FileMaker, Inc. has unveiled an all-new free training series for the recently announced FileMaker 13 Platform. FileMaker Training Series: Basics is designed to help everyone learn to build professional custom business solutions that run on Mac OS X, iOS, Windows, Mac and the web.
The new training series is offered in iBook format for easy use on iPads and iPhones. A PDF version is also available. According to Ryan Rosenberg, vice president of marketing and services for FileMaker, Inc., FileMaker 13 users now have a broad range of training options to get started and become productive, while building the skills to make powerful solutions.
The Getting Started Tours guide users through the key features of FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go. The tours are automatically installed with the software — simply download a trial of FileMaker Pro 13 or download FileMaker Go 13 for iPhone or iPad from the App Store.
FileMaker Training Series: Basics, a brand new addition to the FileMaker Training Series, builds on FileMaker’s Getting Started Tours and introduces users to the fundamentals of creating and deploying custom business solutions.
