“MacTech Magazine” (https://www.mactech.com) and iDeveloper TV (part of The Mac Developer Network Limited) has announced that “MacTech” is acquiring the US version of NSConference and merging it into MacTech Conference: For Apple IT Pros and Developers.
While iDeveloper TV will continue to operate NSConference UK independently, NSConference organizers will now be a part of the MacTech Conference team. The yet-to-be-announced MacTech Conference 2011 is slated for fall 2011.
NSConference UK will be held March 21-23 in Wokefield Park outside of London. The sold-out event focuses on sessions presented by some of the world’s top Mac OS X and iOS developers.
MacTech Conference 2011 will be a US-based event that delivers content for both IT pros and OS X/iOS developers on the Mac. NSConference’s head, Steve Scott (“Scotty”), will join the MacTech Conference 2011 team as Sessions Chair for the Developer Track working with Edward Marczak (who will continue to oversee the IT Track as well as the sessions overall) and Neil Ticktin and Andrea Sniderman, who oversee the entire event.
“It’s clear that we hit a home run with MacTech Conference 2010. When attendees give the event a standing ovation at the close, and 100% say that they would recommend the conference, you know you’ve done something right,” says Ticktin, editor-in-chief/publisher of “MacTech Magazine.” “I’m incredibly proud of our team for 2010. And, with Scotty joining us as Sessions Chair for the Developer Track, it just gets that much better.”
“I couldn’t be happier to work with someone so well-known and respected in the Mac development world,” adds Marczak, executive editor, “MacTech Magazine” and MacTech Conference Overall Sessions Chair. “Working together, we’re going to be able to serve the Mac community much better than working separately.”
“NSConference has proven its ability to bring great content to a great base of attendees,” says Scott from iDeveloper TV and Developer Sessions Chair for MacTech Conference 2011. “This deal allows iDeveloper TV to bring its intimate relationship with Mac OS X and iOS developers together with MacTech’s excellent conference skills to provide a incredible event for developers based in the USA.”
