FileMaker Developer Interview – Nick Lightbody – YouTube

FileMaker Developer Interview – Nick Lightbody

Do you need to routinely update your (or a clients) website?  Would you like it to be fast and easy to do?  And how would you like the website you built to be blazingly fast?

Then you need to watch this interview of Nick Lightbody of DeskspaceCMS, about his FileMaker based Content Management System that allows a user to rapidly build and share content to a website…a website that is extraordinarily fast. What does that mean for the website? A fast website ranks better – much better – with search engines than slow sites.

As an additional bonus, Mike Beargie adds from his storehouse of knowledge to the interview. Thank you, Mike!
