Greetings FileMaker Enthusiasts,

The meeting will be held at the IT Solutions Fort Washington Office:

As always, pizza and soft drinks will be provided.
Please RSVP here if you are planning to attend this meeting:
Extended Stump the Chump / Roundtable
Going forward, “Stump the Chump” is the kickoff segment of every meeting! If you have a problem you’d like to discuss with the group, or want to get feedback on alternative ways to code a particular bit of programming, please bring your laptop or flash drive loaded with the files.
One other change: going forward, we are ALL chumps. It was pretty much that way anyway, since thankfully folks are not shy to put their two cents in, but we might as well make it official and get rid of the “designated chumps” idea. So this is really an opportunity for free-ranging roundtable discussion of code.
Since we have a pretty open schedule this meeting, MORE IS BETTER. If you don’t have specific code to discuss, bring in talking points or a topic to bounce around.
PauseOnError UnConference: Jason Mundok’s first hand report
PauseOnError is an UnConference whose content and organization is entirely participant driven. The first POE UnConference was held last summer in Manhattan; we reported on it here:
The second one is happening in Portland OR next week – over 100 top-tier developers are converging to discuss just about everything you could imagine, and our own Jason Mundok will be there. He’ll be doing some of his “5 Minutes with Philly FileMaker” interviews, and will give us a report of his experiences.
