Micah Woods: Uncovering a hidden Gem: FileMaker's Internal SQL


If you think Set Field By Name is cool, internal SQL will blow your socks off! If you haven’t already drunk the Kool-Aid, come by and take a sip. We’ll start with a brief intro to SQL, but quickly move on to real world examples that compare “standard” vs. “SQL” approaches to everyday scripting tasks. SQL is THE database language and for good reason, come to this session and find out why.

Please note that Kevin Frank is giving a more advanced session on the same topic. If you’ve already seen the light, skip this one and go see Kevin.

EVERYONE: please fill out this quick 5 question survey so we can get a better idea of where the community stands in regards to internal SQL. The results will be presented at Pause. THANKS!
