000. The Basics

PauseOnError is a gathering of software developers and consultants who use FileMaker. This is a self-organizing effort; content is created by the attendees.

POE is inexpesive, but not free. It's taken many forms over the years. But, above all, it's just really cool to get together, share our work, get feedback and learn from each other.

We’ll find a place to meet, a place to sleep, and we'll feed you, so you can focus on sharing, learning, and trying new things. Buy a ticket, add something to the schedule, and you're speaking at Pause.
