Hello all,


I'll keep my question short. How many of you have quit doing FileMaker development to try out another programming language or environment, but then returned to FileMaker because you preferred it? The majority of my career has been in FileMaker development, but it's easy to look at other languages like Java, PHP or C# as superior because of their flexibility and power. However, the grind of coding in those languages seems very tedious. Learning those other languages is appealing because of their opportunities, but I'm having a hard time giving up the simplicity of FileMaker. What has made you stick with FileMaker or come back to it later? Do you ever regret not learning a full programming language?
