FileMaker and web services (and us)
The best part though is that we can manage all these services from a FileMaker solution.
Which is exactly what happens when someone joins one of Goya's sponsor programs: their Dropbox, Zendesk and Mailchimp account details are auto created via FileMaker scripts.
Pretty neat, it saves us quite a few clicks!
Want to try it yourself? In the coming weeks we will publish articles here and add examples to the share folder available to all our sponsors. If you'd like copies of our example files, please consider signing up as a sponsor.
Next week FileMaker integration with Dropbox.
In the meanwhile, if you're not sure this should matter to a FileMaker developer or what web services are, you can download the slides of my Devcon 2015 session
or check out this excellent introduction to web services from Mason Stenquist at DB Services.
Update : Part 1 is up : FileMaker integration with Dropbox
Salvatore is our web services and integration expert, passionate about linking any API useful to our clients (or us!) to FileMaker. He loves to share ideas and a good story, and as a speaker at DevCon he manages to do both.
