FileMaker Portland would like to thank everyone who feasted at our Holiday Potluck. Plates were stacked high with homemade chili and cornbread, smoked salmon, and three types of sandwiches from Lardo. In between bites, revelers discussed all things FileMaker and toured our new office.
We’re excited to announce that our friends at LiveCode are organizing a campaign to make FileMaker solutions a native app on Android and iOS with LCFM Native.
Why are we excited about this? Originally, the LiveCode for FileMaker team was focusing on the Android connection, but after feedback from FileMaker groups like PDXFM, they decided to refocus on the native aspect. This move makes the system more robust and more beneficial for the FileMaker community and all mobile users.
How robust and beneficial?
According to the folks at LiveCode, with LCFM Native you’ll be able to:
Build beautiful, powerful, flexible native apps from your FileMaker layouts
Synchronize data perfectly as your app goes online and offline
Deploy to Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and Linux
Keep your data within FileMaker server or cloud
Access native objects and the operating system on each device
Pricing will start from $2
Full Money Back Guarantee
You can be a part of this becoming a reality by joining the pre-release program. Participation includes things like access to the beta program. That’s not all – LiveCode is also offering a choice between credit towards licensing payment for the final product or layout conversion done by the makers! Make a pledge before Nov. 24, 2017 to take advantage of these great offers.
We watched a great presentation by Ralf Rainer von Albedyhll about his new app titled ‘NextPitchLA’ (that is now up and ready for download from the Apple App Store) that was created entirely from FileMaker. He walked us through the app which helps users track developments in the new Regulation Crowdfunding world, an online marketplace where non-accredited investors (and just plain regular folk) get to invest in startups. We also gained insight into the process of appraisal and approval from the Apple App Store.
Our many thanks goes out to Ken Skeen and Hanna Anderson for graciously providing a space for the event and to Matt Navarre for hosting and providing Hot Lips pizza and beverages! Also, a special thanks to Joey Grimaldi of ODI Technologies for informing us of the existence of this: Sales Guy vs. Web Dude.

It was beautiful and the conference room was enormous – with a convenient wireless presentation system for laptops to present on a giant projection screen.

Our topic was: FileMaker Alternative Modal Dialogue Showcase. The idea was to show alternative methods for creating a modal window, without using a custom dialogue. It was great to delve into the different ways in which developers will tackle and solve the same problem in different ways.
