MacNN Project: FileMaker Pro part 5 -- Not Pictured | MacNN | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

It all sounded so easy one week ago when we revealed that we were going to make a Job Book database in FileMaker Pro and for the most part, it has been very easy. We took a deep dive into fields on Wednesday which meant absorbing terms that might be new and using database calculations that -- to us anyway -- felt like Sudoku puzzles to be solved. Otherwise, though, it was a pretty smooth ride from idea to final working database. That's the key thing here: the database is working.

FileMaker Serializers Compared | ScaleFM

FileMaker Serializers Compared | ScaleFM | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

Serialization is a common technique used to enclose multiple items or complex data structures into a simplified stream of information. That stream can be stored or transported and then later retrieved. The most common place we see serialization used in FileMaker, is for passing multiple script parameters. As the medium for transporting information between scripts is limited, developers serialize their data and then later reconstruct it. There are certainly other opportunities to use serialization in FileMaker, maybe you haven’t considered them all:

We're building a Job Book in FileMaker Pro: a database that we are genuinely using in freelance work to log and do some basic tracking of the commissions we get. Last week we explained what this was about, and why we know it's the way to take a productive deep dive into the very powerful database app. Today we're doing something that might not sound right: we're leaving FileMaker Pro.

FileMaker mobile development just got VERY interesting. Yesterday, FileMaker released the iOS App SDK for FileMaker that allows developers to build a native iOS app with FileMaker.

IOS Application SDK For FileMaker – FAQS

January 12, 2016/1 Comment/in Announcements /by Todd Geist
Today FileMaker Inc. announced the FileMaker iOS Application SDK, a toolkit for building fully native iOS Apps. This is awesome. Finally we can build applications for iPads and iPhones that look and behave just like native applications. How does it all work, though? Read on to find out more.


We got this working with GoZync, our framework for building offline apps with FileMaker Go, almost immediately. It works beautifully. You can see it in action at Seedcode’s blog.

During the process of getting GoZync to work we figured somethings out.  Below you’ll find some FAQs that cover the questions we had and the answers we got. Richard Carlton and I will be hosting a webinar this Friday to cover a bunch of this info. Make sure you register early as space will likely fill up.

MacNN Project: FileMaker Pro part 3 -- Become a Field Agent | MacNN | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

Previously on this MacNN project, we realized we had a problem, and that a database would be the solution. To our mind, that means a FileMaker Pro solution. It means FileMaker in part because we've used that application in one-man companies and international media ones; it also means that because we've learned how flexible it is.

MacNN Project: Make a Job Book Database in FileMaker Pro | MacNN | Filemaker Info | Scoop.it

Come with us on a week-long dive into the database app FileMaker Pro 14. We've previously enthused about it in a review and various MacNN staff have been using it to run book research projects that lasted years. Yet this isn't a product, this isn't an application, this is a world: FileMaker Pro is a behemoth. Individuals, companies, corporations use this but the reason FileMaker Pro is not lauded as much as we think it should be is that it's not one thing. You don't buy FileMaker Pro and run your business. You buy it and develop your own database that then organizes your firm, transforms your work, and takes over your life.

iOS App SDK Guide

Introducing iOS App SDK

Use iOS App SDK to build a standalone iOS app from your FileMaker solution. After creating the app, use one of the deployment options to distribute your app. See Deploying your app.

Here are some benefits of building iOS apps from your FileMaker solutions:

  • You can deploy FileMaker solutions the same way you deploy other business apps for your organization.
  • Users can access your FileMaker solutions similar to other iOS apps. They don't need to install FileMaker Go to use the solutions.
  • You can choose the appearance of your solutions by customizing the app icon and launch image.
