welcome to the big move!
This entry has been hiding in my personal area since DevCon .... it was a great question then, and now I know why it was ignored: nobody found it.
Hi there! I have been specifically looking for DevCon related conversations and didn't notice your original post until recently so maybe your response helped this get bumped up.
I think one reason you may not be getting a lot of replies here is that the information I'm guessing you're looking for was under NDA and we can't really talk about it. There were some great sessions and I noticed more track for business, project management and marketing. It was nice to see DevCon providing more of the non-technical tracks for business development folks like myself.
I'd be happy to answer any questions you have about DevCon but I didn't attend anything technical so I may not be able to provide the kind of info you're looking for.
Maybe FileMaker can in the future more align the DevCon with a release.
So they can announce the new FileMaker version there, provide details and have people talk about it?
I agree that alignment with DevCon would be nice, but please do NOT announce a new version at DevCon. They did that one year and it completely threw out any advanced planning participants had made because although the speakers were able to prepare for the new version, none of the conference materials could mention it. So session descriptions were either completely wrong, or so vague as to be useless.
Announce the new version enough time before DevCon to allow for planning and/or even deciding whether to attend.
