Managing Director, Tim Guest, would like to share the company’s real-world experiences, the comparisons we’ve made with web application development methods and technologies, and how we’re learning to overcome internal resistance to change, whilst targeting a new kind of customer.

Tools to support and complement FileMaker : Kevin Miller
-
LiveCode gives the user the ability to build or convert native solutions for your customers, being able to benefit from online/offline syncing while always keeping your data within FileMaker. We will use examples of large solutions of customers we work with, demonstrate how you can convert these solutions yourself, and also show people how they can build beautiful GUIs and front ends for their solutions, which can be deployed natively on any platform. Our talk would include live demonstrations of solutions being converted from one platform to another on a mobile device, as well as on a desktop. We will also demonstrate how to build apps in FileMaker, enhance them using LiveCode, and include useful components such as a PDF reader, photo capture, signature component and DropBox component.

We dig underneath to how the web viewer and scripts work. The session will include multiple options for filtering calendars for specific users, and publishing web-based calendars with WebDirect technologies and without (saving your the WebDirect license fees).
