    FileMaker 19 - A Revolution in the Making

    John Mark Osborne and Michael Rocharde are proud to release a special 2 hour episode discussing the release of FileMaker 19 and what it means for Claris, the developer community and ultimately its customers. At first glance, there doesn't appear to be all that much that is new. But, a closer look reveals a version that is about to revolutionize the way FileMaker solutions are developed. With our regular guest, Marc Larochelle of Productive Computing, we discuss every aspect of the FileMaker 19 release.Interesting and Useful LinksMarc Larochelle - Productive Computinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=lwN_Tp5iOEs&feature=emb_logoMatt Petrowsky - ISO Productionshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=6&v=T3dgfugxcBI&feature=emb_logoRichard Carlton - Richard Carlton Consultinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=9&v=kRDXfpMrjvM&feature=emb_logoSoliant Consultinghttps://www.soliantconsulting.com/blog/javascript-filemaker-start/DB Services - Creating Add-Onshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=s9hUY7BgI1w&feature=emb_logoSoliant Consulting - Wim Decorte on Machine Learninghttps://www.soliantconsulting.com/blog/machine-learning-models-filemaker/Soliant Consulting - Wim Decorte on NFChttps://www.soliantconsulting.com/blog/nfc-scanning-filemaker-go/DB Services on the new FileMaker solution upgrade toolhttps://dbservices.com/articles/filemaker-solution-upgrade-tool/

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    In this episode, John Mark and I discuss all the 179 script steps in FileMaker 18. We tell you which ones you should know intimately and which ones you should avoid using. It's a lengthy topic and this is Part 1 of 2 parts;' the second part will be released on April 23.A mea culpa from Michael Rocharde.Apologies to all our listeners for the long delay between episodes; it's completely my fault but there are, of course, extenuating circumstance including a move to Spain (took almost 2 weeks to recover from the jet lag and exhaustion) and being placed in lockdown two days after arriving. We'll now be back on our normal schedule but releasing a new podcast every 3 weeks, instead of every 2).A special thanks to all who wrote and asked when we were releasing a new episode.

    Working with Client Solutions

    Working with Client Solutions

    In this podcast we are once again joined by Marc Larochelle, President of Productive Computing, for a far-reaching, and absolutely fascinating, conversation about data migration, the Separation model (we get Marc's insights and opinion on this subject so its not just a rehash of stuff we've already talked about), live updates (working on a live copy of the database at the same time as other users are working on it), syncing and some different ways of implementing it, setting developer flags on new scripts for testing; having separate servers for development, testing and production, using a terminal server (remote machine) to perform tasks locally where it would take too long to do it over a WAN and finally performing scripts on servers.

FMJunkie ,

I love it- Great title and subject. More please!

More episodes like this. Being told what not to do and why not is very valuable. Please do more like this. The format works despite the fact that JMO always sounds vaguely irritated and on the verge of running out of breath before finishing any sentence & Michael always speaks so slowly, precisely, and anal retentively, I wanna shout out, “Just spit it out now, old boy.” But somehow, it works....especially with STELLAR guests like Productive Computing.

This Space Cadet finally found mentors

It's hard to find quality mentors that will joust and spar with each talking about the ins and outs of FileMaker. Thank you guys for the great discussions. I'm just a fledgling FileMaker guy with just a little experience in FileMaker work. I'm grateful for the topics and revealing the power of FileMaker. Keep up the solid work! Thanks!

Extremely refreshing

These guys play a nice verbal tennis match and span a great tent of FileNaker topics over their audience! Bravo!!
