open to all DEVCON attendees and is designed to discuss the advantages for becoming a FileMaker certified developer.

This session will be ideal for anyone attending the Certification Preparation Track or for those interested in FileMaker Certification.

 

Preparing for Fields

The purpose of this session is for you to become comfortable creating fields and working with various field options. FileMaker Pro software supports several different data types, including text, number, date, time, and timestamp data. You can specify many options for automatically entering data into a field when it is created and/or modified. Setting up field validation and storage options provides an additional layer of control over the data that can be entered into your system. This session will focus on the way that different field types effect behaviors of the data stored within the fields. It will also serve as a review of your Field Option related to Validation, Auto Entry and Storage. Additional things you will learn: – Auto Enter Options – Global Storage – Containers – Preparing for Certification, whats next? Note: An additional fee is required for all FTS sessions.

Session DescriptionThe web technologies in FileMaker Server (and Pro) allow you to give your solutions a very broad reach. However, there are some tradeoffs to be aware of, which this session will discuss in detail. Web technologies allow users to interact with a FileMaker Pro solution using only a web browser. This session will discuss both Instant and Custom Web Publishing options available as well as considerations for both. There will also be discussion on setting up Web Publishing and the required Server components and additional software you will need to publish your FileMaker data to the web. Additional things you will learn: – XML Grammars – URL Syntax – PHP Site Assistant – Preparing for Certification, whats next? Note: An additional fee is required for all FTS sessions.
