Platinum FBA Members and # of Certified Developers

FileMaker 13 Certification test became available not too long ago (April 30th, 2014) and Devcon is upon us in a little over a week (July 28th) in San Antonio.

 

One of the things FileMaker does at Devcon is give each participant a lanyard name badge and they include little stickers on the bottom to show such things as where you are from. But one of the things that they include is if you are a current Certified FileMaker developer. It seems like a number of Devcon participants compete to have the most stickers including the Certified Developer sticker. The test hasn't been out all that long, but if you want to get tested and possibly be certified before Devcon, you have one more week to do it.

 

More info on certification is at:

But as a bit of a comparison (and maybe competition), I went through the list of FBA Platinum members under the Consultants tab on the FileMaker web site tonight (July 18th) and tallied up the number of certified developers by company. Maybe this will give some incentive among companies to get a few more certified developers, if possible before Devcon. Here are the numbers by company according to FileMaker's web site. If there are any errors, they may possibly be a typo. But if you believe it is wrong, look it up on the web site and talk with FileMaker if your company's count is wrong. Also, there were too many to look up all companies, so these are just the Platinum companies.

 

  • The average FBA Platinum company has 1.53 FM 13 Certified Developers.
  • There are 108 Platinum Companies with 165 Certified Developers.
  • 39 companies have no certified developers.
  • 32 have 2 or more certified developers.

In case you are asking why you might want certified, you do get better exposure by FileMaker Inc. in the Consultants tab if you are certified and an FBA member. It is also a good marketing sales point when pitching a project to a new client. And there are also secondary benefits. The ones that I pointedly benefit from are reduced insurance costs for General Liability Insurance and Errors & Omissions Insurance. And it sets you apart from other job applicants if you are looking for a FileMaker development job.
