What do people say?

Right from the start, MacTech Conference became an International conference. Even the first MacTech Conference had attendees from a majority of states in the U.S., and wide range of countries from Sweden to Egypt to Japan. If you want to know more about first MacTech Conference, see the recap article by Rob Griffiths at Macworld or see some attendee comments below.

Attendee Comments

What are MacTech Conference registered attendees saying? See for yourself.


"MacTech is a true, "in the moment"-style tech conference. Last year's show was packed with the stuff that every developer and support tech wants to see, but the organizers managed to put on a panel about an issue that had broken in the news that very week! The smallish size means that there's an immediate energy and goal that you don't get from a conference with a cast of thousands.
     The best compliment I can give is that as soon as the show was over, I was already talking to the MacTech folks about coming back next year."

- Andy Ihnatko, Columnist
Chicago Sun-Times and Macworld


"As a developer, I'm really looking forward to this year's dev-track presentations—so much great stuff in every corner of the field. I expect my brain to grow three sizes over the Conference's three days."

- Peter Hosey


"If you are truly serious about supporting Apple in the enterprise, then this is the conference for you. At MacTech you will learn from some of the brightest minds in the mac community today". If you have not signed up yet, do your career a favor and sign up today".

- Adam Girardi, Systems Manager
University Communications


"If you're not attending MacTech Conference, you're missing out. MacTech is a fully immersive conference experience that is truly best of breed. I heavily enjoyed MacTech last year and am much looking forward to attending again this year."

- Mike Boylan
Robert Morris University


"Last year the MacTech Conference served as kind of an escape from the real world, with its surreal Universal City location, surrounded by hundreds of fellow Mac nerds. I'm excited to see how the conference evolves this year, and really looking forward to seeing many familiar faces from last year."

- Daniel Jalkut
Red Sweater


"I met a bunch of new people with new skills and new things to share and forged new friendships because of MT. I got a taste of tools that were new to me and that set me on a road to learning to add some new arrows to my quiver. Good sessions, good events, good food - what more could you want!"

- Pam Lefkowitz
Core Computing


"WWDC has sold out faster and faster every year, leaving Mac and iOS developers with few options. The MacTech Conference has stepped up to fill this void with a rich selection of speakers and topics. As a developer, there's no better place to hone your skills, learn new things, and network directly with your peers. Simply stated, this is a must-attend event."

- Boisy G. Pitre
Tee Boy


"What I like most about MacTech Conference is the attention to detail, opportunity to network, and the high level of the sessions and other attendees. This year, I'm looking forward to engaging and sharing information with other like-minded individuals, the amazing sessions that are scheduled, and the wonderful extra-curricular activities that MacTech has planned for us. If you want to be "in the know", network with amazing talent, and attend sessions presented by leading industry experts and high-level sysadmins, then you cannot miss MacTech Conference."

- Luis Giraldo, Director of Apple Solutions
Fully Managed


"As an Apple Professional, I could not imagine missing MacTech Conference. They have successfully built a conference around speakers who are amazing OS X developers and innovative IT experts. You will walk away from the conference with a head full of knowledge, inspiring ideas, new friends, and a better connection to the community in which we all rely."

- Nathan Toups

"What I liked most about MacTech was being in a room full of people smarter than me. Seriously though, it was an incredible place to meet and network with professionals in the Mac industry. Where else can you bowl with the Adobe Mac enterprise team and play games to win tickets for a disco ball to give to the Worldwide Mac Operations Dude for Google? I'm looking forward to cramming my head full of new content regarding Lion, iOS, and the future of mobile computing. I'm also excited to reconnect with people from last year and meet new people too!
     MacTech is a different kind of a tech conference. It focuses on the things we as professionals want to learn, but leaves time to network and have fun. You should attend this event because you'll not only walk away with a head stuffed full of knowledge, but also some new friends!"

- Derick Okihara, IT Technician
Mid-Pacific Institute


"A great opportunity to meet face-to-face and discuss problems and real-world solutions with IT professionals from around the world."

- Mary Norbury-Glaser, Director of IT
UCDenver


"MacTech Conference promises to have all the knowledge sharing of other events, but without the distractions of that come with companies targeting consumers. I am looking forward to seeing my fellow Apple Consultants Network members, as well as putting faces to so many other new names I've seen in the past year."

- Allen Hancock
Apple Consultants Network List Co-Moderator
President, Mac Consulting Group, Inc.
Founder of Watchman Monitoring


MacTech Conference Comments

What did MacTech Conference attendees say after the event?

"It gave me the inspiration I've been needing to get out of my comfort zone and take the next steps to learn new tools and information."

"Aside from the informative IT Track sessions, during the meals and breaks, hearing other conference attendees discuss how they overcame many of the same obstacles that I am facing."

"Meeting people who do similar work to myself and realizing that they face many of the same challenges and solve them with a variety of knowledge bases, skills and budgets. I had the opportunity to meet some really smart tech who can do some mind-blowing stuff to get work done."

"For me, it's always about being in that group of like-minded people."

"Hearing from enterprise system administrators (and developers of tools) about best practices in managing large groups of Macs."

"The small size of the conference combined with the free meals made it much easier to connect with other people in the field. This is something lacking at other events where it's just a sea of people."

"Being able to talk directly with the session presenters and with other Mac admins."

"The collection of Mac brainiacs all in one place."

"Fostering new relationships and strengthening others."

"Amazing job guys. It was as if you've been organizing conferences for years. The bar is set amazingly high for future years."

"It was awesome, looking forward to registering for next year!"
