The FileMaker Developer Conference is coming up later this summer August 6-9 held at the Gaylord Texan Resort near Dallas, TX.

FileMaker DevCon (Developer Conference) 2018 2

Our team of LuminFire developers will be going to learn about the latest FileMaker and web development techniques and products. There will be several days with over 1,600 other developers from all around the world. We’ll interface directly with the engineers that build FileMaker to get the inside scoop on how things work and what the future holds.

We believe this conference is so vital that we’ve attended it faithfully for the last 16 years. We wouldn’t miss it for anything because it provides our clients and our team with so much value.

  • Seeing the HISTORY of FileMaker shows a consistent dedication to improving the product and building a solid platform to build on.
  • Seeing the PRESENT world of FileMaker makes it possible to utilize the best of breed products and technologies to make your business more effective.
  • Seeing the FUTURE of FileMaker helps us to make development plans that make the best use of your resources.

We recapped last years Devcon 2017 here. It was our first DevCon under our new LuminFire brand! We were the exhibitor with more attendees than any other company at DevCon. We also sponsored Women of FileMaker and had several speakers from our team talking about FileMaker WordPress integration via BrilliantSync.

If you have anything you’re contemplating in new technology related to your FileMaker custom apps or business, let us know and we’ll keep an eye out for it…be it big data, web integration, bar coding/RF ID tags, mobile apps on iPads/iPhone, or bionic leg control. 🙂

This year we will be back showcasing our latest WordPress FileMaker integration solutions at the conference. Stop by our booth for free tech assistance and advice.

One of the great things about DevCon is that it’s usually held somewhere extremely hot and sunny in the middle of the summer. That way, all the developers can work on their tans in between sessions.

For developers that would like to see the history of FileMaker and DevCon as well as keep track of their DevCon history, we’ve created a  FileMaker custom app to track all past events going back to the first “FileMaker DevCon” in 1996.
