Monthly FileMaker Meetup – July 2018

Tags : 

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

Tags : 

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.

FileMaker Portland – Integrating Web Services

Tags : 

Thank you to everyone who attended the January FileMaker Portland meetup. The evening was packed with presentations about how people are leveraging FileMaker 16’s JSON support to connect to web services.

Some of the integrations we discussed were:

  • Magento – This popular e-commerce platform has REST and SOAP APIs. Use them to connect data about products, customers, and orders to FileMaker.
  • SmartyStreets – Supercharge your address entry fields with five different APIs.
  • Google Charts – A Javascript library for creating interactive HTML5/SVG charts.
  • FileMaker – Why not the other way around? Make POST, GET, PUT, and DELETE calls to FileMaker using the Data API.

Have something you’d like to share or discuss with other FileMaker developers? Consider attending the next meetup.
