They will be demonstrating the latest version for desktop, iOS and web deployments. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to talk directly to the FileMaker Product Management team and ask questions.

Here are some of the big features of 13:
• FileMaker Go: Barcode scanner, native iOS controls, custom keyboards, slide control
• WebDirect (replaces IWP): deliver FileMaker solutions to web clients
• User Interface: Custom themes, Popovers, Field Picker
• Server: New admin console, Perform script on server, streamlined uploading
• Security: Encryption at rest
• much more!

This will be a 1.75 hour meeting, and we will head out for a drink afterward. Note the new location in Downtown Portland. Meetings are free. Drinks and snacks are provided by MSN Media and

    We had almost 50 people in attendance at this meeting. In the 15 years I've been running the FileMaker developer group, that is a record. I think that alone says volumes about how this new version resonates.

      And perhaps a bit about how the user group has responded to your shepherding. Thanks!

    Thanks Matt for the new space and time/date - I suspect that will increase attendance again. I think next time us northern folks might park and ride and take Max in. I hope you all have a fantastic holiday!

    Too much time spent on whether or not several attendees were sold on Web Direct. Most of us were there to learn about new features, not to listen to almost 1/2 hour of justification over one feature that the vast majority in the room seemed to be happy with.

    Introduction and demonstration was rather well done. I was on the fence about FileMaker 13 versus FileMaker, and they sold me on FileMaker 13. I was a little disappointed by the łack of technical information that was available, however, from the FileMaker presenters.

    There are several parking lots (and bars) within a block or three away, and it's also right on the Max line. I'll provide a more detail report in the next week.

    If anyone wants to park (free) at Lloyd Center and carpool from there, let me know.

    Matt, have you scoped the parking situation?

    Really Important Changes!!! The meeting location is now in Downtown Portland, and the meeting is now at 6PM, which will hopefully open it up to more people.

    This should be great. WAN isn't a big deal for us, but performance tuning is.
