Training day for MBS Filemaker Plugin

The people at are hosting a training for our MBS Filemaker Plugin. So if you want to spend a day with us learning about our plugin, please join us.

We make a guided tour and show you a couple of highlights and examples. Talk about what you can do and how you do some things. Later we will implement a couple of things in sample databases like the Audit function. Also download and upload with CURL is a good topic. We will look into the webviewer extensions and fill a sample form. Next we will do some image editing and writing a report into a Excel file.
Finally we have plenty of time for questions.

This event is in German (english event is also possible).
We meet 8th May 2014 at 9:30 am in Denkform office. Cost is 70 Euro (+VAT) and you can buy a 5 seat license for additional 70 Euro (+VAT).
You can register on the denkform website. After the event, there is the regular meeting which everyone can join for free and have dinner with us.

Other dates for similar events are: 7th August 2014 and 6th November 2014.
