The 8th FileMaker Konferenz is happening October 12 – 14, 2017 at the Crowne Plaza Pitter Event Center in Salzburg, Austria.
At the konferenz Vincenzo Menanno, director of FileMaker Development for Beezwax presents two sessions on advanced FileMaker development:
Last year when I wrote this blog post we were talking about FileMaker 16 and the Data API being in beta. Now that FileMaker 17 has officially been released and along with it the the Data API is out of beta and is a version 1.0. An important change to note is that if you were using Tableau to connect to your your Data using the Web Data Connector using FileMaker 16, then I am sure that you have heard about the release of FileMaker 17. Hopefully you will be upgrading soon to continue using these 2 solutions together. Two other important things to mention is. First, the Data API with FieMaker 16 will stop functioning.
The FileMaker Data API (Trial) License will expire on September 27, 2018.
The second import item is that the url has changed so when you establish your connection with Tableau you’ll need to be sure to use the correct url. They have included a version number in it to future proof it.
Also wanted to mention that over the course of the last year Tableau also made some significant additions and improvements that are worth checking out and getting upgraded.
It’s here and I feel like I have to tell the whole world… which is what I am doing! Now that FileMaker 16 is officially announced, there are lots of exciting things to talk about that are now possible. I think one of the most powerful new features that have been introduced in version 16 is the capability to integrate with other applications or services. There is so much to talk about what now becomes possible with FileMaker and other services/applications.
If you’ve developed solutions with FileMaker for any length of time, you’ve almost certainly created files using FileMaker’s native Excel exports. Although quite useful, this feature gives almost no control over the formatting, and definitely no way to set formulas, charts, or even text formatting.
InspectorPro 5.5 is here! With it come some great enhancements and complete support for FileMaker 14:
It’s FileMaker Developer Conference time, with 8 Beez in San Antonio for DevCon. We’re studying new development techniques from FileMaker Inc. and our industry peers, sharing a few methods of our own and even riding a few mechanical bulls at a real live cattle ranch!
As a participant-driven “Unconference”, d3.unconf allowed us to interact with other d3 devotees in sessions that ranged from “New to d3” through “Multivariate Data” and “Visualizing Neural Networks”.
