October DIGFM Meeting

How Brittle Is Your Database?


Are there hidden "time bombs" in your solution that will require your efforts to fix when either user or developer initiated changes cause your solution to break instead of "bend"?


This talk looks at examples of brittle features commonly found in FileMaker solutions and discusses both the "mind set" that can lead to including such potential problems as well as techniques for building flexibility into your system.


Examples will range from "beginner" to "high intermediate".
