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!
