Meet Your Favorite Mac Experts at MCE

Send Article to a Friend

We attend and write about the big Macworld Expo conference each year, but it’s not the only event to bring together some of the industry’s top Mac experts. Next week, join TidBITS Senior Editor Jeff Carlson and other Mac notables at the Mac Computer Expo (MCE) in Petaluma, CA for a free day of informative sessions and stimulating conversation. Jeff will be demonstrating how to edit video in iMovie for iOS (with a bunch of tips and workarounds), and joins speakers such as Jason Snell, Christopher Breen, Ted Landau, Tom Negrino, Jeff Gamet, and Derrick Story. The event will also display Bert Monroy’s impressive Times Square digital illustration (measuring 5 feet high and 25 feet long, built using over 500,000 layers in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator). If you attend, bring your electronic recycling — anyone turning in a hard drive to be recycled is entered into a drawing to win a new Mac mini. MCE is free to attend, and goes from 9 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, 1 October 2011.Generic Globefollow link
