MacWorld & MacIT 2012 Wrap-up

I presented at the MacWorld,/iWorld, MacIT conference with my colleague, Cary Thomas in San Francisco last week.  We presented on deploying Apple (Mac, iPhone, iPad) inside IBM.  This was the first time that I attended the event and I wasn't disappointed.  While Apple didn't participate and there were no Apple announcements, they was still plenty to take in including:

  • Product showcase.  Cases, speakers, software.  More products focused on iPhone/iPad than Mac.  eWeek slideshow has a good overview
  • Breakout sessions.  The MacIT breakout sessions (where I spent most of my time) focused on enterprise deployments.   However, I attended some excellent MacWorld/iWorld sessions as well on a wide-range of topics from subject-matter experts
  • Networking.  Plenty of receptions both at the Moscone Center West and at nearby hotels to speak with other attendees.
