The History of FileMakers Draco Database
Quick quiz: How many of you knew the name of the database that drives FileMaker? If you answered Draco, move to the front of the class. Clay Maeckel dives deep under to hood of FileMaker to give not only the history of the Draco Engine, but a glimpse of where it’s going in the future.
So who is Clay Meackel? Maeckel was employee #15 at Claris, FileMaker’s legal predecessor, and is now the Chief Software Architect at FileMaker. Gives him some credibility, I’d say.
I haven’t had time to listen to it all yet, but it’s on my list. I particularly want to know how they changed the Draco Database engine to improve FileMaker 15 performance.
