Pause On Error, the FileMaker development unconference series that started back in 2009 as a way to bring FileMaker developers and enthusiasts together for a couple intense days of sharing, discussion and feedback, is heading over the big pond (or Atlantic Ocean rather) for an event in London on October 20 and 21. Pause[x]London is the first in a new approach to the unconferences. The steering committee is licensing the concept to anyone interested in hosting their own version of Pause On Error. The idea remains the same, though. The event is self-organized and free to attendees (limit 100), with the help of some nice donors/sponsors.
Pause[x]London will be trying another new concept: speaking via Skype. Our good buddy, Mark Richman, from Skeleton Key in St. Louis will be leading a session on (what else?) WAN performance. Only he’ll be doing it in his fuzzy slippers from the comforts of his digs in St. Louis. We’ll be keeping our eye on this, as this brave new session style could mean great things for future Pause events AND user groups like the Philadelphia FileMaker User Group.
If you can make it to Pause[x]London, do yourself a favor and get there. The Pause On Error events are a great way to build community around FileMaker development and get access to some of the best minds in the business.
