This week we’re in Italy… formazione, condivisione e ancora divertimento [training, sharing and more fun] …with the focus on innovations in Claris® FileMaker platform development. As realtori [conference speakers] at Rome FileMaker Week (October 6-8), Vince Menanno and Fabio Bosisio from Beezwax present three sessions:

  • Local FileMaker Development with Docker and Node-RED
  • The New Horizon: Native Script Transactions in FileMaker
  • Chatbot

Sviluppare in locale con Docker e Node-RED

[Local FileMaker Development with Docker and Node-RED]
Speaker: Fabio Bosisio, Senior Developer, Beezwax
Date: October 7, 2022
Time: 10:00 – 11:00, CEST

Summary: Have you ever been traveling for work or pleasure and have to work on a new feature or fix a bug for your FileMaker application that maybe uses the Data API but you realize you don’t have a good internet connection? In this presentation you will learn how to use Docker locally, to create a client / server environment for developing your FileMaker applications, and to use Node-RED to simulate HTTP calls to the FileMaker Data API.

Vince Menanno, Beezwax. The New Horizon | Native Script Transactions for Rome FileMaker Week presented by FM Guru

Nuovo orizzonte: Script transazionali nativi in FileMaker

[The New Horizon: Native Script Transactions in FileMaker]
Vincenzo Menanno, Chief Innovation Officer, Beezwax
Date: October 7, 2022
Time: 16:30 – 17:30, CEST

Summary: With Claris FileMaker we look forward to native script transactions. We always had the ability to roll our own transactions, and it had a unique and particular way of working with the need to use dedicated relationships. New script steps promise a whole new way of architecting solutions transactionally. This talk focuses on the reasons one would want to embrace script transactions, how they work, and a look at the performance considerations, especially for solutions over a WAN. A new chapter of FileMaker will usher in a new set of possibilities, in how solutions are architected by simplifying and reducing the code needed to implement transactions while providing possibilities to enhance performance.


Speaker: Fabio Bosisio, Senior Developer, Beezwax
Date: October 8, 2022
Time: 11:30 – 12:30, CEST

Summary: In this presentation, Fabio Bosisio will show you how you can “talk” and ask your FileMaker application for information using a BOT. With this type of integration you can make requests to your database or create information using Siri Shortcuts and voice commands (even from your smart watch) or simply type your request into a messaging system such as Slack or Facebook Messenger.

Chatbot spoken input and action flow, with command to book a hotel, interpreted with Intent, Utterances, Slots, Prompts, and Fulfillment.
