I’m super stoked to let you guys in on the third new addition to the schedule this year, and it comes to us courtesy of Macstock speaker, Wally Cherwinski who introduced me to a Canadian filmmaker named Noah Leon and his super talented production team who are putting the final touches on a brand new documentary about “a little green computer and the people who love it”: Apple Computer’s Newton!
We’ve got a couple really cool new things in store for you at Macstock 2018!
With a theme centered around Productivity in 2018, one of those new additions I’m excited to share with you is that for the first time, Macstock will have a featured Keynote Speaker! And this year’s keynote presenter is Bob “Dr. Mac” LeVitus!
Often referred to as “Dr. Mac,” Bob is a leading authority on the Macintosh, Mac OS X / macOS, and other Apple products such as the iPad and iPhone. One of the Apple community’s most trusted gurus for over twenty-five years, he’s known for his trademark humorous style and unerring ability to translate “techie” jargon into usable and fun advice for regular folks.
Join Mike on this Macstock Road Trip to Other World Computing’s corporate headquarters in Woodstock, IL where he speaks with OWC’s president, Jennifer Soulé, about their environmental initiatives including how they harness the power of wind, solar, and geothermal energies to allow their corporate headquarters and other locations to operate in an environmentally sustainable way.
Chuck Joiner once again treats us to a behind the scenes look at Macstock, it’s presenters, and sponsors in his special MacVoices video series, The Road to Macstock! In this installment of The Road to Macstock 2017 Chuck speaks with Macstock presenter Kirschen Seah about Automator and how it can help you easily solve every day problems on the Mac.
The Road to Macstock is almost at an end, but not before Kirschen Seah of Free Range Coder tells us how she will be getting us excited about Apple’s Automator in both a main stage presentation, as well as a Deeper Dive session. Kirschen provides some examples of what Automator can do, and why you don’t have to know a single line of code to start automating your own activities.

Chuck Joiner once again treats us to a behind the scenes look at Macstock, it’s presenters, and sponsors in his special MacVoices video series, The Road to Macstock! In this installment of The Road to Macstock 2017 Chuck and two-time Macstock presenter Dave Hamilton discuss mesh networking and bringing ubiquitous WiFi to your home or office.
The Road to Macstock starts to close down as the event itself draws near, but we aren’t done yet. This time, Dave Hamilton of The Mac Observer and Mac Geek Gab gives us a preview of some of the information he will be delivering when he takes the stage to discuss mesh network routers. Dave talks about the problems mesh routers solve, some of the features you need to be aware of, and when it is appropriate to jump on the mesh network bandwagon.
