MacTech Boot Camp 2011 coming to Dallas, Boston, L.A., ChicagoAfter a successful MacTech Boot Camp conference in San Francisco last month, four more seminars for consultants and techs supporting the home and small business markets will be held this year in Dallas, Boston, Los Angeles and Chicago.
MacTech Magazine on Friday announced the four new MacTech Boot Camp 2011 seminars, following on the heels of what it called an "incredible success" at the first-ever MacTech Conference in November, and a sold out MacTech Boot Camp in San Francisco in January.
The one-day Boot Camp seminars cater to professionals who support the home user and small business market. It is a single-track, hotel-based seminar that is specifically geared to serve the needs of consultants and techs wanting to better serve their clients.

"Last month, MacTech Boot Camp San Francisco 2011 sold out. We know that many consultants and techs in the market focus on serving the home and small business communities. We've designed the MacTech Boot Camp curriculum just for them," said Neil Ticktin, editor-in-chief and publisher, MacTech Magazine.
"If you're already serving the home and small business Mac users, or want to be, MacTech Boot Camp expert-taught sessions will help you to learn best practices that will not only make you more productive, but also more successful. And, for those Windows consultants that want to know more about the Mac, this is a great way to get exposed to a completely different type of market."
