Session Description

FileMaker has all the native tools you need to integrate with the world of Google—but where do you start? In this session we'll walk through the journey of integrating a simple FileMaker file with Google. We'll teach you how to setup your Google account for access, how to teach FileMaker the "secret handshake" (now you're in the club), and how to utilize Google's JSON responses in meaningful ways. We'll provide examples of integrating with the Google apps we have all come to know and use in our every day lives.

What you should know

Experience with the Insert from URL script step, REST APIs, cURL, and JSON.
