MacVoices #17220: Neil Ticktin Previews The 2018 MacTech Conferences

Neil Ticktin joins us for a wrap-up of the 2017 MacTech Conference, and a look ahead at 2018. Neil goes over some of the highlights of this year’s gathering of Mac developers in L.A., including some off-topic but interesting questions regarding robotics. It is obviously early to think about next year’s event, but Neil already has some ideas, and also covers some information on the regional versions of their conference – content, instructors, and why the regionals supplement, and don’t replace, MacTech 2018.
