MacTech Conference

MacTech is held in Los Angeles each November, designed for a niche community of world-class professionals working with Apple technology across contexts, disciplines, and cultures. Attendees come from countries all over the world for the 3-day conference, filled with elevating workshops, presentations, activities, and networking opportunities.

I had the honor of being invited to speak there last year and I can confirm –> it’s everything it’s cracked up to be. It is a first-class experience, thanks to the efforts of Neil Ticktin and his team.

I’m humbled to share that my talk was posted recently, among the impressive list of presenters that included Trammell Hudson, whose work I’ve followed and been grateful for for years, on Thunderstrike and especially Magic Lantern firmware from the moment I acquired my first Canon 5DMKII back in 2005.

Needless to say, I was filled with gratitude when, immediately upon my arrival, I found myself shaking hands with him and having lunch together before my presentation. The feelings of gratitude persisted as I later on presented my thoughts on Resilience Strategy to him and the others in the audience that day.

MacTech is truly a global community of Apple technology professionals.

They’ve invited me back and I’m excited to stay for the whole conference this year, as last year I flew in the morning of, presented, and flew out after due to other obligations.

Here’s a link they gave me to share that offers you discounted pricing ($700 off): https://conference.mactech.com/?rid=IKnow-ChadCalease. Just so you know, I don’t get anything out of your using that link except the satisfaction that I helped you save some cheddar + turned someone else onto Neil’s brainchild, which is MacTech.

Meanwhile, I’m happy to share my contribution to last year’s conference here. It’s almost 50 minutes in length, so find a quiet, comfortable spot somewhere if you like: Cybersecurity is Dead. Long Live Cyber Resilience.
