MacTech Boot Camp 2011 coming to four more cities


If you missed MacTech Boot Camp before Macworld this year, you may have a chance to attend if you live in or around Dallas, Boston, Los Angeles or Chicago. In fact, there happen to be major airports in all of those towns, so if the cost of flying to San Francisco was out of reach, you're in luck!

What is MacTech Boot Camp? A one-day session geared towards the home user, small business users and anyone who may assist those users (your family's computer guy, for example). We've been quite impressed with the MacTech events we've attended so far, and attendees at the San Francisco Boot Camp were quite enthusiastic with what they learned. Full press release on the next page, but we've listed the locations and dates of the upcoming events below.

  • Dallas, Texas: April 27, 2011 - Sessions Chair: CV Rao, and Nathan Toups
  • Boston, Massachusetts: May 18, 2011 - Sessions Chair: Andy Espo, and Leon Lincoln
  • Los Angeles, California: July 27, 2011 - Sessions Chair: Sean Colins
  • Chicago, Illinois: August 31, 2011 - Sessions Chair: Douglas Ward, and Ben Greiner

Announcing Four More Cities for MacTech Boot Camp 2011
- Seminar for consultants and techs supporting the home and small business markets

February 17, 2011 -- WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA -- On the heels of the incredible success of MacTech Conference in November, and a sell out MacTech Boot Camp in San Francisco in January, MacTech has announced today four more MacTech Boot Camps in 2011. Each of these one-day events cater to those who support the home user, and small business market. MacTech Boot Camp is a single-track, hotel based seminar that is specifically geared to serve the needs of consultants and techs wanting to serve their clients better. MacTech Boot Camp will be held in the cities of Dallas, Boston, Los Angeles and Chicago.

"Last month, MacTech Boot Camp San Francisco 2011 sold out. We know that many consultants and techs in the market focus on serving the home and small business communities. We've designed the MacTech Boot Camp curriculum just for them," said Neil Ticktin, Editor-in-Chief/Publisher, MacTech Magazine. "If you're already serving the home and small business Mac users, or want to be, MacTech Boot Camp expert-taught sessions will help you to learn best practices that will not only make you more productive, but also more successful. And, for those Windows consultants that want to know more about the Mac, this is a great way to get exposed to a completely different type of market."
