Who Mac Automation Academy Is For


Mac Newbies

New Mac users who want to be Mac automators and power users. If you want to get the most out of Mac applications, features, and automations, Mac Automation Academy will help you get powered up. You will eventually go beyond clicking keyboard shortcuts and menu items, and start using automation software to trigger trigger things for you.   



Mac Professionals

Mac Automation Academy is very useful for people users who use their Mac for work and professional use. You might be a photographer, writer, lawyer, graphic designer, blogger, web developer. The Academy will teach you how to build workflows to automate redundant tasks.


Mac Geeks

Mac automation is also fun and easy to learn. When you create actions and macros, you can sit back and watch actions run. You will feel like a tech developer who is solving workflow problems. Once you get started creating actions and workflows, you will want to automate nearly everything you do. 

MacAutomationTips is now my go-to source for researching new apps to improve my efficiency for my legal business. I’ve learned the valuable lesson that if I can figure out even a minor hack to be more efficient– that minor hack can save hundreds of hours of inefficient work. Taking the BetterTouchTool course helped me automate tasks so I could spend more time face to face with my legal customers and my family rather than wasted in front of the computer.

Bakari! Just wanted to send you a huge shout of thanks for your site and for your Better Touch Tool course. I feel like I have entered a whole new world! Thanks for taking the time to create the course. BTT is so incredibly powerful, and I can’t believe how much faster it is than almost everything else. You rock! PS I would really love to see you do a course on Keyboard Maestro. Your teaching style is great, and I don’t feel like anyone has really done a great KM course anywhere yet.

MacAutomationTips is my go-to site when I’m wanting to automate a repetitive part of my daily workflow. The app suggestions have saved me an incredible amount of time, and helped standardized my workflows. Highly recommended. I was totally new to BetterTouchTool and was wondering how to learn more about it without getting overwhelmed by it’s many options. This course gets you started and shows you what’s possible, using easy-to-understand examples.
