FileMaker Training Should be Fun

Don't Forget Your Sense of Humor While Learning FileMaker

He who laughs most, learns best.
-John Cleese

Ok, we know. Tables, numbers, scripts, calculations - they aren't the most exciting thing in the world. But that doesn't mean FileMaker training can't be fun. In fact, we believe that the more fun you have while learning FileMaker, the better FileMaker developer you will become.

John Cleese reminds us that laughing is an important part of the learning process.

What Can we Laugh About?

So, you wrote a looping script and forgot to include the exit statement? Now you're stuck in an infinite loop?

No big deal. It's actually pretty funny! There's no need to get upset or frustrated. Instead, have a laugh at yourself and then keep going.

So you've been hunkered down in the office all day trying to deploy a new application but something isn't working right? You've tested everything you can think of, but can't figure it out?

Forget about it! Take the team out for a drink. Clear your mind and laugh a little. Chances are the solution will come to you right as you lift a cheesy nacho to your mouth!

Hopefully many of you are laughing it up right now at the FileMaker Developer's Conference in San Diego. You're learning a lot, but you're also having a ton of fun laughing and enjoying each other's company.

Join in on the Fun

This month, we're trying to have a little fun ourselves with a contest to promote our new FileMaker Forum. Get the contest details here.

So, remember that FileMaker training should be fun. Don't forget your sense of humor when you start learning FileMaker.

Enjoy!
