  2. Have you ever needed to create a FileMaker SVG icon from scratch because you can’t find the specific one you need? This post will tell you what you need to know to get you out of your pickle. <<Insert pickle icon here>> It can be hard to find an icon set that has every symbol you need.

  10. Over time, one collects bits and pieces of knowledge about different corners of development. Features that are a little more difficult to discover, or shortcuts that can help out in a pinch.
