Claris Engage 2020 virtual experience was almost like being there in person
The first Claris Engage, a successor of FileMaker DevCons, was originally planned to take place in Nashville, Tennessee. The coronavirus pandemic has changed plans for most live events this year, and so Claris Engage turned to a virtual experience. We attended, and even participated as a virtual exhibitor, and it surpassed all our expectations. So let us share our highlights of the conference with you.
Learning from the sessions is great, but the biggest value in every conference lies outside of the session rooms, in networking with the peers, being able to discuss problems and ideas, and even the content from the sessions, with other developers. I wondered what the virtual conference will be without this experience. Until Geist Interactive came up AutoEnter.live, the “Claris Engage Watch Party and Virtual Trade Show”, just about a week ahead of the conference.
Finally, everyone attending a conference wants to take something valuable away back home. In the best case it is new knowledge and new ideas to apply on real projects.
To get the most out of our participation in Claris Engage 2020, each of our developers has prepared a demo or example going deeper into one of the topics presented in the conference sessions. Then we organized an internal followup mini-conference to share the demos and discuss how we can immediately apply them to the benefit of our customers.
But this is only a short excerpt from our whole recap of the conference. It you're interested, click here to read the whole recap.
