Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

The world of Apple is bored with me (or at least I am) and so I think it’s about time for some new blood in the Apple speaker community. I’d be happy to help a few talented MacAdmins get some exposure in whatever way I can. If you’d like any help in preparing a presentation or a proposal, please feel free to reach out!

I’m obviously experimenting with other venues to contribute content to. Just posted an article called: The Changing World Of Technical Writing And Publishing on Buzzed. Enjoy!

Conferences for Apple Systems Administrators have been popping up all over the place. There are the ones that have been around forever, like MacIT and then there are new conferences that sprung up in the past year, such as ACES and MacDevOps. Some have reached maturity, such as MacTech and Penn State Mac Admins. Now, we have conferences in North America, Europe and Australia (so only 4 continents to go). So, I made a page listing them. And a Pinterest board. The page is available here. And that Pinterest board:

Follow Charles’s board Mac IT Conferences on Pinterest.

I also took the liberty of listing a couple of conferences that are platform agnostic, as I’ve been seeing Mac and iOS sessions pop up in them. Also, if I forgot any conferences, just let me know.
