Beyond Virtual Machines: Tapping into the AWS Universe of Services

This session is NOT about how to run FileMaker Server or FileMaker Cloud using Amazon Web Services (AWS). Instead, we will embark on a one hour tour of the incredibly powerful software as a service (SaaS) offerings from AWS. AWS is the largest cloud computing vendor in the world, with services such as real-time message queues, machine learning, and massive on-demand general computing services. You'll learn how to interact directly with any of these services by sending AWS requests using the FileMaker Platforms Insert from URL, JSON, and encryption features.

Recommended Background
Experience with the Insert from URL script step, REST APIs, cURL, and JSON.

Session Objectives

  • How to send AWS requests natively
  • Transferring container data to and from Amazon S3
  • High-performance audit logging using Kinesis
  • Transcription service for audio recordings

360Works Booth Action!

Booth Action #1: Free Consulting - MirrorSync Setup Station

Heard about MirrorSync and just haven’t found the time to get it set up? At DevCon, we are taking care of the setup up for you! That’s right, a service which we typically provide at our hourly consulting rate, we are providing to you, completely free at the 360Works booth during DevCon 2018 (see limitations below).

Once one of our experienced developers sets up MirrorSync for you, the syncing possibilities will be endless. With MirrorSync, you can sync any combination of FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go, FileMaker Server, and SQL databases such as MySQL, SQL Server, WordPress, Salesforce, and more! You can even test it out by using it to sync your data while on the go at DevCon. If you need more people or databases to start syncing with a particular database, adding additional configurations and devices is a cinch!
