DevCon 2015 Scholarship Offered to FileMaker Developers

Application Deadline – May 1, 2015

CHICAGO – March 25, 2015- Molly Connolly of Thorsen Consulting and Cris Ippolite of iSolutions are pleased to announce a new scholarship opportunity available to FileMaker developers. The scholarship will cover the cost of a full conference pass to DevCon 2015; a $1600 value. Connolly and Ippolite will select two developers for the award.

The scholarships have been established to encourage FileMaker developers wishing to take advantage of the many professional training and networking opportunities at DevCon, according to Thorsen and Ippolite.

We understand that when you’re first starting out, funding a conference fee, hotel and airfare is not an easy thing to do,” says Cris Ippolite. “These two scholarships will make it possible for two  developers who would not normally be able to attend DevCon to join us.

Both Connolly and Ippolite have found DevCon sessions and professional networking opportunities add great value to their businesses.

Coincidentally, both Cris and I attended our first DevCon in Monterrey, California and it marked the beginning of exciting careers for both of us,” says Molly Connolly. “We are hoping to find individuals who are passionate about this exciting work and help them take their FileMaker careers to the next level.

DevCon takes place July 20-23, 2015 at The Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas, Nevada. Eligible scholarship applicants include men or women who have never attended DevCon before. Developers will be asked to complete a short survey indicating their experience using FileMaker and write a brief essay that begins with the sentence,

iSolutions and Thorsen Consulting should send me to DevCon because…
