Attend our hands-on, one-day Automator Workshop to learn how to put Automator to work for you! Automator Workshop covers everything you need to learn to get started and be productive with Automator. Learn how to build Automator workflows to automate just about everything you do with your Macintosh. Participants complete hands-on exercises building powerful, real-world Automator workflows.


Each participant receives a Workshop Kit containing a printed Workshop Guide with the agenda, printouts of the workshop slides along with an area for note taking, and the workshop exercises (and solutions). Also included is a CD containing all of the workshop material along with a complimentary eBook copy of Hanaan Rosenthal's outstanding "Discovering Automator," and an impressive collection of third party Automator actions.


Automator is Apple's point-and-click application for graphically building automated workflows. Automator is not for geeks, programmers or nerds – it is for any Macintosh user who wants to quickly and easily automate their manual, time-consuming, repetitive, error-prone and boring tasks.
