January 17, 2008 in FileMaker (E)
[prMac.com] Are you planning on going to DevCon 2008? We are already gearing up for this years annual FileMaker Developer Conference in Phoenix, Arizona and wanted to let you know the first of the FMPug giveaways is now official.
Meet Your (potential) Macbook Air
Just announced at this year's MacWorld, the MacBook Air is the world's thinnest notebook on the market. Perfect for that long flight, presenting to clients or just lazing on the sofa. What better way to show how we "cair" about our membership than offering you the chance to win this great piece of technology.
Enhance your chance to win!
We love to reward our members, especially those that are part of our community for the long haul and so we will be extending your chance to win this Macbook. All members whose membership is current from January through July 2008 will automatically receive an extra entry in the drawing for each month. That's 7 times the chances to win. And if that is not enough there will be more opportunities for extra entries at DevCon. *
I'm a member now. Do I have to do anything?
Our systems know when you joined and when your membership expires. As long as you don't let it lapse between now and DevCon you are golden. This is how much we love ya!
I'm not a member yet.
If you are not a member yet, you have no time to lose. You can Join the FMPug network today from only $99 for a virtual membership and not only get the opportunity to win this great Macbook Air but also get instant access to all the benefits and perks that FMPug offers. Right now we are busy working on the new FMPug web site which is being completely rewritten from the ground up using FileMaker Server 9 Advanced to power it and coded one piece of PHP at a time using the new FileMaker PHP API.
This rewrite is bringing a host of enhanced and new benefits to our membership and visitors alike.
Some of the member benefits include;
* More discounts for members to take advantage of (online and at DevCon)
* Download videos of meeting presentations for all members, chapter and virtual alike
* Reviews by the community. If you review it... you keep it!
* Meeting attendees listed on each and every desktop - courtesy of SeedCode Calendar Complete (it's like evite for FileMaker geek's!)
* Enhanced web listings for members
* RealTech - the FMPug mailing list where the best and the brightest hang out to talk about FileMaker. All Day & Night Long!
And all this using FileMaker as the driving power. We are serious about eating our own dog-food around here!
We look forward to seeing many old and new faces at DevCon 2008. And trust us when we say this is just the tip of the iceberg. We have lots more in store before DevCon rolls around.
