Pointers for Presenting AppleScript/Automator to Your Group
Phoenixville, Pennsylvania — January 3rd, 2006 — A “Pointers for Presenting AppleScript/Automator to Your Group” session will be held in the User Group Lounge at the Macworld Conference and Expo in San Francisco on Tuesday, January 10th, 2006 from 1:00 – 2:00 PM. This session will feature Ben Waldie, President of Automated Workflows, LLC, and will be opened to all Macintosh User Group members and leaders.
Many Macintosh users have heard of AppleScript and Automator, however, few are actually using these important automation tools. By putting these technologies to work, users can spend less time performing time consuming and repetitive tasks, leaving them more time to enjoy their Mac. This session will provide Macintosh user group members with an opportunity to ask questions about AppleScript and Automator, and to see how both of these technologies can be put into action in the everyday workflows of virtually every Macintosh user. This session will also provide pointers for how to present these topics at user group meetings.
