Women of FileMaker DevCon Scholarships

Are you interested in an in-depth look at FileMaker 17’s features? How about bolstering your understanding of cryptography and its uses in FileMaker? Do you want to adopt an Agile approach to your next project but don’t know where to start? These topics plus many more will be covered this August 6 through August 9 at FileMaker Developer Conference (DevCon) 2018 in Dallas, Texas.

If you’re a woman considering attending for the first time, you may be able to have the conference registration fee covered thanks to the Women of FileMaker community group.

The Women of FileMaker community has been providing scholarships to first-time attendees of DevCon since 2016. This year, scholarship recipients will have DevCon’s pre-paid registration cost covered and be assigned a conference mentor. They’ll also be introduced at the twelfth official Women of FileMaker luncheon.

Scholarship hopefuls can apply now by completing a short form and submitting an essay. The application deadline is Friday, March 16.

Funding for the scholarship and conference mentors are provided by the FileMaker community. If you’d like to contribute to the scholarship fund, make a donation via the GoFundMe page. If you’re interested in becoming a mentor, visit the Women of FileMaker website. Our very own Kimberly Carlson has been a mentor since its inception and would be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program.

And don’t forget to say hi to those of us attending this summer from AppWorks!
