I have long wanted to help my clients by integrating their contacts or customers solutions with their MailChimp email processes. It used to be very difficult, involving PHP or some other roundabout method. When FileMaker introduced robust cURL options and JSON parsing in version 16, it became much easier. This course shows how to use those newer functions and how to develop scripted processes that make pulling and pushing data between MC and FM routine and easy. This was a great investment of study time for me.Read Less
