It seems as though every major solution hosts a conference for those who use it. FileMaker is no different.
The annual FileMaker Developers Conference was announced for July 28 through 31 at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa in San Antonio, Texas. An estimated 1,200 enthusiasts and 45 speakers from 27 countries will be in attendance.
According to a recent press release, those who have yet to register for the event only have until June 3 to do so for "early bird" pricing which will save $300 off of registration. The full conference fee is $1,595 for standard and $2,195 for the gold package.
"Attendees can choose from a wide variety of sessions on user-centric design and development for mobile devices, FileMaker WebDirect, performance, security, relational design, in-house development, integration with trending technologies and other new FileMaker 13 features," the release reads.
The event will also feature the DevCon Developer Cup competition where contestants can develop solutions to specific challenges for prizes. There will also be the "Visionary Bar" and "Tech Support Central" when FileMaker users and developers can meet with experts to troubleshoot problems and find answers to specific questions with the help of technical support agents.
Back in March, we went more in depth into the announcement of the 2014 developers conference and everything that will be available for those that attend. This includes the various tracks that business can follow to expand their knowledge of FileMaker in seven different ways.
The release also features comments by Ryan Rosenberg, the vice president of marketing and services at FileMaker. He said that regardless of whether you are a developer for yourself, a company or particular client, the conference provides those who attend with an insight into creating new, impactful solutions.
"The tech world is changing and FileMaker is too," Rosenberg said. "This conference ensures you are up to speed with the latest techniques in mobile applications, solution design and solution architecture. If you are looking to grow – or kick-start – a FileMaker development career, then DevCon 2014 is the place to be."
FileMaker is growing in popularity and those who attend the conference are positioning themselves at the forefront of the FileMaker solution providers. They will come out with ways to remain on the cutting edge of the solution and provide quality systems that businesses are looking for.
