Jesse Feiler has been designing databases and user-oriented solutions for two decades. He is the author of a number of books on Mac OS X, FileMaker, the Web, and a variety of other technologies such as Drupal, mashups, and Facebook. His most recent books are Filemaker Pro 10 in Depth, Sams Teach Yourself Drupal in 24 Hours, and iWork ’09 for Dummies.
A member of the FileMaker Business Alliance, he is also a developer of solutions for small businesses, nonprofit organizations (particularly those in the arts fields), publishing, and production companies. He has done many FileMaker rehabs, bringing them up to modern standards and designs. His knowledge of FileMaker and Mac OS X technologies has helped him integrate tools such as Automator into FileMaker solutions–and now into Bento.
He has worked as a developer and manager for companies such as the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (monetary policy and bank supervision), Prodigy (early Web browser), Apple (information systems), New York State Department of Health (rabies and lead poisoning), The Johnson Company (office management), and Young & Rubicam (media planning and new product development).
Active in the community, he has served on a variety of nonprofit boards including those of HB Studio and Mid-Hudson Library System, as well as zoning and planning boards. He has conducted trustee training sessions for Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library System and other groups.
