June will be “bustin’ out all over” and Dave Marra will make his twelfth visit to LIMac for our Annual Dave Marra Experience. For those new to LIMac or anyone living under a rock for the past decade, Dave Marra is an Apple Senior Systems Engineer who has “conducted thousands of technology presentations, keynote addresses and workshops for schools, Mac and PC user groups, businesses and other professional organizations across the United States and Canada. Certified as both an Apple Certified Technical Coordinator and an Apple Certified Systems Administrator, his specialty areas include digital multimedia, internet technologies, accessibility and Mac/PC integration. For more information about Dave, please visit his web site at www.marrathon.com.”
This year’s Marra-palooza will include as much as Dave can legally tell us about what happened at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, which ends on the day of his visit. WWDC is where software developers “get an in-depth look at what’s next in iOS and OS X, and learn how to take [their] apps to the next level…connect with Apple engineers and fellow developers for an incredible week of inspiration.” A bit of lofty prose by Apple, but it is the conference that spawns a plethora of rumors and with luck Dave will be able to pass on some good tidbits that are not just rumor.
The second part of Dave’s presentation is titled, “iWork for Mac and iPad - Impressive Documents, Presentations and Spreadsheets!” Dave says, “Discover how easy and fun word processing, spreadsheets and presentations can be with iWork. The iWork productivity suite includes Pages, Numbers and Keynote for both Mac and iPad, so you can create a document on one device and edit it on another. Also discover iCloud, to store your music, photos, documents, and more and wirelessly push them to all your devices. Explore iWork today!”
There will be no SIGs at this month’s meeting, but both Bradley and the MacBasics guys will hold Q&A sessions in the usual meeting rooms before Dave’s presentation. As usual, we will hold our ever popular raffle at the close of the evening, with some great prizes. I don’t need to tell you that this will be a super meeting, so make sure to plan to attend.
