FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dearborn, MI — March 1, 1999 — Sometimes even the greatest minds in
the business lose track of time. Maybe they procrastinate a little
too long, or maybe they get tied up in projects.
Whatever the cause, MacHack (http://www.machack.com/) is here to
help. For years, discounted registration for this developers
conference has extended well into the spring and up to tax time. This
year is no different.
Attendees that register for MacHack 1999 by Midnight on April 15 will
purchase their registrations at a $475. This represents a $50
discount off of the regular conference rate.
“Even at the regular rate, MacHack is a bargain,” said Peter N.
Lewis, genius behind Stairways Software and dedicated MacHacker.
“With the discount, things are even better. No other conference
offers the kind of varied learning and networking opportunities that
Developers large and small can benefit from the conference’s informal
atmosphere and unique environment maximize the opportunities for
exchange of ideas and engineering techniques. The opportunity for
one-on-one interaction with other engineers makes this a must attend
conference for anyone serious about Macintosh or leading edge
development issues. MacHack also presents a rare opportunity for
those looking to hire the best and brightest up-and-coming software
Of course, it’s not really a conference without sessions and this
year’s topics include:
-Late-breaking Apple System Technologies
-Rapid Application Development Environments
-Mozilla/Open Source Topics
-CodeWarrior Special Issues
-Coding to Support Mac OS Changes
-Palm Development Topics
-Marketing for/by the Independent Developer
The MacHax Group will again be hosting the legendary ‘Best Hack
Contest’. Competitors vie for the respect and admiration of their
peers as well as the coveted ‘Victor A-Trap’ trophy. For many
attendees, this event alone justifies travel to MacHack. The contest
begins at midnight on Friday, June 25, and lasts into the wee hours
of Saturday morning as contestants roll out their hacks to an ever
more demanding audience.
MacHack, in its fourteenth year, remains centered around cutting edge
software development. Each year the conference brings together
well-known names in the software business, as well as many students
and upstarts whose names we’ll know soon enough, and fosters
interaction between all of the attendees. MacHack’s uniqueness
derives from the informal feel of the conference and the LIVE coding
that occurs around-the-clock during the conference.
MacHack 1999 will take place June 23-26 in Dearborn, Michigan.
