FMPug is launching its annual “12 Days of Giveaways” in about 6 days:
Now’s a pretty good time to support what FMPug does for the developer/user group community at large and for our own local group.
For the Philly FileMaker group, FMPug provides:
- Meeting Announcement Listings and management
- Meeting RSVP services
- Mailing List Management
- Product discounts for FMPug members
- Pawfolio pages with work samples for FMPug members
- and a percentage of every FMPug member’s annual fee goes directly to support PhillyFileMaker.
In a more general sense, FMPug provides a sense of community and cohesion to the dozens of user groups scattered around the world. It provides us opportunities to share with each other and learn from each other outside of conventions and conferences. I know I’ve cribbed many ideas for user group sessions from looking into the Schedule to see what other people are up to, and have often learned about new techniques in the pipeline before they make it into a DevCon presentation just by poking around the FMPug site. It’s also an excellent way to get your feet wet before jumping into your first FileMaker DevCon. Andy Gaunt is a great resource and asset to the community.
Why join now? Well, the “12 Days of Giveaways” event is a big one – tons of free products from your favorite FM vendors means you stand a very very good chance of winning something – which would more than cover the cost of an annual FMPug membership (if the discounts weren’t already enough).
So head on over to FMPug and join or renew today!
For those of you who attended Anthony Celini’s presentation back in June 2009 (Case Study: FileMaker’s ROI for Oncology Services International), FileMaker Inc. has posted a Customer Story on the project:
“FileMaker 10 helps OSI double growth while cutting costs”
Congrats to OSI and Tony. For those who didn’t attend our meeting, this was a great integration case study, using NMCI’s Genesis Accounting product and WorldSync SyncDek with FileMaker.
