  • Sky is the limit: Let FileMaker take you to the cloud with superior web service integration

    -

    Forget all about what you could and couldn’t do with web service access from FileMaker without plug-ins: Now you can do (almost) it all! The foundation for all the magic is the cURL function (reads “see URL” – pronounced “curl”) used throughout the internet. cURL celebrates its 20th anniversary this year by gaining almost full exposure in FileMaker ScriptMaker. It may look less shiny on the surface than we FileMaker developers are used to, but with a world of opportunities that price is worth paying.
    We celebrate the anniversary by looking at the amazing portfolio of new web service functions in FileMaker 16 (also the non-cURL-related ones). Apart from more control over the web service communication we will also explore the new ability to parse and update JSON data structures, convert character encodings and encrypt and decrypt data.

    Throughout the presentation we will look at actual web services and leverage FileMaker 16 functionality to access them. Send me suggestions for web services you would like to access at ajv@zordesign.dk and your request may turn up as an example in the presentation!

  • MirrorSync – FileMaker Servers, AWS and Load balancing

    -

    AWS deployment, along with how MirrorSync can be used with multiple FileMaker Servers clustered on AWS with load balancing between them.

    The first half of the session will be a fast-paced tutorial on deploying FileMaker Server using Amazon Web Services (AWS). Many specific details will be touched on, such as ideal volume partitioning, elastic IP addresses, and selecting the right type of EC2 instance. The benefits of using Amazon Machine Images (AMI) to simplify routine IT maintenance will be discussed.

    The second half of the session will consist of a load balancing demonstration: Multiple FileMaker Servers will be deployed using AWS and Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), with MirrorSync configured to keep the two servers in sync. This will demonstrate the increased load that can be handled. If time permits, we will simulate a disaster scenario on one server to show how the load balancer seamlessly redirects all requests to the other server, and how MirrorSync assists in bringing back the failed server quickly.

  • Hosting your FileMaker custom apps

    -

    We will look into the options for hosting your FileMaker custom apps with FileMaker Cloud and FileMaker Server. This will be a Hands-on session about server. You will learn how to install and deploy FileMaker server using best practise. We will also look at the technologies around the server, such as SSL, NAT, DNS and more.

    After this session you will be able to setup a FileMaker server or FileMaker Cloud to host your custom FileMaker apps.

  • Pause

    -

  • The use of FileMaker 16, extended insert of URL with JSON functions

    -

    In this session, we will be looking at ways to use FileMaker 16’s extended insert from url and new JSON functions. I’ll be showing you how to extend FileMakers ecosystems with the use of cURL. You will learn how to access external APIs using InsertFromURL and cURL parameters. I will show you how to take care of the result with the new powerful JSON functions.

  • ExecuteSQL and Custom Functions: a winning team

    -

    ExecuteSQL has been with us since FileMaker 12, but are you really using it to the max?
    We\'ll start by prying a real error description out of FileMaker for the SQL statements instead of that dreaded “?” Then we create custom functions to make SQL statements resilient to field and table name changes and avoid name clashes with unexpected reserved names. Finally we are ready for some serious ExecuteSQL work!
    We will look at various applications of ExecuteSQL in unexpected places: Custom functions that access your data free of context to encapsulate business logic (why not calculate a price dynamically in a custom function using queries to item and price tables on the fly?) Use simple ExecuteSQL statements when you need auto-enter options instead of cluttering the graph? Or how about applying undocumented ExecuteSQL functionality to query the database schema and help you keep an eye on your data structures to target unused fields for deletion and help you ensuring that data integrity is preserved when migrating data?
    A little prior knowledge of SQL will be helpful (this is not a SQL 101 session) but we will stick to basic SELECT statements spiced up with an occasional JOIN or two to prove what you can do instead of focusing on the intricate aspects of SQL syntax.

  • Pause

    -

  • FileMaker API and Oauth

    -

    The FileMaker Data API works with OAuth, but that can be difficult to set up. We will walk through all steps involved, refer to some general OAuth concepts, and look at an example PHP Client Application connecting to a FileMaker database using the Data API.

    It will be a rather technical session, and although helpful, no prior knowledge of OAuth or PHP is required.

  • Lunch

    -

  • FileMaker & AI

    -

    Discover how easy it is now to integrate FileMaker with Artificial Intelligence using the new features of FileMaker 16. We use an AI for image recognition with a FileMaker custom app for a commercial casting bureau. Learn how in this stunning example a robot completely takes over the data entry and allows to explore the images in a way that was not possible before.

    End the session with an open discussion: how will we be building FileMaker apps in the near future with robots taking over more and more parts of the data entry?

  • Benefits of creating a API in your database

    -

    API is the new thing to communicate with the world and also letting the world reach your solution. What are the ways to handle a API in your solution and how to we suggest you set it up to get the most out of it. Real world cases that had been proven stabil and reliable for the FileMaker World.

  • Summary of DevCon

    -

    As a FileMaker Developer, going to USA to attend FileMaker DevCon is a big possibility to meet the best developers of the world and attained sessions in all kind of area where FileMaker are involved.

    This session will give you the best session material that I could find during the four days the conference took place in Phoenix, USA in July.

  • Centralised API Application Support

    -

    Following on from a presentation and discussion at the dotFMP un-conference in Berlin, I decided to take the use of APIs and integrations further. Using the latest Card Windows in FileMaker Pro 16 we can deliver a Centralised API Application Support module with a minimal amount of work.

    I would like show some really easy ways to integrate with an API, deliver a consistent UX to all your customers/applications and also have a clear, concise way to manage any requests that might come in from you customers over time.
