I'm presenting two sessions at the Penn State MacAdmins conference next week:
- Mac OS X Automation Workshop - Thursday May 23, 2013 - 9:15am - 12:00pm - With AppleScript, Automator, and Services in Mac OS X, there’s more reason than ever before to begin automating time consuming and repetitive tasks. In this session, we’ll explore the potential of each of these automation technologies, discuss their benefits, and see how you can use them to boost your productivity and efficiency. Join us as we dive right in, begin creating Automator workflows, building services, and writing some simple AppleScripts. Take time to finally learn how to take advantage of these unique technologies in a relaxed “learn-by-doing” class.
- Giving Your AppleScripts a Face Lift - Friday May 24, 2013 10:45am - 12:00pm - You’ve been using AppleScript Editor on your Mac for years. You’ve developed dozens of useful scripts. It’s time to take those scripts to the next level by migrating them to AppleScriptObjC (Cocoa-AppleScript). In this session, we will expore the potential of this powerful technology. See first-hand how you can use Xcode to develop native Cocoa applications using AppleScript, complete with interfaces that allow you to capture data and provide detailed user feedback. In addition, learn how to add greater power to your AppleScript-based applications by integrating directly with Cocoa.
If you're attending, be sure and find me to say "Hi."
