FileMaker DevCon 2017 – 360Works Interview

FileMaker DevCon 2017 360works Interview

Every FileMaker developer with more than a week's worth of experience knows about 360works.  I have been helped by many, if not all, of the fine people who work there (Charis, it's always nice to hear your voice when I call for help).  And at DevCon 2017, I finally met and interviewed three of them I have spoken with in the last year:  Meet Arnold, Sterling, and Charis:

The staff at 360works has been busy in the past year, cranking out a major update to their plugin platform and new versions of their existing products.

Where's Jesse?

Some you may be wondering: Where was Jesse Barnum during all of this?  If you look at the right side of the video, you'll see the back of his white work coat!  I stopped by the booth several times, but Jesse was always busy talking, being interviewed, or off demonstrating a product or offering.  I'll catch up with him next year.


Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
