Calling all Apple professionals!
After the Holiday Madness, Mac Tech SA is back!
March was to date the most successful event held by Mac Tech SA, and we are going to push hard to top it!
We have been extremely lucky in being able to secure an amazing venue for the month of May, at the state-of-art Parklands College.
Parklands College is part of the One2One initiative from Apple, allowing the college to use Apple products in their day-to-day education with the students of all grades.
Definitely our kind of school!
We have an amazing evening lined up once again, with great speakers, and plenty of goodies to giveaway from our generous sponsors!
As always, the entrance fee will be 50 South African Rands, which will be donated to the amazing NGO, iPads for Lion Hearts.

ICT Network Manager, Parklands College
With almost a decade in the IT industry, and certifications to boot, Cavan is an expert when it comes to implementing ICT solutions for the various networks he has worked on.
Thanks to a 5 year run with Evolv Networks, Cavan gained priceless experience ranging across multiple platforms.
This allowed him to take on the role as ICT Network Manager at the Apple One-to-One Parklands College.
Parklands College uses a range of different technologies, but manages to run the core network on Apple infrastructure and solutions.
Casper has been integral in Cavan's approach to managing the network effectively, implementing a full BYOD solution, using Apple products.
Michael Da Silva
Managing Partner, Tablet POS
Michale Da SilvaManaging Partner, TabletPOS
Michael started his seasoned career in IT as the cable guy in 1992, but managed to work his way all the way to the top to become a partner in the IT firm he worked for.
After the firm was bought out, he continued to grow, and became the national sales manager for the group.
This allowed Michael to gain experience in the POS industry since 1992 to date, ranging from various verticals, including the Pharmaceutical, Retail, Cellular, Fuel Courts and Clothing industries.
After an opportunity arose for him to become an agent for the amazing iKentoo Hospitality POS Product, he eventually left the firm where he deveoped his experience and skills, and has grown from strength to strength.
With their first live implementation in May of 2012, they have only begun to scratch the surface in addressing the need in South Africa for a purely mobile POS solution that runs on Apple products.
Although working in the shadow of the big 5 POS vendors in South Africa, he has managed to grow his distribution to include Cape Town, Johannesburg and now Durban.
