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

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. Attendees will receive one CD of the FTS materials for one or more sessions (includes modules, videos, exercise and demo files).
