MacTech BootCamp III Locations and Dates Announced

Send Article to a Friend

If the full-fledged MacTech Conference in Los Angeles is inconvenient for you (see “MacTech Conference 2012 Opens Mental Doors,” 22 October 2012 and “MacTech Conference 2013 Abounds with Networking and Fun,” 11 November 2013), MacTech BootCamp III offers a number of one-day, single-track seminars geared to the needs of consultants and IT professionals. The BootCamp events take place around North America, reducing the hassle of travel, and they take less time away from work because they’re only a single day (plus a half day before, if you want to participate in the free 2014 Accreditation for Office for Mac program).

Even for those who have attended in the past, MacTech BootCamp III has a new set of topics aimed at helping Apple techs stay up to date with the latest technologies while also networking with local peers and making useful vendor contacts. I attended a BootCamp event in New York City back in 2012, and was quite impressed with the depth and utility of the information shared.

This year’s sessions cover Apple IDs, Wi-Fi best practices, software deployment, backups and storage, profiles for mobile device management, and lots on security, the hot topic of the day.

MacTech BootCamp events normally cost $499, which includes lunch and a year’s subscription to MacTech magazine, but TidBITS readers can register for $299. The dates and locations for MacTech BootCamp III are as follows:

  • February 12, 2014: Seattle, WA
  • March 12, 2014: Atlanta, GA
  • April 9, 2014: Austin, TX
