FileMaker Fun At DevCon

You can have a peak at this years #FileMakerdevcon.  This video footage is clear evidence that FileMaker developers are not all about writing scripts… In fact they can party pretty hard like the best of them!

FileMaker developers from all over the world turned up in Vegas to celebrate FileMaker’s 30 years and what a bash it was.  Not only was it incredibly interesting during the day, but the evening, well you only have to watch the video to witness the spectacle, it was so much fun.

This year was particularly special for us, as we were able to give a short presentation and really announce our FileMaker Plug-in Synergize.   We were able to demonstrate how it powers our ERP solution BusinessMan, by adding Web portals, calendars and charts easily, which is not native to FileMaker.

Check out the video and hopefully you will want to join us next year.



FileMaker Devcon

We are extremely excited to be in Vegas for #FileMakerDevcon this year.  Every year we attend only to find the atmosphere buzzing with fresh new development and technologies.

This year we have a stand, as it has been huge year for us especially with our innovative new Plug-in Synergize.  This way we can demonstrate our portfolio of products such as BusinessMan ERP, FM Scheduler and Synergize FM.

We will also be giving a presentation highlighting in a nutshell how Synergize gives you the ability to create flexible, dynamic interfaces such as dashboards, charts, calendars, email Apps, or any other type of graphical interface that uses web technologies, within your own FileMaker solution. Synergize contains its own PHP web server and uses raw SQL queries (including SELECT, UPDATE, INSERT and many more) to access your FileMaker database, returning large data queries in the blink of an eye.

If you are a FileMaker developer attending DevCon, this is one presentation you should be adding to your list.  This Plug-in could change the way you work and enhance your customers solution.
