The organizers of AppleScript Pro Sessions, a weeklong training event designed around Apple’s system-level scripting environment, have added new names to the guest roster. The event will be held in Monterey, CA, May 13-17.
Ethan Wilde, author of “AppleScript for Applications” and “AppleScript for the Internet,” will drop by on Monday and sign copies of his books. All attendees of the session will get a copy of the first book; signed copies of both tomes will be given away on other days as door prizes.
Peter Boctor from Adobe will also be attending AppleScript Pro Sessions. He’s the engineer responsible for scripting in Adobe InDesign. The document layout program is one of the applications featured at AppleScript Pro.
Wilde and Boctor join Script Debugger developer Mark Alldritt, author and Facespan support representative Shirley Hopkins, and Apple reps as guests. Attendees will have the chance to speak to some of the people who help to shape AppleScript. And “the feedback works both ways,” according to host Ray Robertson of Scripting Matters.
AppleScript Pro provides introductory training plus application-related sessions on using AppleScript for automation, particularly in the publishing industry. You can attend individual days for US$400 each, or three or more days at a discounted price. Applications covered in AppleScript Pro include Adobe Photoshop, Quark XPress, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Acrobat, BBEdit and FileMaker Pro.
A limited number of places are still available. For details,
