Beezwax Sponsors EngageU: The Biggest Claris® FileMaker® Developer Conference

Christos Savva and Vince Menanno Present Rapid Serverless Integrations and FileMaker Native Script Transactions

This week, Nov 13-15, we’re in Malmö, at EngageU. It’s the biggest Claris / FileMaker Developer community event worldwide in 2022. In fact, EngageU promises to be the largest in-person Claris Community event in Europe, ever!

Claris is EngageU’s primary sponsor, and the conference welcomes several Claris employees and technical staff, including Opening Keynote speakers: Claris CEO, Brad Freitag and Claris Platform Product Owner, Robert Holsey. Other speakers will also include top-level partners from Europe and from all over the world with continuing focus on innovations in Claris® platform development.

Christos Savva and Vincenzo Menanno from Beezwax present two sessions:

Rapid Serverless Integrations

Speaker: Christos Savva, Senior Developer, Beezwax
Date: November 15, 2022
Time: 10:30 – 11:30, CET

Summary: Let’s go serverless! In this session we will go over techniques leveraging third-party app SDKs in a serverless framework. We’ll develop rapid integrations with FileMaker, using AWS Lambda as an example of serverless, as well as comparing this with a server-based approach using Python. To demonstrate this technique we will do live coding and build a fully ready integration between FileMaker and the payments app SquareUp. Participants should have basic familiarity with how APIs work as well as Python.

The New Horizon: Native Script Transactions in FileMaker

Speaker: Vincenzo Menanno, Chief Innovation Officer, Beezwax
Date: November 14, 2022
Time: 10:30 – 11:30, CET

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.
