series of special workshops featuring modules from the FileMaker Training
Series, the official curriculum of the FileMaker 9 product line. A number
of business development workshops, aimed at helping independent developers
increase their business opportunities, will also be offered.
“Last year’s FileMaker Developer Conference was one of our highest-rated
ever, with satisfaction ratings as high as 93 percent — and 94 percent of
participants said they could immediately apply what they had learned,” said

“Building on the success of last year, we are delivering more hands-on
technical and business development workshops than ever before, all of which
will have an immediate impact on developers’ skills and success.”
