FileMaker @ Work

FileMaker 8 @ Work: Projects and Techniques to Get the Job Done, Jesse's new book on FileMaker includes projects with complete code and databases (downloadable from the Web). You'll see how to solve practical, real-life design issues as well as how to use new features in FileMaker 7 and FileMaker 8.

Automator Training Video

One of the major new features of Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) is Automator. It is a tool that lets you build workflows from actions that may be provided by Apple (over 200 are part of the Automator installation), by software developers -- or by you, following the techniques described in the second part of this tutorial. You can use Automator to automate repetitive tasks or to manage complex and rarely-performed tasks. If you have Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or later, you have Automator.
