It’s not all about the Pentiums – Intro to Mac class now available

dcmacnutGreetings fellow Internet citizens. I’ll be teaching a class through the BSC Community Enrichment program designed to give new Mac users an introduction to the OS X operating system. The classes will be held 6 pm to 9 pm on September 11 and October 2 at the Bismarck Public School Career Academy. Both classes will have the same information, so sign up for the one that is most convent for you. You can learn more and register below.

The Mac vs PC debate has raged on for decades. I am the first to admit I am what some would call an Apple Fanboy, but I’m not here to evangelize Apple over Microsoft. What I do have is more than 20 years of experience with Apple and Mac computers, and more than a decade using OS X. Having been in your shoes myself once, I know what pitfalls to avoid and the tips and tricks to make your Mac experience seamless and (relatively) stress free.

The class is for anyone of any skill level. Whether you’re moving from a Windows-based PC or this is your first computer, this class is for you. Even seasoned users who want to get more out of their desktop or laptop will benefit. Register soon to reserve your space.

Topics covered in the class will include the most recent versions of OS X, Lion and Mountain Lion, and a brief preview of OS X Mavericks which Apple will release this fall.
