Like all good things in life, this group is a work in progress.
Feedback and ideas are encouraged.
The Philadelphia FileMaker User Group held its first meeting May 27, 2004. We meet the 4th Tuesday of every month at 6PM, in the office of IT Solutions Consulting, Inc. It’s at 414 Commerce Drive, Suite 150, Fort Washington PA if you’re in the area and want to drop by.
You can subscribe to our Mailing List to get announcements on upcoming meetings. The list is set to Announce only, so you will only get emails from us – and volume is between one and 2 emails a month typically.
We’re an official FMPug Chapter. FMPug is an international association of FileMaker Pro User Groups; more information can be found at:
We are also a Peachpit User Group chapter and an Apple User Group chapter.
The group was founded in 2004 as an initiative by IT Solutions to provide an open forum for FileMaker developers and those interested in FileMaker to meet, brainstorm and network. Jim Higgins, then the VP of Application Development at IT Solutions, was the first Coordinator of the group.
Jason Mundok took over the management of the group shortly thereafter and steered it through December 2007. In that time he also kicked off the Central Pennsylvania FileMaker Developer Group. Colin Keefe picked up the PFUG reins in January 2008. He’s currently a Project Manager for IT Solutions Consulting, Inc.
Around 2010 we changed our name from the Philadelphia FileMaker Developer Group to the Philly FileMaker User Group, to make clear that we’re a group truly open to all skill levels and interests.
Over the course of eight years, we’ve had a rolling, changing membership as people drop in and out. Currently our monthly meeting attendance hovers around 21 on average, from a core base of about 50 regular attendees. New faces, regardless of skill level, are most welcome and encouraged.
