I’ve been attending the MCE Macintosh Computer Expo for years, and have been teaching there for the last four. The free Expo combines sessions and exhibitors covering all sorts of interesting stuff from RSS to iPhoto to Boot Camp. The speaker lineup is terrific (and not just because I participate). Notables include Bert Monroy, Jim Heid, and Joe Kissell.
The setting is pure Northern California. Santa Rosa Junior College hosts the event. It’s a beautiful campus with huge Oak trees and red brick buildings. Autumn is a great time to visit the North Coast. The shoreline is temperate, the wineries are in full swing, and there are lots of places to dine, shop, bike, and hike.
Bert Monroy and I are also leading workshops the day after MCE. Bert’s Painting with Photoshop and my Digital Photography Made Amazing are in depth half day courses coordinated by Santa Rosa Junior College. Both Bert and I are pulling out all the stops for these.
If you’re in Northern California on Oct. 7 & 8, please stop by the Expo. And if you need an excuse for a weekend get-away, I can’t think of a better one.
