Join Us for an Exclusive Look at the All-New FileMaker 10!


We have a very special featured speaker coming from FileMaker this evening - Matt O’Dell, our regional FileMaker Systems Engineer!

Matt will be giving us an overview of the new features in FileMaker 10, and their implications both for making life easier for FileMaker users and for new techniques for the developer. What’s new in FileMaker 10?

- The newly redesigned user interface (Status Toolbar)

- Saved Finds

- Dynamic Reporting

- Office 2007 support

- Native SMTP mailing for easier emailing directly from FileMaker

- Updated Templates and New Themes

- Enhanced Quick Start Screen

- Bento Integration

- Script Triggers

- New Resource Center

- Set Field By Name script step

- Insert Tab Order

- More comprehensive/improved ESS Support

- Better File Recovery auditing and more granular Recovery options

Obviously, more than a mere human can cover in one sitting - so we’ll be cherry-picking features to talk about. This is a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor with an expert and learn about FileMaker 10 first hand.

Then our very own Philly FileMaker group member Chad Sager will follow up with a presentation on some interesting programming applications for new features in FileMaker 10. He’s been experimenting since the beta came out, and has implemented some very thoughtful ideas that will give us a sense of how these new features can really change the way we program.

As always, pizza and soft drinks will be provided.

Please RSVP here if you are planning to attend this meeting:
