You should probably consider going for a Certified FileMaker Developer. If you want to work with someone i Denmark I can recommend one of those.
Junior i Århus, Michael Junior.
Datamanix in Herning, Claus Lavendt
ZorDesign in Copenhagen, André Just Vedgren.
Codeo Aps in Copenhagen (where I work with a team of FileMaker Developers).
But there are more then those to choose from. Those who are members of the FBA and Certified can bee seen on this list:
Those that are just members of the FBA: FileMaker Consultants
Thanks for the quick reply, nice with local consultants. I'm not shure we can/will go with a Danish firm, the prices are often very high and the budget i very low ...we where hoping to make a FM app our selfs to keep expences down, but we aren't good enough
Then I can strongly recommend a combination:
- Get help and discussion about how to build the solution here at the FileMaker community.
- Go directly to the FileMaker Training Series (link at the bottom). Strongly recommended!
Consider starting building a test system and then when you have some experience and have read/learned about conventions and best practice you can start building the real solution.
Do you have previous database experience and/or knowledge of general relational models (ERD) etc?
Would be good to know more before giving you advice sending you in the wrong direction.
There's also another method would be doing the development as you plan, but have a good experienced FileMaker developer mentoring/coaching your project. Maybe at a fixed number of hours per quarter or what you find relevant.
Og du er også velkommen til at ringe og få en snak om hvordan I kan gribe det an, sådan lidt overordnet. Jeg har en meget travl uge, men fx mandag eftermiddag ca. kl. 16 på 2371 0146. Jeg er også sikker på at hvis du spørger en af de andre udviklere fra de lister jeg viste, så er det ikke usandsynligt de også er helt med på en uforpligtende snak.
Imorgen er jeg selv til undervisning frem til kl 17.
I fooled arround with asp classic some 4 years ago, and db work is limited to MS Access, mySQL and a bit with msSQL.
With general SQL background as you mention I guess that you are OK with relational theory and how to write ER diagrams etc.
ERD are just as essential for FileMaker development as with any other databases, but when building your database I ssstttrrrooonnnggglllyyy advice that you should have a look at conventions, at the separation model and at the Anchor Bouy model before going to far.
And some other sources:
Du er velkommen efter 17 og inden 22:-)
Jeg synes det er fint at vi tager det generelle på engelsk her, så kan andre også få nytte af det og du kan få meget mere respons fra andre.
Data separation has its advantages, but if your solution is not being used heavily on a daily basis it maybe reasonable to stay with a single file and still effect regular design changes without much issue.
Any decision should start with looking first at the deployment (FMS / iPad only /iPad+Pro) and device connection & speed(LAN/WAN).
There's a product called Trainer.crm from a developer here in the UK, Cutting Edge Software, that enables training companies to manage their training courses, attendees, scheduling etc. Here's the Trainer.crm web page.
Thanks, I do also feel that it would be enough with an local single file system instead of an server at the moment.
I sent you an email.
Yes well it all sound right but there are no demo videos or screenshots ...also I do think we would need something more and something "less" then that solution.
I will get back to you later this week
