I’ve been using Filemaker to design databases for the better part of a decade. I’m by no means a professional database developer, but I’ve been able to easily turn my hand to using Filemaker.
Like most of my skills I’ve picked it up whilst working as a consultant it was mostly due to necessity. It started with a small database to help us track clients and candidates for a recruitment company and grew beyond that to something more complex and helpful.
Now after eight years of using the system I designed the customer has asked me to rebuild it from the ground up. So over the next few weeks I’ll be blogging my way through the redesign, with the type of descriptions I’d of found helpful when I first started developing with FileMaker.
