Philly FileMaker Meetup - Tim Lynott on FileMaker and PHP

Note: Pizza is provided at the end of the presentation, around 7:15 PM.

FileMaker and PHP

Presenter: Tim Lynott

PHP is a powerful programming language. The FileMaker API for PHP extends the application for use as a backend database for the internet.

Taking advantage of that extension requires at least understanding the fundamentals of the language and the FM API. During this presentation Tim will demonstrate a way to prepare data for the web designer and insure that the two application can communicate.
