Molly Thorsen asked if we could help jump start some business for JumpStartFM, a great month long, online course designed to take your FileMaker, project management, and other related skills to a much higher level. FileMaker Pro Gurus is happy to help out.
JumpStartFM is tailored to your skill level, and you will be working with some of the most recognized names in the FileMaker World. Here’s the info for those interested:
What is JumpStartFM?
JumpStartFM is a one-month, online course for FileMaker developers taught by some of the most respected developers in the field. The instructors have designed a set of “hands-on” projects that — after an initial one-on-one program planning – will be tailored to your skill level and desired learning outcomes. The coursework and webinars are deliberately paced to help you absorb information, but you will need to be self-motivated to get the most out of the course. Once a week, the instructors host a “live check-in” session and answer questions from the group. JumpStartFM is not just a technical training class. The course also includes project management tools and techniques to help you advance your career as a software developer. The ultimate goal of JumpStartFM is to help you develop both technical and project management skills and move your career to the next level.
How does JumpStartFM work?
We understand that you have a busy schedule and have designed a flexible, hands-on class. JumpStartFM can be done from the office or from home and requires no travel. You will complete a series of pre-recorded webinars, homework assignments and participate in live chat sessions. The one-hour live sessions are held each Monday. You will have an opportunity to ask questions, get feedback, and share ideas with classmates during this time, and the class also shares information via an online resource. You receive a technical review from your instructors on each assignment via email. To get the most out of JumpStartFM, you will need to be self-motivated and invest the time required to complete the assigned projects.
I’m a senior developer. Why should I take JumpStartFM?
Your instructors will tailor your project work to your experience level, and you’ll receive one-on-one feedback. If you’re thinking about going off on your own, this course includes in-depth insight into the process of consulting. Sales, time management, billing, estimating and quality assurance techniques are all part of JumpStartFM, and they are key elements of running a financially successful consulting business. We want to make sure you get the most out of the technical and business sessions so please us to see if this course is right for you.
I’ve been working with FileMaker for several years now. I still have things to learn, but I’m not a beginner. Is this course right for me?
We’ve geared the technical aspects of this course to address both beginning and mid-level developers. Perhaps you are a “power user” who wants to dig deeper on the development side. Perhaps you’ve been working with FileMaker on the development side and want to sharpen your skills in specific areas. We’ll develop a plan with each student to ensure you get the most out of this course, and you will receive a technical review from your instructors on each assignment via email.
If you are serious about making a career as a FileMaker Developer, think seriously about taking this course. Otherwise, you’ll have to learn the hard way.
