About the Author

Bob Bowers is CEO of Soliant Consulting, a 50-person firm that specializes in custom

database and web application development. He is a recipient of the FileMaker Excellence

Award and has co-authored seven books on FileMaker Pro development. In 2008 he was

inducted into the Chicago Area Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame. After graduating summa

cum laude in Music and English from Wabash College, Bob earned a master’s degree in

Musicology from the University of Chicago. Bob is also a proud dad of two young children,

an avid banjo player, and an accomplished woodworker.

 

Dawn Heady, a Senior Technical Project Lead for Soliant Consulting, has 20-plus years of

FileMaker solution architecting experience during which time she’s also been a successful

business owner, served as a CIO in the credit restoration industry, and as Vice President of

a company specializing in FileMaker plug-ins. She is an authorized FileMaker Training

Series instructor, a regular speaker at the annual FileMaker Developer Conference and

FileMaker webinars, and a contributor to the FileMaker Newsletter. In 2004 FileMaker

selected Dawn as a FileMaker 7 Idol finalist for her Interface-RAD solution. Dawn is an

avid fan of the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Fever, loves to dote on her grandchildren,

loving husband.

FileMaker Training Series. He regularly speaks at the annual FileMaker Developer

Conference where in 2003 he was awarded the FileMaker Excellence Award for “pushing

the boundaries of FileMaker Pro.” When not writing about technology, Steve is likely to

be found being chased about by his children or grumbling over the fingerings of J. S.

Bach. Or just grumbling.

as an online managing editor, served at Apple Computer as its web publishing technology

evangelist, and led the technical marketing team at Macromedia. He has written dozens

gardening can be indulged year round.

It's well arranged and looks to be very thorough.

This edition adds information about which features became available with which FileMaker version, which is especially useful to me.

I am an intermediate developer. That means I can 'get the job done' but not as efficiently if I knew a few 'tips and tricks'. This book is fantastic. It presents some pretty basic stuff, (like what is a layout) but also goes into intermediate topics like creating multi table relationships between table occurrences.

This book is 'new best friend' when I need a FMaker reference.

This reference is full of useful information organized in a way that it is easy to find and use. Believe it or not, this volume is better than the previous developer reference for FM version 9. This book is essential for any serious FileMaker developer. My only regret is that the binding doesn't allow the book to lay flat on a desk. It really takes two hands to thumb through the pages. I just wish it could lay flat on the desk and allow my hands to do FM development on the keyboard.

Better than FM's built-in Help. It won't teach you HOW to make FM programs, but it will give you that detailed knowledge about particulars.

This is a really awesome book. I'm in the process of developing our company's database, and this book has helped me take it from a simple solution of stored data to highly functional. I'm able to perform many aspects of my job so much better and more efficiently because of the stuff this book has helped me learn.

This is a reference, not a page turner narrative. There are other books for that. This is for finding out or refreshing yourself on how all the functions and scripts work.

Definitions, explanations, and examples of every function in Filemaker. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I couldn't get along without the FileMaker 9 version of this book. Now the FileMaker Pro 12 version adds mini-primers, XML and External SQL Sources (ESS) information, Applescript integration, and more. This edition adds information about which features became available with which FileMaker version, which is especially useful to me.
The book is organized in a manner that makes it easy and fast to look up syntax and parameters of script steps, calculation functions, and other FileMaker features.

I'm really enjoying the book and associated software. It definitely covers more than the Filemaker documentation, in a very well alid out, very user-friendly format that gives you the opportunity to get in-synch with the product if you are new to it.

Highly Recommend.

It's a good reference. It's well arranged and looks to be very thorough.
I'll be using it to find better ways of coding my next DB.

I'm too early in to it to give it five stars, but so far I like the flow of the instruction and think that it will help close some of my gaps in understanding Filemaker 12; specifically, how to develop it for use in my small business.

cabotcomponents.com -- shameless plug.
