Bootcamp for FileMaker

Recommended Posts



Apply now for enrollment in the Annual Bootcamp for Filemaker Event Feb 15th-19th, 2010. Enrollment is limited and there are only a few seats left for this unique FileMaker experience.


What is Bootcamp? Bootcamp for FileMaker is a week long intensive immersion in FileMaker development. FileMaker Bootcamp was started 5 years ago as a homegrown, grassroots event where people could come and discuss the fundamentals of database development as it pertains to FileMaker. It is an opportunity to spend a concentrated period of time in an intensive learning environment filled with unique educational resources. Bootcamp offers a broad range of sessions that extend beyond simply learning how to use FileMaker as a tool. The concept of the Bootcamp event is to experience the System Development Lifecycle and put FileMaker into a larger context, while providing resources for a solid foundation of database development.


Who should attend? Bootcamp is appropriate for anyone from the power user who wants to learn more about development to the seasoned developer with 15+ years of experience.


Content: Basic Relational Design and Modeling, Data Normalization, Relational Graph Management, Business Analysis and Project Management, Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing, Scripting Methodologies and Script Triggers, Reporting, External SQL Sources, File Management, Database Security, Interface Design and Reporting, plus content requested by attendees.

Location: Westlake Village, CA


Enrollment: Limited enrollment to preserve the intimacy and intensity of the Bootcamp experience.


Registration: $1250, Breakfast and lunch are included. Dinner on Sunday and Friday is included, as well. FileMaker will be hosting a dinner one night for all attendees. Day rates are available @ $250/day.


Hotel Arrangements: A room package has been arranged with the recently remodeled Hyatt Westlake Plaza in Thousand Oaks. Rooms are $99 per night, single or double occupancy at one rate, and feature luxurious pillow-top beds. The hotel is located in the same parking lot as the Pepperdine campus, and will be the location of evening case study groups that will be coached by the Bootcamp staff.

Coming from the Mac world, where "Bootcamp" means "installation routine for installing Windows into your Intel-based Mac", I had all kinds of interesting things crossing my mind when I read the thread title. Hmm, emulate the Windows experience of FileMaker without needing a Windows environment, and vice versa for PC using FmPro developers?
