FileMaker Training - Basics
A lot of technical information is presented but everything needed to develop a database and subsequent App is there.
For someone with an understanding of data modelling and database development the instruction manual provides a very good structured walk-through.
For the would-be developer who has never heard of 3rd Normal Form, Entity Relationships, Tables and Attributes etc., then there are some concepts to learn.
However, with determination and perseverance, the manual will enable anyone, with average intelligence, the means to build and deploy the application they need.
