The Meat on OS Issues
Mac OS 8.6, OS X, Palm OS, they’re all here. Mac OS coverage from
inside Infinite Loop is of course essential and this year is no
different, but the way to Mac OS X is paved with NeXTStep and we have
the developers to prove it. MacHack has scheduled NeXTStep veterans
to cover these core issues. Learn to support this once and future OS
from masters like Andrew Stone. Palm OS coverage is courtesy of Palm
insiders, Jesse Donaldson and Steve Lemke.

Time Running Out
There is still time for coders of all skill levels to join the
activities at MacHack, but since the conference is June 23-26 you’d

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 and the LIVE coding that occurs
around-the-clock during the conference.
MacHack 1999 will take place June 23-26 in Dearborn, Michigan.
