Session Description

This is a technical session aimed predominantly at intermediate and advanced level developers who would like to build dashboards, scorecards, analytical reports, dynamic charts and dynamic tables with FileMaker. The 60 tips and tricks will be delivered as part of an end-to-end process effectively showing participants how to build a purely FileMaker dashboard from scratch. We will explore concepts like multi-dimensional schemas (star and snowflake), cubes, data warehouses, real-time collaboration and pivot summaries (using standard FileMaker tools without plug-ins or third party software). And my personal favorite: adding voice recognition to your app with Siri!

What you should know

No prior knowledge is required; however, the session will probably be most interesting for people with intermediate FileMaker skills and above.
