LONDON, UK, March 2, 2005 - Registration is now open for the FileMaker Developer Conference, Aug. 28 - Sept. 1 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, announced FileMaker.

This year's conference is expected to draw a record number of corporate and independent FileMaker database developers, as well as customers, from more than 30 countries. A wide range of information management-related issues will be discussed (see conference session overview below). In previous years, attendees have also had an exclusive opportunity to get the latest information on FileMaker products.

Conference speakers-leading FileMaker experts-will explore the breakthroughs in ease-of-use, customizability and developer productivity using the award-winning FileMaker 7 family of database software products.

“FileMaker 7 is our most significant and successful version ever,” said Dominique Goupil, president of FileMaker, Inc. “The conference is the best place for customers and developers to learn everything they need to unleash all the power of FileMaker and give themselves a competitive edge.”

According to a poll conducted at last year's FileMaker Developer Conference, over 90 percent of respondents said they would recommend attending this year's Conference to other developers. Nearly 80 percent said that the speakers were among the best reasons for attending, with nearly 70 percent agreeing that peer networking was a great benefit.

This year's FileMaker Developer Conference, now entering its 10th year, will include more than 40 sessions focusing on new tools and techniques, best practices and new approaches for developing solutions more securely, efficiently and creatively. In addition to a wide range of technical sessions, the conference will offer a multi-vendor product showcase featuring FileMaker third-party solutions and products, meetings with FileMaker engineers, product managers, and technical support team members, the second annual FileMaker database competition, the FileMaker Excellence Awards, along with many other social and networking events.
