Chicago, Illinois – Thorsen Consulting, a leading software development company, invites FileMaker product, plugin and application developers to attend a special software conference, October 21-22.

“FileMaker developers who are currently selling or thinking about selling commercial products have unique needs in terms of the technical and business challenges and opportunities we face. It’s exciting to bring this group together for a truly exceptional learning and networking experience,” says Molly Connolly founder and organizer of the conference.

Businesses interested in selling vertical solutions will have the chance to find out what is takes to bring their solution to the next level. Industry experts will lead panel discussions and facilitated sessions to discuss high level planning and day-to-day nuances of running a software development company.

“The audience is made up of two main groups of people, the first group are seasoned professionals with established product companies who are looking to explore business and technical solutions to help grow their current business and increase profitability. The second group consists of sole proprietors who have a great idea for a product and come to learn how to take their product to market,” says Connolly.

Over 15 sessions include:
* Panel discussions on business topics include sales, marketing and operations
* Facilitated sessions on technical challenges including architecture, design, and deployment
* Presentation on recruiting, employee development and outsourcing
* Consultations from industry experts and representatives from FileMaker, Inc.

Vendors including Goya, 360Works, Beezwax, NimbusHosting.Net, MSN Media, World Cloud, Extensitech, NRG and SeedCode will be presenting their products and services.

As an added bonus, the conference will be run concurrently with Don Levan’s conference: Experience and Style: The Design Conference for FileMaker Developers.

The two conferences boast an amazing keynote speaker. Ryan Singer, lead designer from 37Signals (creators of the popular Basecamp, HighRise) will be talking about his experience as a Product Developer.
