Mac Dayz 2010 Wrap Up

Just want to thank everyone that helped make Mac Dayz 2010 possible. We had some wonderful sessions and guests.

Cali Lewis at SMU

Cali Lewis gave a great insight into what it takes to produce a daily podcast show. Her tips for those just starting out were priceless. I heard from a faculty member attending that it was nice to has someone reinforce the concepts that he had been stressing all semester. One student commented on his blog:

“The event was really informative and helpful, with a great host to pull it all together. I feel like the advice she gave really helped show how video podcast can be started and how to manage them effectively. I am looking forward to seeing if anyone in the crowd was inspired and what comes from this.”

After the “Developing iPhone Apps with Steve Hayman” session, I felt like I could easily produce a iPhone App. In fact, I attended the repeat session with my laptop in hand and successfully made the web app that accessed the Apple Trailers site, but failed miserably when building the SMU app after I missed a step. That’s Steve Hayman’s gift; He makes it look so easy.

Thanks to everyone who came out for the event.
