I get so much join in working with others. Whatever the subject, it is fully part of my DNA to share knowledge I've gained in a thoughtful and meaningful way to people who'd like to learn. Through blog posts, podcast interviews with guests, recorded videos, and now live trainings, my being and my company are here to share my experience. So I thought I would take this blog post (first one in awhile) to spell out the training and its meaning to me.
Why I do this
The JS-in-FM training (course 1 of many)
The goals and scope
- The quirkiness of the web viewer
- The JS language syntax
- VSCode's features
In all I do I want to make sure that participants come away with the realization that working with JS in FileMaker is not scary. Additionally I want to provide tools to make this work as easy as possible.
Over the course of the 12 hours, we examine the C3 Library for charts, a date range picker library, and, a favorite of FileMaker developers, the DataTables library. I feel these three have great possibilities for FileMaker. They bring a lot of functionality to an app in a short amount of time.
All throughout the sessions, I answer questions and provide feedback and support to fix bugs along the way. I'm not about to leave someone behind if they're new to this.
The JS-in-FM training course is taking up a lot of space in my brain. As I walk the dogs each morning or drive down to Walt Disney World, I consider every part of it. Don't get me wrong, the training course I think is complete and logical, but I want to ensure that every part of it is meaningful and useful.
I've made some great changes since the very first cohort.
