MacAd.uk is first up in 2017. Any Mac Admin able to get to London is encouraged to attend.

MacTech Pro events are a wonderful way for any Professional Apple Tech to fill their toolbox. Each event is just one day (or a day & a half if you attend the Proactive Support Professional certification class) so the Pro event fits well into many travel calendars. We also enjoy the evening gatherings which typically happen each Tuesday & Wednesday evening near MacTech events.

Aces Conf is holding its third event. This time Apple Consultants from all over will converge and discuss how they are growing their businesses from time and materials or break-fix, adding Proactive Support, and many will end up kicking off their own Managed Service offering.

PSU Mac Admins is a place for IT professionals from the Education, Corporate, and Consulting arms to join in and see what’s new in the world of system deployment and mass-administration.

Events hosted by JAMF and FileWave are great venues to get news and instruction right from the horse’s mouth. If you use, or are considering adding, the Casper Suite for your Mac & iOS devices or FileWave’s cross-platform system administration toolbox as part of your IT practice, there’s no better place to dive in and even get certified.

This November, MacTech will hold its 7th annual world-class event in Los Angeles, CA. It’s a week long, deep dive into many of the issues which slow down professional Apple techs everywhere.

Adding in local events can help fill in the gaps, and we’re happy to support MacMeetups.com, run by Adam Codega of Swipely fame. If you’re looking for a local meetup, check there. Don’t see one? start one! We’re happy to support local meetups as well, reach out to support if you’d like more details.

Whichever event(s) you choose, we’re sure you’ll leave knowing more… more information, and more people. It’s a great way to jump-start your career and re-ignite the drive which behind it all: knowing and helping great people.
