OnWindowTransaction script trigger, leveraging it along with native FileMaker script transactions to create an audit log that is efficient, scalable, flexible, performant, and convenient to implement.
FileMaker 2023 introduces
Perform Script on Server with Callback, a new asynchronous method to execute scripts with FileMaker Server. Now we have a way for FileMaker Server to execute another script, a “Callback” script, when one script is done processing via
Perform Script on Server. It’s like calling your virtual assistant and instead of waiting on the phone for 5 minutes for info, they basically call you back when they are ready with an answer.
The end result is improved performance, better management of complex script workflow, enhanced user experience, and new possibilities for handling integration with APIs, email and services like Claris Connect.

Alec Gregory from Beezwax presents at DIGFM & Bay Area FileMaker Developer Meetup.
Script transactions in Claris FileMaker are finally here, but wait! Haven’t we done “transactions” in FileMaker for a long time? Yes and Yes. But script transactions are different and the main advantages, that I see, are the possibilities of simplifying code and improving solution performance. I’ll elaborate on these in this post. And, of course, there is also the inherent benefit of doing things transactionally … all or nothing is the law of the data.

When it comes to choosing web development technologies, we now have more options than ever. And while that’s a good thing, it also poses a problem. Answering the question, “What is the ideal technology for this new project?” is not as easy as it used to be. In this post, I briefly highlight the most popular full-stack web frameworks, and why you might want to choose each of them.

Datathon for Social Good 2022 is the 4th-annual event for UC Berkeley students to show off their data science skills through real-world project applications. With a focus on technology applied toward social good, this Datathon allows participants the opportunity to explore and tackle current social issues by employing data science to leave a real-world impact.
An Exploration into Environmental Justice & Urban Sciences
This year’s Datathon has several competition tracks that focus on different societal issues ranging from urban sciences to environmental sustainability. Datasets and tools will be provided by CalData, Earth Hacks and Deepnote. Teams create visualizations, analyses, or machine learning models addressing any aspect of the given datasets, which are then presented to partnering organizations and judges.

Today we’re going to talk about GitOps with GitHub Actions, including an example of this workflow:
A developer team creates a new branch, with a Pull Request (PR), which triggers a GitHub Action, which runs AWS CodeDeploy, which deploys the application code update from GitHub to a web application on an Amazon EC2 instance.
Originally presented at Beezwax’s internal “Developer Show & Share”, this video presentation covers “GitOps with GitHub Actions” by Victor Olivo, Beezwax DevOps Engineer.
