  1. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/punishing-performance/ In this PodCast, we highlight yet another hero in the FileMaker market, Wim Decorte of Soliant Consulting. As long as there has been FileMaker, it seems like Wim has been there helping people on the message boards, writing white papers and presenting at Claris DevCon/Engage. He even created an open source FileMaker product, called the Punisher, aimed at testing a FileMaker solution over the network. We’ll discuss the Punisher and where you can get it, as well as optimizing performance on FileMaker Server, FileMaker Pro and Fil
  2. Do you need to separate a block of text into individual fields? You cold use the Position function and a combination of left, middle and right functions or you could use the KISS method. https://youtu.be/n32QR6VqXjc Check out www.filemakercommunitycollege.com for more tutorials.
  3. Stay safe these holidays in these most difficult of times. We'll be back in the New Year with a fascinating conversation that we're sure you will enjoy.
  4. Apologies to all who've wanted to download the 1st FileMaker Challenge. For some reason, the web page was loading very slowly and many people gave up so here is a direct download link: https://www.filemakercommunitycollege.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/FileMakerChallenge_1..zip
  5. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/going-vertical/ Developing a vertical market FileMaker solution is something that many developers have wanted to do but few do it because they don't have the depth of knowledge as to how to go about it. In this fascinating conversation Michael Rocharde & Marc Larochelle, both of whom have developed successful vertical market solutions, talk with John Mark Osborne about all the different things that have to be taken into account. Using case studies we disect the different methods of deployment, how you find a niche market to develop for, the impo
  6. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/anaylze-this-appealing-to-ones-base-elements/ In this episode, we are joined by a very special guest, Nick Orr from Goya, in Australia (https://goya.com.au). Nick is the creator of BaseElements, a FileMaker analysis tool which has been around since 2006 and which is one of the preeminent analysis tools for FileMaker developers. We’re also joined by our regular guest Marc Larochelle from Productive Computing (https://www.ProductiveComputing.com). Marc has created a dedicated course for BaseElements available at Productive Computing University (https:
  7. Fireside FileMaker Episode 35 - UI vs. UX Every once in a while, we find ourselves with a guest who brings a totally unexpected and fascinating viewpoint. These are the episodes that go way beyond the 'you should listen' and reach ‘you must listen'. Today's podcast is one of those episodes. We are joined by Darrin Southern, from CadenceUX in Melbourne, Australia, for an absolutely incredible conversation which starts with the somewhat 'new' concept of UX (the User Experience) and then veers off into some very intersting territory. Both John Mark and I learned a lot and you will also.
  8. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/these-are-a-few-of-our-favorite-things-part-2/ In this two part podcast, John Mark and I go back deep into the past to discuss the most important and influential features released in each version of FileMaker. Many, if not most, of these fetures are still in use today but they have all paved the way for the deveopment powerhouse that FieMaker is today. Even though, nobody really needs to know when these features came about, we think you will find this episode more than a little interesting and, as always, we'd love to hear your comments. Part 1

  10. Last week, the 1st Claris Engage conference took place, virtually, over a 2 day period. John Mark and I plus our special guest Marc Larochele (from Productive Computing) reminisce about previous DevCons and then, at 11 minutes in, we start to discuss the conference itself. (All of the sessions are available to watch at the Claris Comminity website. Login and then click on Academy, fill in the simple questionnaire and then click on Engage On-Demand). What you will get in this podcast is our perspective and thoughts and we think you’ll find it a worthwhile listen. https://firesidefilemaker.
  11. We invited Darren Terry on our show to talk about the calculation dependency tree (what triggers calculations to fire). What we got was so much more than we expected. Darren’s close ties with Claris engineers and dedication to the platform has given him insight into how FileMaker works under the hood. To put it simply, both of us were flabbergasted at how much he taught us about FileMaker. Come join us in this in this "can’t miss" PodCast about the calculation engine and whatever else comes across Darren’s big brain. (Our regular guest, Marc Larochelle had this to say "You can plant an entire
