[ANN] Stairway to Seven: Hands-On FileMaker Training [XPOST]

Jerry Robin-2
Step up to the Power of 7 with our most popular hands-on FileMaker Pro
training class!

    a 4-day hands-on workshop for experienced FileMaker developers
    who want to become proficient in FileMaker 7

Phoenix, Arizona;  Tuesday-Friday, June 14-17, 2005

Instructors: Jerry Robin and Susan Prosser (see instructor bios below)

Introducing "Stairway to Seven: Enhanced Edition"
Since May of 2004, we have offered Stairway to Seven as a 3-day class. Due
to requests from our students, we have expanded the class from 3 days to 4
days, to allow time for more hands-on exercises and more in-depth discussion
of relational design, scripting, and migration issues.

"If you're moving to FileMaker 7 and DON'T take the Stairway to Seven class,
you're making a big mistake."
- John Atkins, Cog Works; Rural Hall, NC

We'll cover a wide range of topics, including:

- Working with script parameters
- New calculation functions
- Creating Custom Functions with FileMaker Developer 7
- Working with multiple windows

- Migrating databases to FileMaker 7

This class is NOT for beginners. It is for developers already experienced in
building databases with FileMaker 5.x or 6. FMPtraining's "Scriptology 101"
and "Relational Database Design Essentials" courses - or equivalent
experience - are required.

NOTE: The original 3-day version of this class will be offered September
1-3, immediately after the FileMaker Developer Conference. The same topics
will be covered, but in the 4-day version we have significantly more time
for detailed discussion of many topics, and more hands-on exercises. (For
example, in the 3-day class, we spend about 6 hours on the new Relational
Model. In the Enhanced Edition, we give it about 10 hours.)
