FileMaker Developers’ Conference (DevCon) 2009

If you’ve got a spare US$1495 you might be interested in registering to attend the FileMaker Developers’ Conference 2009 on Thursday, August 13 – Sunday, August 16, 2009 at the San Francisco Hilton. Registration includes a free copy of FileMaker 10 Advanced, valued at US$499.

Not sure if the users get to upload their own content onto them though.
