MacTech Boot Camp Adds Four More Cities

Reports from the MacTech Boot Camp in San Francisco last month indicate that it was a success, with the one-day conference selling out and garnering positive comments from attendees and speakers alike (though, apparently, there were no drill sergeants or pushup requirements). Building on that success, MacTech has now announced additional Boot Camp conferences for consultants and support techs around the United States. The new events are:

  • MacTech Boot Camp Dallas, on 27 April 2011
  • MacTech Boot Camp Boston, on 18 May 2011
  • MacTech Boot Camp Los Angeles, on 27 July 2011
  • MacTech Boot Camp Chicago, on 31 August 2011

The additional locations and dates should be welcome for those who couldn’t make the trip to San Francisco for the initial MacTech Boot Camp and the subsequent Macworld 2011 back in January.

MacTech has announced session chairs for each of the conferences, and although the sessions won’t be identical, the conferences will all cover roughly similar topics, including things like handling clients, support call techniques, remote support, backup systems, Windows on the Mac, networking basics and troubleshooting, marketing oneself, and resources for finding answers to tricky problems.

Registration for the one-day conference costs $495, and by registering early, you can drop that to $295.
