[prMac.com] Collingswood, New Jersey - Registrations are now open for AppleScript Pro Sessions in St. Pete Beach, Florida, for April 12-16, 2010. After 11 successful events, the sessions will be coming to Florida again with a conference hotel directly on the Gulf Coast in the Tampa/St. Petersburg area. The sessions offer a full introduction to AppleScript, including the changes in Snow Leopard, and are aimed at both beginners and advanced scripters.
"In OS X 10.6, AppleScript users now have direct access to the world of Cocoa via AppleScriptObjC," said Shane Stanley, session co-leader. "This brings enormous power, but it also makes it relatively simple to add sophisticated interfaces to AppleScript scripts."
In addition to covering automation of publishing mainstays InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and Acrobat, the 2010 sessions will cover other applications including Microsoft Excel, FileMaker Pro and BBEdit. "We realize many scripters in the prepress industry and elsewhere receive data in Excel format, and store data in FileMaker Pro," said Ray Robertson, session co-leader. "And writing scripts that control more than one application is one of the great strengths of AppleScript."
Past AppleScript Pro sessions have drawn attendees from New Zealand, Europe, and Central America, as well as from Fortune 500 companies in the U.S. The classes are suitable for both new and experienced scripters, with the emphasis on practical skills that can be used across a range of applications.
Pricing and Availability:
The five-day sessions will be held at Dolphin Beach Resort in St. Pete Beach, Florida. A special conference rate offers a limited number of hotel rooms starting at $99/night. Pricing starts at $1500 (USD) for any three days, with a special discounted package of $1800 for all five days. The early bird rate is available through March 5, unless sold out earlier.
