FileMaker releases FileMaker Training Series: Advanced for FileMaker 13

FileMaker, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of FileMaker Training Series: Advanced for FileMaker 13, low cost, in-depth training materials that help developers create FileMaker solutions that run on iPad, iPhone, Windows, Mac and the web. FileMaker Training Series: Advanced completes the company’s official self-paced training curriculum for the recently announced FileMaker 13 Platform.

FileMaker Training Series: Advanced provides in-depth coverage of development practices and techniques to help customers master the essentials of FileMaker 13 solution development. The training series is mainly for intermediate to advanced FileMaker developers, but it will also be useful to anyone who creates solutions and for those developers preparing to become a FileMaker 13 Certified Developer.

The FileMaker Training Series: Advanced has been completely restructured and formatted for improved ease of use. It incorporates callout tips for developing solutions to use on FileMaker Go for iPad and iPhone and on FileMaker WebDirect in a web browser. The series also comes with an entire module dedicated to interface design and includes tips on getting the most out of new features in FileMaker 13 such as styles and themes, new scripts, container field enhancements, database encryption and more.

The training series contains nine training modules consisting of 55 lessons and includes exercises, demos and step-by-step videos:

• Module 1: Introduction
• Module 2: Data
• Module 3: Interface
• Module 4: Solutions Logic: Calculations
• Module 5: Solutions Logic: Scripting
• Module 6: Reporting
• Module 7: Security

    1. The MDN app has an issue for me with not always clearing the blue dot after reading an article, but that’s about it. I’d guess something’s amiss with your iPad. As for your iPhone’s copy hanging, I’d check out your Internet connection.

      The new MDN app is working pretty well for me on my iPad Air running iOS 7.1.
