Worlds Most Popular FREE FileMaker Solution Gets Major Update!

FM Starting Point 4.2 available today, now has full integrated support for barcode printing and scanning.   From searching for Contacts via barcode to adding line items to Invoices and Estimates, FMSP has you covered.

We have partnered up with Geist Interactive (developer of Barcode Creator) to make this a reality. Currently, you can scan any barcode into FMSP and do a search or add line items but with Barcode Creator you have the power to generate and print barcodes on Invoices, Products, Labels, etc.

While FMSP continues to be free, and offers scanning of barcode, user who want to create and print their own barcodes will want to make a one time purchase of Todd Geist’s award winning Barcode creating software for $199. This is of course optional, but FMSP is wired and ready to accept the BarCode Creator software as soon as you purchase it.  A short video is available to show you how to install it.

RCC Training its 40th College Intern

I wanted to share a milestone in the history of RCC.  Not that I turned 40… I did that already.  RCC is now training its 40th college intern.

For those that are unaware of this… at any given time RCC is busy training a corp of college interns in the art of FileMaker.  RCC interns spend many months learning database design work, programming, and even the more important aspect of project and customer management.  They will take these skills plus many life lessons with them forever.  Some of the interns stay with RCC to become full fledged FileMaker Engineers.   In fact, in the past 12 months, RCC has had five of the interns go on to get their FileMaker 12 certifications.

About 1/3 of the interns  stay with RCC to create a permanent career, while the rest take their kung-fu FileMaker skills and move on to other job opportunities….where no doubt…FileMaker gets used to solve problems.

Where are our former interns now? well…. a short list reads like a Tom Clancy Book.  Two Marines, a Chief Petty Officer on a Nuclear Submarine (in the Nuke Part of the boat), three school teachers, a number of government employees, one that works in “high finance”…etc.

I am pleased with the people we turn out, and certainly they all become advocates for FileMaker.   A new crop of youthful developers…something that the FileMaker community really needs.
