This is the time of the year that our national tradition is to express our gratitude. Some of us are thankful for more transcendent things (you know who you are), and others are thankful for more material things, like the bounty that is hormone-fed poultry and the awesomeness that is big guys pounding each other on a field of battle for possession of a ball made from the skin of yet another sacrificial farm animal. To each his or her own. That’s what makes America great!

But, us? We are thankful for all the great people that have joined us this year in our frequent forays into the fundamentals of FileMaker. Good people, good times. Thanks!

This month we have a special presentation by Alan Bird on FileMaker Cloud. Initial response to this new product in FileMaker’s deployment line-up has been guarded because there are still some of the more advanced uses for FileMaker that are simply not supported by it (no Custom Web Publishing with PHP, for instance).

What has become clear, however, is that FileMaker Cloud makes FileMaker Server way more accessible to the casual to intermediate non-technical user than ever before. What you get is most of the huge advantages of using FMS, and next to none of the hassle of buying all the hardware and software and security certificates, and setting it all up so that it works smoothly and correctly.

It is so simple that Alan would like to show you how now anyone can afford, and is able, to take advantage of FileMaker Server as much, or as little as they’d like. (Yes, you can now rent a totally decked-out FileMaker server by the hour! Great for testing or sperimentin’!)

Learn about this game-changing approach to FileMaker hosting this Tuesday. You won’t want to miss it.

As usual, we will round out the program with a discussion of one or more specific FileMaker subjects and have time for open discussion of all things FileMaker, and some things tech.

No matter whether you have never played with FileMaker Server at all or are an old hand at it, you will learn something in this meeting.

See you Tuesday!
