Craft of FileMaker, The Design Studio

In case you missed it, Craft of FileMaker is running another Design Studio workshop this October 24-26, 2011 in New York City. If you have ever thought about learning a formal software user-experience design process, this is it. And, having actually taught these workshops with Don, you are going to be in for a really fun ride.

DevCon 2011 Recap

I had the tremendous privilege to speak again at FileMaker DevCon this year. In case you missed DevCon 2011, it was a heck of a show. 

I have said this before and I'll say it again, I am really excited about the future of Filemaker; not just because its technology continues to take us to new and important places but also because its community continues to elevate itself at an impressive rate.

It was great fun to catch up with everyone again. Kudos to all the speakers and attendees, and a special thanks to everyone who attended my panel and sessions:

DevCon 2011 Recap Part Deux

Just a quick note to thank everyone who filled out my session evaluations--your comments are invaluable and will help me make the next one even better (God(s) willing).

One more thing; I am planning on releasing the client-side form validation demo; hang tight, it may take me a couple of days to get to it! If you are desparate, email me ernest.koe[at] and i'll get you an advance copy.
