FMMeetupPDX

The FileMaker Portland Meetup Group met on Wednesday, June 10, 2015. Our thanks goes out to our co-hosts, Gerald Chang, of Eight2 and Joey Grimaldi, of ODI Technologies, as well as all the fine folks who took the time to hang out with us and geek out.

One of the highlights of the meeting included a presentation by Chris Irvine. His presentation on glyphs and icons within FileMaker 14 were both fascinating and enlightening. He has a detailed post about it here. It’s well worth the read – we highly recommend it!

Our next FileMaker Portland Meetup is scheduled for Wednesday, July 8, 2015. We hope to see all of you there!

Geocoding and Mapping Module for FileMaker Pro
By David Weiner

In the past few months we’ve had several projects that needed some basic mapping functions for FileMaker Go on iPad, and for one reason or another, never really made anything that was easily replicable. Realizing that we were more than likely going to need to do this again, we thought it was time to find a module of some sort that we could easily plug in as needed. Our aim was to have a simple way to take a group of addresses and create a map using the Google API in FileMaker, and that was all. Nothing fancy – just simple, elegant, and (ideally) ready-to-go out of the box.

FMPUG March 2015

The FileMaker – Portland Meetup Group met on Wednesday, March 12, 2015 in a brand-new location: the newly-remodeled Stadium Fred Meyer on West Burnside in NW Portland.

The new location sports a terrific third-floor view of the West Hills and of the Providence Park (home of the Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns soccer teams). Parking is ample and there’s also great grocery shopping to be had pre- and post-meeting.
