  1. With the release of Cloud 2.0, hosting a FileMaker solution has become more complex due to a myriad of choices. With our special guest Marc Larochelle, we’ll go through the assortment of hosting options while comparing and contrasting them. By the end of our conversation, you should have a good idea what flavor of FileMaker hosting is best for your business. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/your-host-awaits-you/ Supporting documents you might find useful FM Server versus FM Cloud for AWS: https://www.filemaker.com/products/filemaker-cloud-for-aws/compare.html FM Server versus FM Cloud 2.0: https://www.filemaker.com/products/filemaker-cloud/docs/fms_vs_fmc_wwe.pdf FileMaker Cloud for AWS tech specs: https://www.filemaker.com/products/filemaker-cloud-for-aws/1-17-technical-specifications.html FileMaker Cloud Tech Specs: https://www.filemaker.com/products/filemaker-cloud/2-18-technical-specifications.html FileMaker Server Tech Specs: https://www.filemaker.com/products/filemaker-server/18-technical-specifications.html FileMaker Platform (version 18) deprecation list: https://support.filemaker.com/s/article/Deprecated-and-removed-features-in-FileMaker-18?language=en_US
  2. In FileMaker, context is everything but what does that mean? How do you know if you are in the correct context and what happens if you're not? (HINT: most programming errors are due to being out of context). In this podcast, we discuss everything related to context, using real world examples, so that developers fully understand this most important concept. We also talk about all of the different places where context is important, starting with the relationship graph and, in the process, discuss relationships, the differences between tables and table occurrences and explain anchor-buoy, perhaps the most commonly used method for managing the relationship graph. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/keeping-things-in-context/
  3. Marc Larochelle, CEO of Productive Computing, is a FileMaker veteran with almost three decades of experience.

  5. Since starting the Fireside FileMaker podcast at the end of July, we've been working at a frenetic pace, planning episodes, recording and then editing them for a weekly release. With 14 episodes released, and over 7000 downloads, we are now going to be releasing new episodes once every two weeks instead of every week. This will give us some breathing room and allow newer listeners to catch up on episodes they've missed. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/ UPCOMING EPISODES (Release Dates subject to change) Oct 16 - Keeping things in Context Oct 30 - What if ...? Nov 13 - Developing In-House Nov 27 - Should you modularize? We've also got a couple of very interesting interviews lined up and we'll be announcing them once they've been completed. If you have an idea for a podcast or a comment on one we've already done, please email it to info@firesidefilemaker.com. As always, thanks for listening. John Mark Osborne & Michael Rocharde
  6. The Ubiquitous Calculation Engine The calculation engine is everywhere in the FileMaker interface and for good reason. It adds additional functionality wherever it's employed. It enhances scripting, allows auto-entering related data, provides record level access, hides objects and so much more. To say the calculation engine is invaluable is an understatement. We’ll discuss the ins and outs of the calculation engine in all the different areas where it used so as to provide a big picture view of this crucial feature. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/the-ubiquitous-calculation-engine/
  7. The FileMaker certification exam has been around since FileMaker 7 and is defined as a credential that demonstrates to clients, peers and management your FileMaker skill level. To this date, it’s still the only real method for measuring that level. In this Podcast, we discuss the history of certification, what is required to pass it and generally everything you need to know to be successful. We also ponder whether the effort is worth it? What are the advantages and disadvantages of certification? Will certification translate into more business? Can you do just as well without it? https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/certified
  8. Developing the Interface FileMaker solutions can live and die by the interface alone. It’s the first thing a user sees and can sway their opinion in the first few seconds of them seeing it for the first time. It’s so important but many developers don’t give it much thought. How do you develop an interface that clients want to use and which makes it easy for them to do their job? Do you use a standard theme or do you take the time and trouble to develop a custom theme that you can use over and over again? How do you size the screens? How much color should you use? How do you take into account that some of your users may be color blind? These and more points are considered to give you a well rounded look at interface design. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/developing-the-interface/ Follow us on iTunes https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/fireside-filemaker/id1473715087?mt=2&app=itunes Follow us on Podbean https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com
  9. K.I.S.S. KISS stands for Keep it Simple, Stupid. It’s a funny acronym but a very important concept to apply to the FileMaker development process. Too many developers over-engineer FileMaker solutions, charging clients more than is necessary. KISS is about elegance, about making it easier for someone new to take over a project without having to wade through complicated, modularized scripts that are almost impossible to debug. We live and breathe KISS and hope that, after listening to this podcast, you will too. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/kiss-keeping-it-simple-stupid/
  10. The Workplace Innovation Platform (WIP) is a newly defined technology category, by G2.com, for which FileMaker is the leader. There are 27 other software applications on the list and FileMaker was voted the best in the category. While the category itself is new, FileMaker has been WIP compliant for more than 30 years making it very hard for all of its competitors to catch up. Come find out what makes FileMaker uniquely qualified as a visual design and full-stack development application, collaborative, secure, integrative and supportive like no other WIP tool on the planet. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/wip-your-business-into-shape/

  13. Welcome Back Claris - Episode #7 At the FileMaker Developer Conference last week, FileMaker, Inc. announced they had changed their name to Claris International and purchased Stamplay.

We’ll share our thoughts on the announcement and even speculate as to what the future holds. Come join us for this exciting new era for FileMaker. https://firesidefilemaker.podbean.com/e/welcome-back-claris/ P.S. This is our 7th episode.

  15. Chino Hills, Calif., July 22nd, 2019 — John Mark Osborne and I would like to invite you to join us at the Fireside FileMaker podcast (http://www.firesidefilemaker.com or https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/fireside-filemaker/id1473715087) for a series of interesting and, we hope, thought-provoking conversations about everything FileMaker™ from two passionate developers with a total of almost 60 years developing FileMaker solutions. “Michael and I have created FileMaker example files, written blogs, recorded videos, released example files, presented in public and even published books but we have never had the opportunity to record informal chats about FileMaker, much like you would with a FileMaker colleague. We are excited that this medium will allow us to explore FileMaker in a way we’ve never ventured previously”, says John Mark Osborne. The first 4 episodes are available on iTunes https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/fireside-filemaker/id1473715087 or at the firesidefilemaker.com web site: Episode 1 - Native FileMaker Technologies Episode 2 - The Data Separation Model Episode 3 - FileMaker & Excel Episode 4 - How to Become a Professional FileMaker Developer Our philosophy behind these chats is to make you feel like you’re sitting right next to us around a campfire listening to our conversation. It’s casual, sometimes funny but always informative and thought provoking in a way we couldn’t be in a book, blog article, video or example file. Come join us at Fireside FileMaker, listen to an episode and give us your feedback.
