FileMaker releases FileMaker Training Series: Basics
FileMaker has announced its release of an all-new free training series for its recently-premiered FileMaker 13 Platform. FileMaker Training Series: Basics assists with learning how to build professional custom business applications and solutions that run on iOS, Windows and Mac OS X, and the web. New users can learn the fundamentals of FileMaker, and then progress quickly to create what they need for business and professional use.
Recommended as a first step, 'Getting Started Tours' navigate users through the key elements of FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go, and are automatically installed with the software. Those interested in accessing the tour guides prior to purchasing FileMaker can download a trial of FileMaker Pro 13, or download the free FileMaker Go 13 for iPhone or iPad from the App Store.
The FileMaker Training Series builds on the 'Getting Started Tours' and introduces the fundamentals of creating and deploying custom business creations, including an iBook and activity files. A free download, FileMaker's basics training series is available online through FileMaker, and at the iBooks Store.
