At this year’s DevCon, it will be presented as a Pre-Conference session, and will be offered for an additional fee of $149.00. But you can see the preview in Phoenix for FREE!

Here’s the official session description from FileMaker’s website:

In Part 2 of this 2-part session, we will introduce some more advanced relational design concepts. We’ll show you how to create multiple Table Occurrences from the same Base Table.  We’ll discuss Referential Integrity, cascading deletes, multiple-predicate relationships and Cartesian Joins. To help you keep your relationships clear, we’ll discuss some Table Occurrence naming conventions and we’ll introduce you to the concept of Anchor-Buoy design, which allows even very complex graphs to be highly readable and easy to manage.
