When:  Monday June 29th, 2009 from 7p—9p

How:  Through the bottomless Mac knowledge of Mr. Joel A. Brock.  Joel has been a Mac professional for almost 10 years.  He has used his Mac for graphic design, website and web application development, software programming, and database/network administration.  He spends an inordinate amount of time reading about emerging technologies and workflow hacks.  So he thinks he knows a thing or two about working on Macs.  In fact, he’s pretty sure he knows more than you.  Luckily he’s not prideful and is willing to share his vast oceans of Mac experience with you!

Why:  Because a friend asked for a Mac training and it seemed like a good idea to open it up to others who could benefit from such a training.  And because it’ll be lots of fun!
