The Mac Computer Expo is coming to Petaluma, CA on Oct. 3, 2009 featuring 10 speakers and a couple dozen vendors. The free event is celebrating its silver anniversary, entertaining Mac enthusiasts for over two decades.
In addition to Tom Negrino, Dori Smith, Jim Heid, and a host of other Mac luminaries, I'll be presenting two sessions focusing on iPhoto. My afternoon session, How to Set Up an iPhoto Referenced Library, shows you how to establish a library of master images on an external hard drive, then point iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom, and Bridge to that same set of masters. This eliminates the problem of migrating your iPhoto library to other applications, plus it frees up your Mac's hard drive. You have to see this demo to believe it.
Vendors include Griffin, O'Reilly Media, Ambrosia, Microsoft, Parallels, Intuit, and many more. I'll be signing books at the O'Reilly booth after each of my sessions. So if you want your book signed, bring it along. O'Reilly will also have my latest titles on sale (at a discounted price) in the booth.
If you're within striking distance of the North Bay on Oct. 3, then check out this speaking schedule and make your plans. It's a great way to spend a Saturday, and the price is right (free!).
