Session Description

FileMaker Go 12 is a full-fledged FileMaker client and can generally run any FileMaker Pro 12 database. Nevertheless, you can greatly improve your users' experience by designing work-flows that you optimize for the touch interface. During this session we'll delve into design considerations for optimizing performance and usability of systems refined for FileMaker Go. We'll explore the four basic architectural models for FileMaker Go solutions and how to determining which to deploy. We'll look at the four methods for deploying a FileMaker file to the iOS device and weigh the merits of each. Finally, we will discuss sync strategies when it is necessary to move data between FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go. The solution will include a fully unlocked demonstration file.
