Learn Some Serious AppleScript in Newport, RI

Send Article to a Friend

Learn Some Serious AppleScript in Newport, RI -- Having written a book about AppleScript (AppleScript: The Definitive Guide from O'Reilly), I like being asked to do cool AppleScript-related things; and having been a college professor for many years, there's nothing I enjoy so much as live teaching in front of a classroom. So I'm really looking forward to November 11th and 12th, when I'll be teaching a minor session on scripting Microsoft Word 2004 and a major session on AppleScript Studio, in Newport, Rhode Island, as part of the AppleScript Pro Sessions. (I participated once already, back in May, in Monterey, CA, and had a great time.) There will be lots of other great teaching and learning going on in other sessions too; check out the AppleScript Pro Sessions site for more info. [MAN]
