Today I presented the webinar “Maximizing Mobility with FileMaker Go”, hosted by FileMaker, Inc.‘s Rick Colcock. Thank you to all who attended; if you missed it or want to check it out again, you can download the video.
iPhones and iPads have changed the way people work with information. When developing solutions using FileMaker Go, you’ll want to design your workflows and user experience to fit the way people create and consume mobile data. This session will cover useful tips and techniques to optimize FileMaker for mobile use. We will explore FileMaker development with an eye to adapting workflow patterns and user interaction to the mobile paradigm, as well as the new opportunities mobile devices present, such as geolocation.
Several people asked how I was able to display the iPad screen on my desktop. I’ll have a new entry up later this week describing the process. Lastly, here are the useful links listed at the end of the presentation:
