  1. Thorsen has provided support for the selective enrollment processes for over 10 years. Of particular relevance is our recent development of an algorithm to leverage CPS purchased IPSCII selection silo. When the current vendor was unable to produce the needed functionality to display this year’s selection results, we partnered with CPS to sync data from the current system and display it to parents and administrators via a web portal linked to the current School Mint system. We delivered that solution over the course of 8 weeks resulting in on-time, on-budget delivery. View the full article

  12. by New Features and Training Resources for FileMaker 14 The latest release from FileMaker came just after the start of our June 2015 JumpStartFM class. Molly Connolly put together a quick list of tips and resources for developers tackling the changes in FM14: Cris Ippolite has added two videos to his comprehensive training course on Lynda.com. One video covers the new features available in FileMaker 14 and the other offers training on those new features to get you started. Cris Ippolite is a skilled instructor and his Lynda.com videos and JumpStartFM sessions are favorites among our students. Soliant Consulting has prepared a series of short instructional videos for FM14. The free videos “Unboxing FileMaker 14″ are posted on the Soliant Consulting blog and on YouTube. Martha Zink’s demonstration of “The New Script Workspace” is helpful to anyone who wants to learn to write scripts with more efficiency: Richard Carlton Consulting has updated his 30 hour video series for FileMaker 14. This very affordable short course is summarized in the introductory video available on the website. What FM14 training resources are you finding helpful? by View the full article
  13. by FileMaker DevCon 2015 DevCon 2015 is just around the corner and I’m busy planning my schedule and getting ready to help out with the pre-conference training sessions.

  14. by Kimberly Carlson is VP of Operations but is new to FileMaker. After about a year in her position at MSN Media, she decided to take the plunge and join the June 2015 JumpStartFM. “I’d never heard of FileMaker before last August,” said Carlson. “I started working with Matt Navarre at MSN Media full time in September, and I’ve been aching to learn it ever since.” After the live kick-off event on June 1, Carlson completed the JumpStartFM training plan. Completed by each student who participates in the course, this document begins the conversation with the instructors that helps them tailor JumpStartFM to the learning goals of each individual. The JumpStartFM training plan asks students to identify a set of desired learning outcomes for the one-month course as well as a few short-term and long-term goals for their careers. Kimberly Carlson says, “After my conversation with Molly Connolly, we agreed that my initial goals for JumpStartFM were set way too high. Molly has so much experience training new developers. She helped me take on a more realistic approach given my experience with FileMaker is fairly limited.” After discussing her training plan, Molly and Kimberly agreed on a revised set of learning outcomes. At the end of the JumpStartFM FileMaker training course, Kimberly will be able to take on QA and testing; billing clients after just one month. The training plan also asks JumpStartFM students to identify some measures of success so that they can evaluate their progress toward their own learning goals. Even after just one week of JumpStartFM, a new developer like Kimberly Carlson is able to measure a change in her FileMaker skill set: “What used to take me ten minutes now takes me ten seconds. What seemed overwhelming at first is starting to flow. It’s really quite satisfying to know I can create a button that performs a script and WORKS.” by View the full article
  15. by New Format for JumpStartFM Online FileMaker Training JumpStartFM just wrapped up its June session and this group of students is the first to try out the new format for the course. The June 2015 class kicked off with a live session led by Molly Connolly. Using a web-conferencing program, students received an overview of the course and its objectives and students had the chance to introduce themselves to one another. Registered JumpStartFM students receive a login that enables access to the live presentations, recorded instruction videos and course assignments. This format allows for flexibility for students with busy schedules. If you can find wifi or have access to a personal hotspot, you can go to class! The second session was a recorded presentation on professional skill building for FileMaker developers. In this screen shot, you’ll see some of the tips Debbie Zempel gave JumpStartFM students in the Design & Usability lectures: Many self-employed developers join JumpStartFM when they are ready to take their skills to the next level. Other developers might be trying to position themselves to take on more responsibility on company projects. Students are telling us that the convenience and flexibility of JumpStartFM’s new format makes it much, much easier to find time for professional development, which is great! The next JumpStartFM session is scheduled for September, 2015. Send us an email if you’d like more information about the next class. by View the full article
