Scripting by the Bay, Redux -- For those who need to acquire or hone AppleScript skills, Shane Stanley and Ray Robertson will once again be leading their wonderfully intensive AppleScript Pro sessions, 02-May-05 through 06-May-05, in beautiful Monterey, California. I'm slated once again to teach my famous "forced march through AppleScript Studio" class. One source of real excitement is the question of whether Tiger will have shipped in time; if it does, we'll be able to talk about the new features, such as BLEEEP and BOOOP (sorry, censored by the NDA police).
