MacTech Conference 2016 is reaching for the stars—or at least Marshall Smith, the keynote speaker, is. Mr. Smith is NASA’s Director of Cross-Program Systems Integration and Chief Engineer for Exploration Systems Development, as part of Human Explorations and Operations Mission Directorate. That’s all government-speak for saying he’s the guy who coordinates engineering United States manned space flight efforts across the agency’s many employees, contractors, and locations. He’ll be talking about his insights on cross-culture and cross-organization collaboration from his perspective as one of NASA’s top men. MacTech Conference 2016 runs from November 16th through November 18th in Los Angeles and is one of the go-to events from Apple consultants, IT pros, and enterprise pros. Early bird registration is still open, so you can save US$400 off the event—plus an extra $200 using TMO’s special discount—if you sign up now.
