I was asked to put the word out there for the CreativeTech conference, happening in Auckland this September 2010... So here it goes, the full release:
CreativeTech - the byte-sized technology event September 2010
CreativeTech is a new technology forum about all things Apple being held on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 September 2010 in Auckland.
The first of its kind in Australasia, the event is sponsored by AUT and Vodafone for Apple users of all levels.
It offers a broad mix of 'byte-sized' talks or presentations, from practical 'how to' showcases of the latest Apple, Adobe, FileMaker and Microsoft software, to advanced developing for the iPhone and iPad, with expert insights into tomorrow's technologies.
Attendees can check out the very latest in software, applications and mobile technology.
CreativeTech's Mark Webster, perhaps New Zealand's best-known Apple commentator, says the event will cover developing, design, music, filmmaking, education, business administration and more.
"From mum and dad home users wanting Mac tips, to the musicians and filmmakers of tomorrow, there's something for everyone, from practical to creative to visionary. CreativeTech will inform, entertain, showcase and engage."
Discussing tomorrow's technologies is keynote speaker, futurist Mark Pesce. From the US but now based in Australia, Pesce is a former Apple employee and early pioneer of virtual reality who regularly travels the globe presenting on the future of technology.
From Australia, MacTheMag editor (and former editor of Macworld Australia) Matthew JC Powell will give his take on the future for Apple and what new technologies we can expect in the years to come.
Other speakers include: twenty-two-year-old Australians and successful Mac and iPhone developers (Soulver and Picturesque) Zac Cohan and Nik Youdale; KIWA Media VP and QBook developer Roger Shakes; triathlete and iPhone developer Rob Beck, head of interactive technologies at AUT James Charlton; Leon Dahl from Rockshop; and educationalist Dorothy Burt.
With multiple streams and small-to-medium lecture sizes (150-200 seats), participants in the two-day event can pick and choose which sessions are right for them.
Attendees can also check out and purchase the latest gadgets in the Trade Stand Area, chill out in the CT Lounge between sessions and even get free help and advice at the Wired Dog Help Desk.
And watch out for a special screening at the neighbouring Academy Cinema of never before screened in New Zealand movie Welcome to Macintosh.
Tickets are $120 for one day, $200 for both and are available now. Seating is strictly limited so be in quick to secure your spot.
