FileMaker Pro Users Group - Dallas Chapter

 

Welcome to the FileMaker Pro Users Group Dallas Chapter.  We are a computer users group that supports software users and developers of Claris' Workplace Innovation Platform software including FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Server, FileMaker Go, FileMaker WebDirect, and Claris Connect.


We meet monthly for lunch on the first Friday of the month at 11:15am CST at Harmonic Data's Tree House meeting room at 14901 Quorum Drive, Suite 295, Dallas, Texas 75254. We meet both virtually and in-person at the same time, so join us either way. The virtual Web Conference URL is https://meetings.ringcentral.com/j/8537859519

 

 

About our Meetings

 

Most of our meetings are about a presentation on a specific FileMaker software topic, often with a lot of community interaction and feedback.

 

Everyone is welcome to the user group meetings and there is no requirement for attendance other than decent civility (e.g., Golden Rule). The topics we present tend to be intermediate to advanced development topics. Typical topics are about calculations, schema, user interace, scripting, security and plugins.

 

The meetings are small enough for good audience interaction typically with 10-25 people in attendance.

Organization

 

We are an unaffiliated independent organization organized to further software educational purposes using Claris software and the FileMaker platform. While we promote and teach FileMaker software, we are not legally connected with or otherwise related to Claris International other than we are recognized by them as a FileMaker Pro Users Group, and that is the extent of our relationship. We used to operate our web page under the umbrella of www.FMPUG.com, the FileMaker Users Group national organization, and still maintain some of our information there.
