FileMaker Scripting Intensive

The first half of the day we will cover the key concepts of writing clear, effective, efficient scripts. After lunch we move into full workshop mode as students get to plan and implement scripts in their own solutions! A team approach to the afternoon ensures that the “What’s the best way to do this?” is answered before students grab their keyboards and start coding. Every part of the day will be bathed in best practices.

Instructors

Our instructors are practicing consultants who bring valuable real-world experience and best practices to the classes they teach.

Lee Lukehart is a veteran FileMaker trainer and has earned every developer certification that FileMaker has offered (15/14/13/12/11/10/9/8/7). He authored the popular white paper on FileMaker Pro Charting and the TechNet webinar on advanced charting techniques.

An enthusiastic FileMaker advocate, Lee has presented sessions at Macworld Expo, Bootcamp for FileMaker, and the last four FileMaker Developer Conferences (DevCon). He has written articles for FileMaker Advisor, and served for a year as the "Advisor Answers" columnist in Advisor Basics for FileMaker magazine.

Lee has been using FileMaker to solve client problems for more than two decades, and he began creating and providing FileMaker instruction formally in 2004. His students appreciate his attentive manner and patience in the classroom, and they say his responsive training style makes learning new skills fast and fun.

Jim Medema has trained more than 1000 students in the art and science of relational database development using FileMaker products and related supporting applications. Jim has earned every developer certification and authorized trainer certification that FileMaker has offered (15/14/13/12/11/10/9/8/7).

Originally trained to be an educator, Jim guides an ongoing conversation in every class about best practices - the tasks, techniques and habits that set apart the exceptional from the average. In the same way that knowing how to use a hammer and saw won’t make you a master carpenter, knowing what a FileMaker feature does won’t make you a star developer. Jim's goal is to guide you to knowledgeable and then on to exceptional!

Course content can be intense, but we always laugh and eat well! Oh, and for what it’s worth, Jim’s B.A. was in English, so your chances of actually understanding the class without a geek translation device are extremely high!
