MacTech Conference is known for packing in a lot of content as well as ample time for networking, activities, and more. We don’t force talks to conform to an arbitrary block of time that works for the conference, but focus on what’s best for the attendee and presenter. Due to this, we list approximate times, but it’s typically a good estimation. This invites discussion from participants and allows a natural flow to the event.
