Our FileMaker monthly Meetup group met this last Wednesday in a new space! 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 many thanks goes out to Ken Skeen and the fine folks at Hanna Andersson that graciously offered their space for our meeting, to Gerald Chang of Eight2 for providing drinks and Chris Irvine of ThreeProng.com for bringing the pizza and co-hosting the meeting!

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.
