Chuck Joiner brings us to the door of Macstock 2016 in this final installment of The Road to Macstock with Macstock organizer Mike Potter on Chuck’s MacVoices Podcast!
The Road to Macstock wraps up with an update from organizer Mike Potter on the panel of speakers that has been assembled, the international flavor of the attendees, and a fashionable accessory that has been added to the mix. In the absence of Barry Fulk, Mike also adds to the information about the Midwest Mac BBQ companion event, reminds us about the discount code that can save you $25 off admission to everything, and tells us why you may still be able to benefit from Macstock (six months later) even if you can’t make it. Hope to see you at Macstock!
Buckle Up and get ready for Road to Macstock 2016 with Chuck Joiner on this new episode of MacVoices!
We start a new series to celebrate and support Macstock Conference & Expo and The Midwest Mac BBQ with a visit by Mike Potter and Barry Fulk, the organizers of the two events. This year, they have combined to create a great weekend of tech education and socialization in the Chicago suburbs. Mike and Barry discuss why this year attending both events will be even easier, why it is now a two-day conference, and the roster of speakers. Everything attendees loved about last year’s event is back, and more. Find out why you need to be making your plans to attend now.
Because I became feed up of being the administrator for the Windows box that we owned, plus I had a horrific failure which if I hadn’t been as geeky as I had been I’d have lost a load of personal data, mainly photo’s. I was though extremely hesitant at first because I thought that I’d miss ‘getting my hands dirty’ by getting into the machine, how wrong I was with the older Mac Mini’s. Not so much now of course, but that means I get to play with all that great software.
What would you say to someone to convince them to come to Macstock?
If you listen to any Mac podcast, or if you have had any interaction with the wonderful Mac community, this will be about the only opputunity, now that Macworld has gone, to meet a wonderful group of people. Although you can avoid me if you want to 🙂
Barry Fulk, the host of the Midwest Mac BBQ, and Mike Potter, the organizer behind the MacStock Conference & Expo, both in Chicago, talk about the genesis of their events, why they decided to combine them, and what you can expect to see, hear and eat when you attend.
