Session Description

This session will explore best practices and enhanced development techniques that lead to clean and compact FileMaker code, while improving the functioning and efficiency of the resulting solutions. The techniques under discussion lead to greater quality and control, with reduced potential for file corruption or solution integrity problems. Best practices for file management and the design and coding of FileMaker solutions will be discussed, along with techniques involving the use of FileMaker-based developer tools, utilities and test environments as a standard part of development, version management and deployment processes.
