FileMaker 9

Developer Productivity in FileMaker Pro 9 Awesome

I’m getting incredible productivity in FileMaker Pro 9 Advanced. The Advanced features help mainly in the debugging phase. The regular Pro 9 features help in development with the multiple script windows open while I test.

All the pieces are in place now to be very efficient as a developer.

I’m in the middle of a project converting a FileMaker 5.5 system to FileMaker 9. This is way fun. I’m taking multiple scripts and cranking out single script parameter and variable driven versions in a couple minutes. Maybe its the growing experience along with the fine-tuning FileMaker Inc. has done in 9.

A great experience. FMI has put it all together. I expect you’ll be hearing a lot about FileMaker 9 here and elsewhere.
