Los Gatos, California – Sal Soghoian, host of the CMD-D Conference, today announced an exciting pre-conference Scripting Boot Camp taught by the legendary Ray Robertson the day before the first-ever CMD-D|Masters of Automation Conference. Designed for those who are new to automation, the CMD-D Scripting Boot Camp takes place at the Santa Clara Convention Center on August 8, 2017, which is the day before the CMD-D Conference (pronounced “Command-D”) itself.
“Ray Robertson is the perfect person to lead CMD-D’s Scripting Boot Camp,” said Sal Soghoian, conference co-founder and user-automation expert. “He’s patient and gentle, inspiring and simply brilliant. If I were new to automation, he’s who I’d want to teach me. I’m very excited to have him on board.”
“CMD-D brings together the Apple-related automation and scripting community,” says Paul Kent, conference co-founder and long-time general manager of Macworld Expo. “We’re excited to host Ray and provide those who are new to scripting with an opportunity to get up to speed very quickly at the CMD-D Scripting Boot Camp.”
The CMD-D Scripting Boot Camp will feature a full day of hands-on instruction on AppleScript and scripting on the macOS. Attendees will come away with an understanding of how the core scripting architecture on macOS works, as well as a fundamental understanding of how to write AppleScript scripts.
CMD-D is designed for anyone who uses automation, creates automation or develops software. The CMD-D Conference features an intense, full day of insight into the current state of automation technologies in the Apple ecosystem. Attendees of the CMD-D Conference can network and learn about topics such as powerful automation capabilities hiding in plain sight, Automator power-tricks, cutting-edge dual-platform automation for macOS and iOS, and more.
The CMD-D Scripting Boot Camp will be held August 8, 2017 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. The CMD-D|Masters of Automation Conference will be held August 9, 2017 at the same location. For more information or to register, visit their website.
