“Explore” is the theme of this year’s Springfest event, one of two signature annual gatherings of the Hawaii Macintosh & Apple User Society (HMAUS). Taking place on the campus of Kapiolani Community College, Springfest is a free, casual conference that offers presentations and workshops inspired by Apple technology. Topics include photography and digital art, as well as home networking and computer security.
The main attraction will be a “Made In Hawaii” panel, showcasing apps and technology rooted here in the islands. The great Brian Dote of Tapiki — creator of Sushi Star, Movie Buddy, and other great apps — will be featured, as well as Andy Yip and Jane Zeng, who created the DaBus app, and Zubin Menon of Oceanit. Russell Ogi, a 3D printing guru, rounds out the panel.
