Session Description

As the number of FileMaker apps served from the cloud continues to grow, developers absolutely must learn to design for WAN performance. What appears to work well during development may not perform well at scale, or when deployed into the blustery troposphere.


Join us as we review WAN performance basics and survey the landscape for techniques and tools that can give your WAN-based custom apps a performance boost!
