Intermediate Level Training Series

AppWorks is offering a 6-part training series for intermediate-level FileMaker users looking to improve upon their development skills. These classes will be offered in January and February of 2020, and can be taken as individual classes or as an entire series (for a discounted price).

Classes will be taught by Matt Navarre, an expert FileMaker developer with 30+ years of experience. Classes will feature many hands-on activities as well as working in small groups in order to improve concept retention. Students will work on a sample file, and are encouraged to bring their own project/solution if they have one.
