Important Rucksack news and announcements for the last days of July and the first ten days of August 2018.
THIS WEEK (July 30): WE WILL BE HARDER TO REACH THAN USUAL
William Porter will be out of the office a little more than usual on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday this week (July 30 and 31 and August 2). On those days he may not be his usual rapid-response self. Apologies in advance.
NEXT WEEK (August 6): NOT CLOSING EXACTLY, BUT GOING DARK FOR FOUR DAYS
The FileMaker Developers Conference 2018 will take place in the Dallas area August 6–9, 2018. This international gathering of database nerds is the biggest annual event in the world for FileMaker developers. During those four days, we will not technically be closing, but we do expect to be deeply absorbed and so we are "going dark" for a couple of days. Things will be back to normal around here August 10!
MID-AUGUST: WE'RE MOVING TO 17
As soon as the Developers Conference is over we will be moving all our clients to FileMaker 17. More information coming shortly.
FILEMAKER 17 CERTIFIED!
We don't toot our horn as much as our friends in marketing tells us we should. But we do want to mention that, in July, William Porter took the very challenging FileMaker 17 Certification examination and we are proud to say that (once again) he passed — one of the first developers in North Texas to earn this feather in his cap. With each new version, the FileMaker platform gets more capable and also more complex. Certification is a token that your favorite developer (well, we hope!) is staying ahead of the curve.
Of course, don't hesitate to email support@rucksack-technology (or write directly to William Porter) if you have any questions.
