Previously, I wrote about how to convert your solution away from the Classic theme. In this part, I discuss five FileMaker 14-exclusive changes you might want to make while updating your solution. These interface features will add professionalism, usability, and—dare I say?— “glory” to your solutions.
Over time, one collects bits and pieces of knowledge about different corners of development. Features that are a little more difficult to discover, or shortcuts that can help out in a pinch. Some of these nuggets can make developing faster, easier, or more accurate. Here are five helpful features you may or may not already know about, but which I’m thankful we have available.
Many of us who have been working in FileMaker for some time have solutions built on the Classic Theme. “Classic” sounds good, doesn’t it? Who wouldn’t want to build something “Classic?” Well, fellow FileMaker developers, in this case we do want to clear out that old classic, Classic Theme. In this article, find out about a 2-step process to update the meat of your layouts to something leaner, faster, and better-looking than the good old Classic solution you have today.
I had a great time presenting for the first time at DevCon on the Psychology of Interaction Design in Las Vegas. It was FileMaker’s 30th anniversary year, and the 20th DevCon as well.
I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be speaking at the 2015 FileMaker Developers’ Conference in Las Vegas for the first time, on the psychology of interaction design. In other words, what do we need to know about people in order to design effective applications?
The session will cover aspects of cognition, memory and learning, vision, and user testing, among other things. The goal of the session will be to help you see and correct potential problems in your design, so you can improve the experience for your users.
It’s been one year since I published the first article to the blog. (Yay!) Thank you to everyone who has read, shared, liked, followed, commented, submitted articles or shared resources to the blog in its first year. I’m so grateful, because without you, I’d just be talking to myself! And that’s just weird…
I’d love to learn more about my readers (that’s you!) so I’m taking this opportunity to ask if you’d share some of your thoughts with me in this short survey.
