Mac OS X Conference 2003
G5s, Panther, Let's Go! -- The first day of the Mac OS X Conference focused on tutorials, such as introductions to Cocoa, Mac OS X Java, Rendezvous, and AppleScript, just to name a few. Apple Developer Connection provided the G5s in the Rendezvous Lounge, and O'Reilly supplied the expert speakers. A strong start to this much-anticipated event.
Day Two: Rock 'n' Roll -- Tim O'Reilly and David Pogue kicked off Tuesday's activities at the Mac OS X Conference. It was a day of many firsts, including the opening of the bookstore, Expo floor, and the sessions. Smart attendees got there early and grabbed a seat because many venues were standing room only.
Confessions of the World's Largest Switcher -- After encountering roadblocks from Dell and IBM, Dr. Srinidhi Varadarajan went to Apple, and 24 hours later, had a commitment to deliver--within two months--the G5's he'd need to build a Supercomputer. At this week's O'Reilly Mac OS X Conference, Dr. Varadarajan reveals the details behind what it took to build Virginia Tech's G5 Supercomputer. Find out why he says you can expect to see a lot more G5 clusters in the future.
Fully Loaded and On Target -- Dynamic speakers such as Dr. Srinidhi Varadarajan and Andy Ihnatko were big hits with the sophisticated Mac audience at the conference. This is a show by Mac geeks for Mac geeks.
From Keynotes to Congregation: The Real Mac OS X Conference -- The sessions and the keynotes are what get us to the conferences. But once everyone is there, chemistry among the attendees and speakers create a new event different than anything that could be planned -- especially at a Mac gathering. Here's what happened at the second Mac OS X Conference in Santa Clara, CA.
Finishing Touches -- The Mac OS X Conference was full of life to the very last breath of the event. Here are just a few highlights from Wednesday evening and Thursday. Hope to see you in these pictures next year!
