If you’re interested in learning more about AppleScript and you’ll be in or around Monterey, Calif. from May 13-17, 2002, you might be interested in signing up for Shane Stanley and Ray Robertson’s
AppleScript Pro Sessions. The five-day training event will feature in-depth coverage of how AppleScript works with major applications.
Stanley is with Myriad Communications of Melbourne, Australia. Robertson is from Scripting Matters in Atlanta, Ga. They’ll be joined by Mark Alldritt of Late Night Software and other special guests.
The promoters said that the AppleScript Pro Sessions event is suited for both beginning and experienced scripters, and that the class emphasis is on practical scripting information that translates across a range of applications. The first day of the sessions is an introduction to AppleScript; subsequent days examine scripting real-world applications. QuarkXPress, InDesign, Photoshop 7 and Mac OS X will all be detailed, according to Robertson. FileMaker Pro, Illustrator, Acrobat and the Finder will also be examined.
Pricing is US$400 per day; discount packages are available for students attending three days or more. Hotel reservations cost $99 per night, and students are encouraged to register early to guarantee a room.
