Goodbye Salzburg

After two weeks of conferences I am on my way back home.
This was an exhausting, but also entertaining and very interesting time. I met a lot of people, had shop talk all day and developed new stuff on the fly.

The Dallas FileMaker user group moved their meeting date for me and over 20 users attended. Next in Houston I met about 100 Xojo developers at the yearly Xojo developer conference including all the Xojo staff. This week in Salzburg at the FileMaker Conference I met around 200 FileMaker developers from German speaking countries.

As usual I spend only a little time in sessions. More important for me is the time in the lobby where people show me their projects, explain what issues they have and what functions they'd like to have. I can show what features my plugins have, what may help the client and how we can proceed. Some people even have projects for me I could do and some are interested in personal consulting or training services.

As you may have noticed, I am coding in-between and writing blog articles. For Xojo I hoped for a 64-bit debugger sooner as I worked the last weeks on a CloudKit plugin. Still I hope to get it done and debugged in the next weeks, so you guys can try it.

For FileMaker we got a couple of news:
As usually if you see a feature in the other plugins and you like me to transfer it, please tell me. For a lot of features it makes sense to offer them for both. The styled text feature for DynaPDF is right away built for both tools. We had the Java classes in Xojo for ten years already and now added this functionality for FileMaker as well.

I am looking forward to meet you at the next conferences:
and some more where I don't yet know the dates. Keep me informed if you organize a conference or hear about one. See you there!
