Macstock 2016

I always loved attending Macworld, and almost entirely because of the people I’d meet and friends I’d see. Until yesterday, I thought the days we could all get together for some Mac love with a ton of my favorite Mac people were over. Then I was informed that a new conference (this is the second year) called Macstock was running. I’m so out of the loop.

It’s close enough to me that I can drive (Chicago area), and the price for a 2-day pass and ticket for the BBQ is very reasonably priced at $150. Plus, there’s early bird pricing until February 29th, using the code macstock50off to save $50.

The speaker list is wonderful:

  • Victor Cajiao (Terratech Podcast)
  • Dr. Robert Carter (the Tech Doctor Blog And Podcast)
  • Wally Cherwinski (Magic 22)
  • Adam Christianson (The MacCast)
  • Melissa Davis (themacmommy)
  • Dave Ginsburg (Suburban Chicago Apple Users)
  • Allison Hartley (The Tech Doctor Blog And Podcast)
  • Matt Hillyer
  • Chuck Joiner (MacVoices)
  • Julie Kuehl
  • Don Mcallister (ScreencastsOnline)
  • Tim Robertson (TechFan)
  • Mike Schmitz
  • Kirschen Seah
  • Guy Serle (mymac.com Podcast)
  • Allison Sheridan (nosillacast)
  • Jodi Spangler (Lakeshore Mac)

The conference runs from July 16th–17th. I’ve already booked my ticket and reserved lodging. The more the merrier, so go grab a ticket and join me!
