FileMaker DevCon heads to South Beach in 2012

Posted by Justin Hesser on March 12, 2012

FileMaker developers from all over will be taking their talents to South Beach this summer for the FileMaker Developer Conference 2012. This year's DevCon will be held this summer from July 16 to July 19 at Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami, Florida.

One of the greatest things about FileMaker is its enormous network of developers that work together to find new ways to take advantage of the versatile customization capabilities of the leading database software platform. The annual DevCon draws in over 1,100 FileMaker developers from more than 35 countries, according to a press release.

The convention is a four-day series of events where developers can bounce ideas off each other based on their own experiences, collaborate with other industry leaders, hone their developing skills and learn about new advancements in FileMaker programming.

This year, there will be more than 70 different sessions and workshops for attendees to check out. Because of the increased popularity of FileMaker Go, there will be an increased number of sessions related to custom application development.

In the meantime, Tri-State and New England-based FileMaker developers can check out the the Connecticut FileMaker Developer's Group that meets monthly to discuss industry news and learn about new techniques and uses for the software. The next two meetings will be held in the Student Center at Central Connecticut State College in New Britain, Connecticut from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. on March 28 and from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on April 18.

Businesses turn to FileMaker not only because of the program's versatility, but also because of the close-knit group of developers who work together to drive innovation and find new ways to take advantage of the leading database software program.
