Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week released its "Learning Filemaker Pro 13 Training Video," an introductory course focusing on the practical skills and techniques of using this GUI-based approach to data management.
FileMaker Pro is a relational database application that integrates its database engine with a graphics-based user interface, allowing users to work with information by dragging and dropping and other conventional navigation features in data management and utility.
Initially designed for Apple operating systems, FileMaker is currently available for both Windows and Mac formats, and can be used effectively as a cross-platform solution.
Infinite Skills' "Learning FileMaker Pro 13 Training Video" provides all the essential tools and techniques for getting started with databases in FileMaker. Students will gain a solid understanding of critical functionality as they build the bibliography application, becoming familiar with many of the program's advanced capabilities for calculations and automation.
Course author Ray Cologon has worked with FileMaker for more than twenty years in art and multimedia applications. He is the founder of NightWing Enterprises, a FileMaker development and consulting company, and has worked with the program since 1998, having received the Filemaker Excellence Award in 2005.
In Learning FileMaker Pro 13 Training Video, Cologon brings his up-beat and insightful teaching style to help new users simplify complex FileMaker techniques, allowing students to quickly and efficiently start using the program to organize and manage data.
While the primary elements of the course can apply to all recent versions of the program, Cologon includes a chapter devoted to updates and new features in the latest edition.
After an introduction on the FileMaker system, explaining how to start a database and set preferences, Cologon explains how to begin structuring data, exploring key concepts of databases like data relationships and operations.
He then begins teaching how to build an interface with FileMaker, explaining how to use layout tools to customize the environment to specific needs, before moving on to fundamentals like working with data, fundamental database design, automation options, and more.
"FileMaker is a cleverly designed program that performs complex tasks in straightforward ways," Cologon says. "There's a lot of power under the hood, so while you can always keep it simple, when you need to do heavy lifting, FileMaker will stay with you to the industrial strength end of database programming."
