Make plans now to attend this year’s Mac Expo 2012 on October 6 in Petaluma, California. This is the 19th year for the Expo and it seems like each year’s Expo gets even better. The first MCE included a few hundred attendees. Last year’s Expo saw a few thousand attendees enjoy a day of education and fun. This year continues the tradition.
Great speakers? Yep – speakers will include many of the best-known names in the Macintosh community, including Derrick Story, Allison Sheridan, Chris Breen, Jeff Gamet, Tom Negrino, Kerry Rego, Bert Monroy and NCMUG Vice President Ronnie Roche (as of press time).
Service to the community? As part of the Expo, Data Rescue Center is offering a chance to win a free iPad; attendees can earn one raffle ticket for each drive turned in for recycling in addition to helping the environment. Good Will Industries will have an eWaste recycling drop off area as well.
Interesting topics? This year’s topics include a panel discussion of women in technology, a presentation on parenting in the mobile internet age and another on accessibility.
Fun discussions, educational offerings and great networking? Of course!
Amazingly, this is just the start. So, plan now and keep an eye on the Mac Expo 2012 web and Facebook pages as new details are released.
