    FileMaker Pro 13 Video Course… Released...

    richardcarlton

      I am happy to release our FM Pro 13 Video Training Course. Our new FM Pro Video Training Course is already 14 hours and is growing every week. We are actively adding new videos to it, and expect it to be approx 20 hours in length when it is complete.

       

      I have worked hard to keep this training as dynamic and exciting as possible, while offering instruction in basic, intermediate and advanced FileMaker development skills. I am using my experience as a long time speaker at FileMaker's Developer conferences, and other FileMaker events, to keep the training focused on the issues most likely to confuse new and intermiedate developers. Unlike a generic FileMaker Pro Training course, my training course also has one eye focused on customizing your own FREE copy of FM Starting Point. New Videos are being added to this course weekly, and we expect more than 20 hours of total content! Take Advantage of our limited time offer: One time Purchase $39.99
