Session Description

The FileMaker Data REST API offers a new level of integration with our web sites. But many of us have a large portfolio of custom web pages written in PHP or other technologies based on the CWP web publishing engine. In this session we will discuss the differences between these two technologies. We’ll demonstrate techniques to both create new PHP pages, and to migrate your existing PHP pages to use the new FileMaker Data API. We will use our freely available PHP Class to streamline REST calls. We’ll also discuss options available to bypass PHP all together using a combination of HTML5 and JavaScript.
