They’ll be staying at The Cosmopolitan, host hotel of more than 60 DevCon sessions. They will join over 1,500 FileMaker developers to network, catch up with colleagues and take advantage of the variety of session tracks including core, design, innovation, mobility, business & web, to further their knowledge with tips, best practices, and techniques to continue building powerful business solutions for our clients. Mark and Chad will have the honor to host three of these sessions. SESSIONS:

  • Mark will contribute to the business track in his session, Developing a Sales Process, on Tuesday, 7/19 at 10:45am. You’ll get the most from this session, if you believe that influencing others is part of your job, and that repeatable success depends to some degree on repeatable behavior.
  • Mark will also contribute to core track in his session, Designing for WAN Performance, on Wednesday, 7/20, 9:00am. To get the most out of this session, attendees should be familiar with most aspects of the FileMaker Platform (i.e. schema, security, structure, and business logic) and should have some experience deploying and administrating FileMaker Server.
  • Chad will contribute to core track in his session, Relationships Graph Techniques: Which is Best – and When? on Wednesday, 7/20, 3:45pm. To get the most out of this session, Attendees should have some experience building FileMaker custom apps and be familiar with the concept of FileMaker relationships and the Relationships Graph. Scripting experience will be helpful.


During the conference, small teams will demonstrate their creativity and expertise, competing in an informal hackathon to design simple-but-useful custom apps for three Las Vegas area nonprofits.
