If you are a user or developer of File Maker Pro and are located in the Washington, DC Metro area, please come to the DC File Maker User Group meeting today, February 3. It will be held at the FileMaker office at 700 12th Street NW downtown, from Noon until 2:00 PM. The meeting will feature special guests from eConnectix, who will be demonstrating their XFM FileMaker Server. In a real-world implementation at Tekserve in NYC, which has 160 simultaneous clients, 87 files, 15 million records, and 10 GB of data, the eConnectix box was able to reduce back-up times from three minutes to 0.65 seconds. This required no re-coding of the FileMaker Application. Additionally, Rosemary Tietge of FileMaker will be presenting on FileMaker Application Optimization and FileMaker Server optimization and best practices. To register, visit www.dcfilemaker.com.
If you can’t make the meeting in person, it will also be available via remote connection.
The DC FileMaker User Group meets the first Wednesday of the month at FileMaker’s office in Washington, DC. The next meeting of the user group is scheduled for Wednesday, March 3.
