About

An informal gathering of developers and users of all levels where we all learn something. Discover new techniques, solve a problem or just chat about matters FileMaker with like minded people!

Meetings are usually held on the first Monday of every odd month In the current conditions, they are online only, but when some semblance of normality returns, they'll be hosted at The Dock Hub, Brighton and Hove. They will also be broadcast live via the offices of Forbidden Planet in London, where you are also welcome to attend with plans to extend to further locations with the assistance of Solis Digital.

If you came to the last meeting, please give us some feedback - we want to know what people think of the meetings so we can tailor them to your needs. Let us know how the presenters did, whether the topics were interesting or relevant etc.

If you're interested in dotFMP, there's more info here. Other groups are here.

If you enjoy our meetings, please share on social media with the hashtag #FMBug

Reminder - the opportunity to take the FM18 certification will end in May.

If you need to bone up, what better way than this excellent Resource, offered free to the community by Penny Ruddell?
