Bootcamp for FileMaker began as an annual event, held at the home of Jonn Howell, in Ventura County, California. Jonn invited many of his friends and colleagues in the industry to share their knowledge, insights and techniques with each other. During the holiday times, when many large businesses slow for the end of the business year, there is a window of time when software developers can gather to grow their skills, build friendships, and just step out of their daily routines, in an environment of supportive peers and industry leaders.
Bootcamp for FileMaker is designed for everyone. All levels of skill and experience are welcome! We cover the broad scope of development at deep levels, which no other educational intensive can offer. This is not just a skill training, it is an educational intensive. We often find that beginners and seasoned developers alike discover that their lives have been changed by this event. As developers, we often find ourselves working in an isolated environment, and we miss the opportunity to gain insights and knowledge from our colleagues. If you want to polish your business analysis and project management skills for working in a FileMaker-centric business environment, this IS the place! Please see the "Testimonials" page for personal reviews.
Designed to happen at the opposite Solstice of the FileMaker Developers Conference, Bootcamp for FileMaker is a supplement to the Developers Conference and The Professional Training Series. We actively encourage attendance to all these events! Last year, a Bootcamp attendee expressed the desire to speak at the FileMaker Developers Conference, and we helped make that happen! We cover material that is not covered in other events anywhere in the FileMaker community. While this event is for the FileMaker-centric developer, much of the material covered at Bootcamp for FileMaker is designed to work in any software environment, independent of product advocacy. The pace is intense and rich. The days are long, with frequent breaks. This is indeed a "bootcamp" environment, in the sense that it is an intensive learning environment for three+ days. The subject matter has grown and the agenda refined. This will be the fifth year of Bootcamp, and this will be the biggest yet!
A limited number of scholarship discounts are available for those who qualify.
Don't let money prevent you from attending the best educational event in the FileMaker Community!
See you there!
