From FileMaker to App Store Step by Step
I was a guest of Richard Carlton’s live stream 5 days in a row to explain, step-by-step, how to build a native app from a FileMaker database, and how to distribute it to iPhone and iPad devices, with and without using the App Store. Here’s a list of all the topics discusse with direct links to the corresponding moment in each recording.
Xgode 2.0 on Steroids
According to our customers. Xgode is the best and easiest to use way to build and push mobile apps made in FileMaker to the users. Now version 2.0, faster, with more controls and better support for the App Store, has been deployed and is ready for you to try out!
Christmas Lights Automated with FileMaker and Raspberry Pi
Some people control Christmas lights by plugging them in and unplugging them every day. Then there are those who will control them in some other way, for example using FileMaker. Milan belongs to the second group and he likes to automate repetitive tasks. That’s why FileMaker has been controlling his Christmas lights for the second year in a row.
Pond powered by FileMaker and Raspberry Pi

Another FileMaker Konferenz is over and it has been great again
This year, hosted in Hamburg, Germany, over 180 German-speaking FileMaker developers came to this local conference to learn something new and get inspired. The atmosphere of the 3-day conference was very friendly and forward looking, as, how we already learned during the past 3 years, FileMaker Konferenz always tends to be.
24U at DevCon 2019
Our team crossed the ocean again to show our skills and upgraded demo at the FileMaker Developer Conference, which took place in Orlando, Florida. We answered a lot of questions about FileMaker and we discussed every problem our customers came with.
Life before and after Xgode
We can build native iOS apps with the FileMaker platform but we struggled doing that too often. Xgode has changed this for us, and now it is not an exception when we build a FileMaker based native app more than five times on the same day. Why is the life after Xgode so different from the life before it?
Tamagotchi - Ready for the Future
Several years ago, when Tamagotchi became popular, I thought it was a good way to teach a kid how to take care of a pet, without an actual risk of hurting or killing one. Back at that time I had no idea that the meaning of this toy was much deeper...
First Lessons from Developing for FileMaker Go
In the old times before FileMaker Go, before tab control, before anchors, before multiple windows per file, in the age of 13-inch CRT monitors, the most frequent challenges I was facing when developing FileMaker solutions were how to fit all the necessary information and what to put in empty area.
