Holiday Open House & December Meetup

Tags : 

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. We began the meeting with a FileMaker Q&A session, and addressed specific questions about charting as well as the encrypt and decrypt features in FileMaker 17. The Q&A sessions are becoming a vital staple of our Meetups, and we invite you to bring any questions you may have about developing with FileMaker.

This month’s Meetup started off with a demo from Matt Navarre of the newly released fmLog 2.0, a simple yet powerful FileMaker logging system developed by AppWorks. It is now available as a free download from our website.

The group then received a sneak peak of Chris Irvine’s DevCon 2018 presentation, Crypto Building Blocks for FileMaker Developers. Be sure to check out Chris’s session in Dallas the afternoon of August 8th. We look forward to seeing you there!

June 6th Portland FileMaker Meetup

It was good to see folks again this month, for another meeting at AppWorks command HQ.  (I missed last month’s meeting, unfortunately. I was looking forward to hearing the stories from Pause on Error.)  Here are some of the highlights.

There are big changes in the licensing of FM 17.  AppWorks’ own Shawn Prado has a thorough article covering that topic.  When you purchase a 5-user license you get 3 copies of Server now.  That raised an interesting question: Does this mean you can put one of those on FileMaker Cloud with the BYOL option, instead of buying one through the FM Cloud interface?  It used to be that when you used the BYOL option your server license would get converted to FMCloud and NOT be returnable to standalone server installations at a later date if you moved off the cloud.  This then led to some discussion on hosting and server environments.
