Perspective Development - Comparing FileMaker's "wysiwyg" to Other Platforms

Mike Beargie (MainSpring, Inc.)

In this session we will do a side-by-side comparison on how FileMaker stacks up to other platforms. My hope is to "shock" FileMaker developers into understanding the raw power they have in terms of development speed and feature set.

Over the last three months, I've been evaluating dozens of other platforms in an effort to explore whats out there, and debunk some rumors along the way. I've found a vast array of platforms that are worth taking note of, but will those stack up against FileMaker? Come find out!

I will break down the pros and cons of the 11 "best" platforms I evaluated; stopping along the way to point out key differences, expectations and cool features that we can request for FileMaker. I will share my scoring of these platforms so you can decide for yourself if you would like to pursue them further. Discussion will also be welcomed throughout for comparing some of the advantages and disadvantages on both sides.

This is an unlocked demo file displaying the simple functionality I tried to duplicate as I evaluated each platform.
