I really love teaching people how to use FileMaker Pro. It is so exciting to see that light bulb go off in students' heads when they finally understand a FileMaker concept or learn something they never thought FileMaker could accomplish.

If you are struggling with the cost, travel or time commitment for a quality FileMaker class, perhaps some former students of mine can convince you. I get tons of testimonials every time I teach a class, and I am always amazed at how my classes change the lives of the students.

Quote about Developer Conference
"My name is Sam Jordan. I am an in-house developer for an educational children's book publisher in NYC, and I attended your sessions on The Philosophy of Scripting and Philosophy of Calculations at DevCon 2004. I just wanted to tell you that I found them to be the best sessions of all that I attended at DevCon this year. I found them to be a perfect balance of hands-on, "under the hood" information and conceptional understanding of philosophy and function. Your short, clear explanations made the concepts very clear, and your detailed files have made follow up easy and understandable. I have come home with many new ideas that I have already started deploying across my solutions, and many more to think about and deploy more slowly. So in short, I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to create such detailed and well thought presentations. It is very much appreciated by those who attended." - Sam Jordan

GoToMeeting Training and Consulting
If you can't afford the time away from work or you require a very specific solution, I offer GoToMeeting training and consulting. This allows you to customize the training to a specific area or have me assist you with a specific issue. I'll even send you FileMaker files demonstrating any techniques we cover during the session.

If you aren't familiar with GoToMeeting, it is a service that allows two or more people to share and control their screens. GoToMeeting is the best collaboration tools I have ever used!

If you are interested in talking to me, call 909-393-4664 PST or email me at jmo@filemakerpros.com.

Exclamation s This site runs entirely on FileMaker and PHP because I wanted to demonstrate that FileMaker really can do it all!
