Excelisys Inc., is proud to announce the publication of Michael Rocharde’s FileMaker® & Me, an interactive, multimedia ebook created for the iPad® and available exclusively at the iTunes® store.

Over the course of his 25-year career as a FileMaker® Pro Developer—10 of those as a member of the Excelisys team—Michael has published more than 40 articles and developed several commercial products, one of which was the highly acclaimed ISP Billing Software. With the publication of FileMaker® & Me, Rocharde offers more than 220 pages worth of hard-fought insight drawn from 25 years in the FileMaker® trenches, including chapters on:

  • Finding a Starting Point
  • Reworking Somebody Else’s Design
  • Reworking Your Own Design
  • WYS is not always WYG
  • Using Tab Panels
  • Using Conditional Formatting
  • Understanding and Using Variables
  • The Power of Virtual List
  • Scripting
  • Tips & Tricks
  • and much, much more.

FileMaker® & Me has already garnered praise from the FileMaker® community, including Chris Ippolite, president and founder of iSolutions, Inc., a Los Angeles-based custom software and Web design firm, and one of only 30 Platinum-level FileMaker® Solution Alliance members in the world. “Treat this book as a necessary resource, and combine it with the rich toolset that FileMaker® 12 offers, and you’ll find yourself creating successful ‘solutions’ for your users time after time.”

FileMaker® & Me includes dozens of interface examples from some of the best interface designers in the FileMaker® community, and hundreds of screenshots and pages of useful resources to help FileMaker® developers of all abilities on their journey. “Although it is primarily aimed at beginner to intermediate developers, I think that everybody who works with FileMaker® will find something of interest and value in it,” Rocharde said.

“Michael offers a unique perspective on building solutions based on his experiences—the good, the bad and the ugly,” said Geoff Ryle, co-founder of Excelisys. “This FileMaker book is an excellent addition to any developer’s library of resources.”
