Developed FMP REST backend for mobile: How to introduce?

I'm sorry if being off-topic, also as my question isn't technical - but couldn't think of a better way or place to ask this...



We have developed a versatile FMP based platform for mobile apps backend, and want to reach out to the FMP community in search of cooperation & advice. Ideas welcome.


appUgo is an Israeli software house, very experienced with Filemaker since version 1.0. Being also quite involved in the local startup scene, we came to an understanding that if the app's backend - typically accessed via REST API and developed using tools such as Node.js or PHP - could be developed in Filemaker, dev cost and time will be reduced drastically.


During the last two years we were developing this idea, starting with FMP go based Apps prototypes. Currently, based on appUgo recently launched KMIT technology, we are offering full FMP based app backends, including a custom made REST API. Pls note: our backends provides not merely REST access to FMP, but a truly full server, wrapping FMP db and logics strength behind a custom made API - and doing so without compromising FMP's unparalleled development speed.


And now to the question: as said, we are rolling out quite a technology based on FMP,  that even in it's ver 1.0 enables appUgo to offer fully functioning backend for apps in a fraction of current time and cost. There is no active FMP community in Israel, and we have not connections to the U.S. & worldwide community - our natural target when seeking cooperations and advice. What would be the best practice to connect with FMP related people and companies? Forums beside this one, blogs to reach out to? Does Filemaker itself help in promoting such technologies? Any ideas or connections will be most highly appreciated (:


Many thanks
