Cris Ippolite Is Beginning To Make Me Want To Drink The KoolAid
I've been slow to warm up to FileMaker 9. I know that I will. Most of it is a still an adverse reaction to the ScriptMaker/Script Debugger interfaces (or lack thereof). I'll come around eventually and this was about a new step in that direction.
I've had a lynda.com account for a little while now (about 3 months) and I've been hit/miss in taking the time to view the training videos available there. Today (the Saturday on Labor Day weekend), I hit the trail with the wonder dog and logged a little over 12 miles. Came back home, took a shower, made a salad, watched some TV and then headed to the porch with my MacBook.
Sipping some coffee for the neuron boost, I began to watch some of Cris Ippolite's videos in the "FileMaker 9 Beyond The Basics series". I watched the section on "Working With Objects" and it was interesting. I'm not sure that I'm going to be a web scrapper anytime soon but I enjoyed the movies.
What prompted me to blog was the "Working with External SQL Sources" section. It's not very intense, 8 movies for a total running time of about 30 minutes. But it was enough to get my little mental hamster on the wheel. So if you have an extra $25 buck to spare, sign up for a lynda.com account and check out the library of FileMaker (and other application) training videos. You can always cancel after the first month but you might keep it active like I have!
