August is done and dusted

So I am super-happy to report back that our August event went off without a single hitch!

This tweet summed it up!

Our first international speaker, Allen Hancock, was incredibly talented in his talk.

Not only was he able to demo the entire process of managing and monitoring any Mac with his amazing software, Watchman Monitoring, but also managed to multi-task with me sending him questions from the audience through Skype. Very impressed Allen…it clearly was not your first time :)

Don’t forget to use the coupon code MACTECHSA if you sign up and test out the Watchman Monitoring software to get $100 off the usual price.

We had our new resident App expert, Lynette Hundermark, share her apps of the month with us, which I think the audience thoroughly enjoyed.

The Apps that Lynette reviewed were:

  1. Hours by Tapity
  2. Omni Plan by Omni Group


Our venue was the uber-creative space, Friends of Design - Academy of Digital Arts.

Philipp Shmid, Marketing Manager for FOD, was incredibly hospitable while hosting our little meetup, and we are forever-grateful.


Our amazing sponsors kept the audience happy with some great giveaways, not to mention our amazing media partners supporting us online.

Our beneficiary, iPads for Lion Hearts, will once again receive all the greenbacks that we managed to raise from the R50 entrance fee.

Thanks very much to everyone that joined us and paid the fee, it is truly appreciated!


The feedback from the group has been positive so far, and we are so happy to hear all the comments.

Here are 2 of the social media posts:

Mac Tech SA August is happening…with an international flair

I am so proud of how our little group has begun to flourish as a respected monthly user forum.

The month of August is going down with a bang!


I have been very fortunate in connecting with Watchman Monitoring Inc Founder, Allen Hancock, for this meet up, and other ventures.


Allen is no noob to the Apple world, and if anything, can be hailed as a veteran.

His software, Watchman Monitoring, allows for remote monitoring and reporting on Macs within your office or home network.

Allen will be gracing us with his presence on Thursday evening, albeit digitally, to speak about this amazing software of his, and answer all the techie questions we can throw at him. I am so excited to hear what Allen has to say!

Lynette Anthony will be Wow’ing us with her Apps of the month from Useful and Beautiful, so bring your iOS devices with to follow her advice.


And as always, your R50 entrance fee will be sent straight onto our well deserving beneficiary, iPads for Lion Hearts.
