Happy Holidays, all you groovy developers!

DIGFM's 2018 year is coming to a productive close, and we have a lot to look forward in 2019.


December 13 at 2PM PST, in Santa Clara, California and online:

316.pngVince Menanno will be sharing what sounds like two messages of holiday cheer and end-of-year introspection: "Being an Optimist in a Pessimistic World" and "Inspector", but rest assured, they are presentations that will make A Wonderful Life out of your FileMaker development. Follow this link to RSVP, for further details, and to begin discussion of these topics:velocimeter-99391bf8dc23112ce69976cc4ce13b174d44dc70bb448130d1ae368ecbeb96dd.png
DIGFM: Being an Optimist in a Pessimistic World! +Inspector 7.0 (12/13/2018; Santa Clara, CA)


It's a Wonderful Lineup starting off 2019 as well:


  • January: Kevin Miller reprises his role as the King of Scots, in the sequel to a programming language blockbuster, Leveraging LiveCode II.

  • February: Tony White, will broadcast to us "live from New York City", on Valentine's Day—probably something to "Deepen your relationship... with the FileMaker Platform".



Speaking of lineups, here's as thorough a FileMaker user group lineup as you'll ever see, going all the way back to 2008: DIGFM Presentation History


Also for 2019, if you got on our mailing list with an RSVP, I'll be updating and customizing our mailings with 360Works' FileMaker Email Plugin. If you have any suggestions how to make best use of this plugin, please let me know.


By the way, DIGFM now has a DIGFM YouTube Channel—partly out of necessity since the Community Roadmap warns us to stop storing video directly in the FileMaker Community. It's the first time I ever set one of these up. So let me know if you have helpful (and simple) hints to improve the channel and its videos. I've already built a FileMaker Pro Advanced app called YouTube Topic-Timestamp Tagger (YTTTT), to help us take advantage of YouTube's timestamp links and auto-generated subtitle transcripts. Check it out.


And finally, as you're relaxing during your vacation—contemplating Peace and Goodwill—feel free to engage in our Meme War for the Holidaze, 2018.


Peace and Goodwill to you all,
