Stylized classic Macintosh with a large X representing the Roman numeral 10 on screenWe’re kicking off 10 Years of Macstock this summer and I couldn’t be more excited to share with you what’s planned for Macstock 8!

Not only are we building a line up of 14+ great presenters who will be giving talks centered around this year’s theme, “Level UP!”, but we have a brand new venue this year too! For the first time in Macstock history (and you’ve all been asking for this), you’ll have hotel, conference center, and plenty of room to hang out with fellow attendees each evening all…in…one…place!

And that’s not all! With 8 Speakers announced so far (and more coming in the weeks ahead), we’re topping off what will already be an awesome weekend by offering a day of Workshops as an “add on” to the Weekend Pass! Developed with the help of Mike Schmitz and led by some of your favorite Macstock presenters, Macstock’s Workshop sessions aim to provide deeper dives into topics through Interactive Discussion and In-depth Demonstrations. I’ve been wanting to bring workshops to Macstock for several years and the new venue makes it possible this year!

Here’s a Quick Re-cap of Macstock 8’s Weekend:
