Hi all,


Since last year, I've heard from a few you of that you'd like to see more advanced and expert sessions at DevCon. I'm happy to let you know that this week a couple more FileMaker engineers have volunteered to give technical sessions:


  • Under the Hood: Maximizing FileMaker WebDirect Scalability
  • Under the Hood: PSR Benchmarking Methodology

I also thought it might be helpful if I highlighted some sessions that might be of interest to advanced developers. Please see the list below.


Finally, I've heard quite a lot of feedback that people need more business sessions. This year we have some really good ones, including a great Positioning talk from Jonathan Stark.


Cheers --




PS For those of you speaking at DevCon, if your session should (or shouldn't) be in this list, feel free to let me know.
