Session Description

Plug your custom app into the power of the Internet!


It’s easier than you might think to connect your custom app to the ever-growing network of connected devices and services in the Internet of Things.


By engaging automation tools such as Zapier.com and IFTTT.com, we will set up a gateway app on the FileMaker Platform, implementing automation routines that trigger events in other web software and web-connected devices.
