  • Backup strategies,
  • Introduction to Automator.

Can you provide attendee with a Mac?

We assume that in order to participate in our training you should have your own Apple-branded computer. If you do, please bring it to the training, but first make sure that it has macOS 10.15 Catalina installed. In case of portable Mac computers, do not forget about the power adapter! If you, however, own a Mac mini, iMac, iMac Pro or a Mac Pro ? you can bring it too! ;)

If you do not yet have a Mac or for any reason cannot bring it, we can provide you with a Mac for the duration of the training at additional charge. Please consult training regulations for more information.

Am I allowed to record the training?

No. You can take notes, make a few pictures, but we do not agree on making audio or video recording of our training delivery.

Will I receive an adequate certificate confirming my participation?

Yes, you will receive a certificate issued by the fine crew of MacGadka podcast.

We have to, however, very strongly emphasize that our training is an an independent endeavor, not authorized, sponsored, or otherwise endorsed by Apple. Apple-authorized courses cover a larger scope of material, and are delivered over multiple days. More information about Apple-authorized courses organized by Apple Authorized Training Providers can be found at

Does the stated price include the meals?

Naturally! During the break at 2 PM, we all attend the dinner, and at all times one can grab a croissant or some other snack from the coffee break area.

Will there be Internet access provided?

Of course! Do you really believe that there wouldn't be? ;) But, please don't think that you will find the time to visit Facebook! ;)

Are you planning any additional editions of MacGadka Training?

We have nothing to communicate at this point in time. ;) Out future decisions will definitely be announced in MacGadka, so please stay tuned! :)

Will I be allowed to make a selfie with you?
