Event to be held July 28th through 31st
Apple-owned FileMaker has opened up registrations for the 2014 FileMaker Developer Conference. The event is scheduled for July 28th through the 31st at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort in Texas. Beginning today through June 3rd, attendees can pick up "early bird" passes, costing $1,295 for a regular one or $1,895 for a Gold pass, which includes three pre-conference sessions on the 28th. Both options include a free copy of FileMaker Pro 13 Advanced. After June 3rd the price of a regular pass will be hiked by $300.
Group discounts are also being offered, including a four-for-three deal. A "limited number" of hotel rooms at the JW Marriott are available at a cheaper rate.
The focus of the 2014 conference will be on FileMaker 13, released late last year, as well as FileMaker WebDirect, and features that should appear in future products. Sessions will cover topics like design, mobility, development, and business use, and all relevant platforms, including Mac, Windows, iOS, and the web. FileMaker workers will be on hand to answer questions; an Exhibitor Showcase will be used to promote FileMaker-based services and add-ons. Networking events will give attendees a chance to mingle.
