Holiday Open House & December Meetup

We would like to thank everyone that took time out of their Wednesday afternoon to stop by our office for our Holiday Open House! We so enjoyed seeing you all, and very much appreciate your attendance during the busy holiday season. We hope that you had a fun, festive time at AppWorks.

We also hosted a FileMaker Meetup on Wednesday night, and were thrilled to see new faces join the group.
