Of course, FileMaker and programming aren’t my entire life (although my wife might argue that point at times).

I’ve been married now for 20 years (yes, I met my wife and FileMaker in the same year) and we have two children, aged 14 and 12.

Don’t let your data become a lost Magna Carta | The FileMakers

Don’t let your data become a lost Magna Carta | The FileMakers | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

What’s tucked away in the back of your filing cabinet? Probably not £10 million…

   
This week it emerged that an original copy of one of the rarest documents in the world, Magna Carta, was recently discovered in some council archives in the Kentish town of Sandwich.

Tucked inside a Victorian scrapbook, the 715 year old prestigious text has an estimated value of around £10 million (despite being ripped, and around a third of the text and royal seal missing).

There’s real value in information – be it historical or current – if only we can find it.

 


So what about our data today – how do we avoid losing it in a scrapbook at the back of an archive?

Design Patterns: "Cards" in SeedCode Complete 13 | FileMaker

Design Patterns: "Cards" in SeedCode Complete 13 | FileMaker | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it

...

 

In designing Complete We wanted to make the design patterns consistent throughout the entire solution.

For example, when looking at a Contact–whether on the Contact layout or as a related contact on another layout–we wanted that presentation to be the same.  

The pattern we established in the main Contact layout would therefore be replicated throughout the solution so users could always recognize the interface for “Contacts”.

Before FileMaker 13, this would be a challenge because there would typically not be enough real estate to show detailed Contact information in other contexts–on a Project layout, for example–without intruding on the Project information or seeming out of place.

With 13, pop-overs and slide panels give us a lot more flexibility.

 

...

Didier Daglinckx's insight:

SeedCode Complete offers a comprehensive framework for contacts and project tracking.

It’s more than a calendar, it’s a massive head start on your next FileMaker database.

The 37 best tools for data visualization | FileMaker tools

The 37 best tools for data visualization | FileMaker tools | Learning FileMaker | Scoop.it
Creating charts and info graphics can be time-consuming. But these tools make it easier.

It’s often said that data is the new world currency, and the web is the exchange bureau through which it’s traded.

 

As consumers, we’re positively swimming in data; it’s everywhere from labels on food packaging design to World Health Organisation reports.

As a result, for the designer it’s becoming increasingly difficult to present data in a way that stands out from the mass of competing data streams.


One of the best ways to get your message across is to use a visualization to quickly draw attention to the key messages, and by presenting data visually it’s also possible to uncover surprising patterns and observations that wouldn’t be apparent from looking at stats alone.

 

...

 

Explore the different possibilities on analyticsweek.com post ...

Didier Daglinckx's insight:

FileMaker offers graphics you can use quite easily but if you want/need to go further a combination of FileMaker and one of the tools describe here can be pretty awesome.
