Chuck Joiner talks to two more Macstock 2016 speakers in the next installment of The Road to Macstock on MacVoices!
On The Road to Macstock, Jodi Spangler and Melissa Davis talk about their team presentation that will focus on senior citizens and computing. Both are independent Apple consultants, but often go far beyond those boundaries. How being women affects what they do, their approach to servicing their clients, and some surprising favorite tools for being successful business people are all part of the conversation.
Chuck Joiner hosts two Macstock 2016 speakers in this new installment of The Road to Macstock on MacVoices!
The Road to Macstock ran through a hallway in the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, where Don McAllister of ScreenCastsOnline and Allison Sheridan of the Nosillacast talked about their presentations, the event, and why Allison was wearing a furry tiara.
Thanks to Jeff Gamet for having Barry and me on TMO Daily Observations Podcast to discuss Macstock and the Midwest Mac BBQ! Really appreciate the focus this week on boutique conferences and what we can offer to the Apple Community!
Apple conferences are about more than traveling to a different city to learn something new. Today Mike Potter from Mac Stock and Barry Fulk from the Midwest Mac BBQ join Jeff Gamet to talk about the community experience we get from conferences and why that makes smaller events more appealing to some attendees.
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.
Macstock received a great write-up at BrettTerpstra.com this week that perfectly encapsulates why we decided to launch Barry’s Midwest Mac BBQ and Macstock last year.
I always loved attending Macworld, and almost entirely because of the people I’d meet and friends I’d see. Until yesterday, I thought the days we could all get together for some Mac love with a ton of my favorite Mac people were over.
Macstock is very much focused on what makes Apple products great: it’s users and that communal spirit folks traveled to Macworld each year to experience.
But we’re also focused on education. And with an expanded line-up of speakers this year, we’ve more than doubled the number of sessions covering topics as diverse as STEM (Science and Technology in Education), to getting the most from apps like OmniFocus and Preview, to more advanced topics like Macs in the Enterprise.
It’s really going to be a fantastic weekend for Apple fans and I hope everyone can make it. As Brett says, “the more the merrier”!
