December 4, 2007 in FileMaker (E)
[prMac.com] FMPug, the world wide member organization of FileMaker Pro developers and IS/IT supporters of FileMaker products, today announced the immediate availability of an on-line site where all members of the FileMaker community can register preferences and suggestions for workshop sessions for the 2008 FileMaker Developers Conference (DEVCON) to be held in Phoenix in July.
The site can be accessed directly via the FMPug home page.
May Offer to Assume Responsibility For Recruiting Presenters. According to Andy Gaunt, FMPug Founder, "After analyzing the results of our recent post DEVCON 2007 survey it became apparent that our members very much like the new workshop format and want to see it expanded. We are providing this new web page for all members of the FileMaker community to offer topic suggestions. We will provide FileMaker, Inc. and Advisor Media, Inc. with a ranked report of all the suggestions. FMPug may also offer to assume responsibility for putting on a number of these workshops if our members express sufficient interest in our doing so."
The popular workshop format has long been a favorite request of FileMaker developers, and in 2006 it was introduced into the official DEVCON schedule, after having been informally employed by multiple groups of developers since 2001.
"FMPug is dedicated to expanding educational opportunities for our members so that their careers are enhanced and so that they can help spread the use and acceptance of FileMaker products throughout the world," Gaunt added. "When there's a lot of FileMaker out there, both in expanded use for existing customers and in creation of new new customers, that's good both for FMPug members and for FileMaker. That's why, subject to our members' expressions of interest, FMPug would be willing to assume responsibility for producing some of these workshops."
