Come see the dynamic lineup of O'Reilly authors
appearing at Macworld Conference & Expo 2009.
Sebastopol, CA—"You'll never forget your first time," claim the organizers of the Macworld Conference & Expo, and with this year's lineup of authors and presentations, you're sure to remember it even if it's not your first visit to the show. The largest Mac event of its kind, MacWorld focuses on digital photography, graphic design, music, and all things Mac.

And O'Reilly Media--a leading content creator of cutting edge tech books, online services, magazines and conferences--will be there. We'll be joining over 500 other exhibitors and an expected 40,000+ conference attendees at San Francisco's Moscone Center, January 6-9, 2009.

Highlights in our booth (#2210) will include presentations from some of your favorite authors with Q&A sessions and book signings, as well as the newest books on Mac and digital media topics to peruse in between sessions. To see the full schedule of presentations, check out the official "O'Reilly at Macworld" website at

There are many items to pique your interest--from David Pogue's (iPhone: The Missing Manual, 2nd Edition) insights on the iPhone, to J.D. Biersdorfer's (iPod: The Missing Manual, 7th Edition) presentation on iPod and iTunes, to David Sawyer McFarland, author of the newly released Dreamweaver CS4: The Missing Manaul. Nancy Duarte (slide:ology) will also be there, talking about how to "pimp your slide" and give a better presentation, followed by Mikkel Aaland's awe-inspiring photos of his recent trip to Tasmania and the resulting book: Photoshop Lightroom 2 Adventure.

And don't miss the other sponsored events. There will be two "Ask the Experts" panels during the week:
