Welcome! On behalf of myself and Cris Ippolite we thank you for taking the time to check out this valuable learning opportunity. Cris and I are both seasoned FileMaker developers whose careers took off after attending the 1997 Devcon in Monterey, California. It was at this conference that we met other developers and gave us both confidence that there was a great need for our services.
One of the greatest problems facing the FileMaker Community today is lack of qualified developers. As such, Cris and I are each offering to fund a first time Devcon attendee’s conference pass. We understand that when you’re starting out funding the conference fee, hotel and airfare is not easy and we’re hoping that by offering these scholarships we’ll make it possible for 2 individuals who would not normally be able to attend to join us.
