    Session Description

    Design has become “A Thing.” Maybe too much so! Maybe way too self-conscious. How can we design without making it all about the design, and therefore about us? This session is full of fresh new FileMaker design work, using the latest version of FileMaker, that shows how to get it right, how to design so well that your clients don’t even have to think about what they’re doing. We will also focus on the looming perils of overusing the latest goodies on the FileMaker Platform. When should we—and when shouldn’t we—use the shiny new features of FileMaker?
