Session Description

FileMaker’s graph allows bidirectional relationships, but most solutions do not take advantage of this powerful feature. In this session you'll revisit the unified graph while taking a deeper look at how to wield the inherent power that FileMaker provides via the bidirectional relationship.


You'll learn how to develop faster, how to get better performance out of your apps, and how to achieve smaller and simpler graphs. It will also describe how the context of these solutions can affect overall development.

What you should know

Comfortable with FileMaker’s relationship graph, relationships in general and the idea of context.
