The 2002 FileMaker Developer Conference will be held Aug. 12-15 at the Desert Springs Marriott Resort & Spa, in Palm Desert, Calif., with the theme of “Information, Integration, and Innovation.”
Dominique Goupil, president of FileMaker, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Apple, expects the event to draw a record number of corporate and independent FileMaker database developers from over 25 countries. The conference will cover a range of issues on FileMaker’s emerging standards — including XML, Web services, SQL and JDBC — for low-cost integration with other workgroups, enterprise data and applications, he added. It’s sponsored by FileMaker, Inc. and Advisor Media, publishers of FileMaker Advisor Magazine.
Ron Schmelzer, founder and senior analyst of ZapThink and a well-known expert in the field of XML and XML-based standards and initiatives, will be one of the primary speakers. Goupil will also speak, as will other FileMaker execs, including: Bill Epling, chief financial officer; Chung Le, VP of product development; and Chris Trytten, director of product management.
Some of the technical sessions will include: Creating XSL style sheets with FileMaker Pro; Constructing a FileMaker Security & Privilege Management System; CDML vs. XML; FileMaker Pro: Web Services Client; Synchronizing FileMaker and SQL Server Database Systems Using ODBC; Managing Web Content with FileMaker and DreamWeaver; Integrating FileMaker Pro with Enterprise Systems Using XML; Mobile Data for Multi-User Databases; FileMaker Pro as a Business Management Tool; FileMaker Pro and Microsoft.NET Technology Overview; Citrix and Terminal Services Deployment with FileMaker Pro.
