Automator Book Announced - Mac OS X Technology Guide to Automator


Automated Workflows, LLC is pleased to announce the availability of the "Mac OS X Technology Guide to Automator," written by Benjamin S. Waldie, president of Automated Workflows, LLC. Available From SpiderWorks, LLC.

Phoenixville, PA, May 24, 2005 --(PR.com)-- Automated Workflows, LLC is pleased to announce the availability of the "Mac OS X Technology Guide to Automator," written by Benjamin S. Waldie, president of Automated Workflows, LLC.

At the heart of Mac OS X Tiger, Automator is an application that brings the power of automation to the user level, with no programming required! Within Automator, users work with two main types of components, actions and workflows. Actions are built by developers, and each actionís purpose is to perform a single task, such as opening a file, checking your email, or rotating an image. Workflows are designed and constructed by users, by piecing together actions in a sequence, to create a virtual assembly line of automated tasks. Once constructed, workflows may be saved and triggered by a user in a variety of ways. Workflows may be run from within the Automator application, saved and run as an application, as a Folder Action, as an iCal alarm, as a print workflow, and more.

The "Mac OS X Technology Guide to Automator" provides detailed coverage of Automator from the perspective of both a user and a developer. The first section of the book is geared toward users, and covers all aspects of the Automator application itself. Users are guided through the use of the Automator interface, and are taught how to use the application to construct unique automated workflows, which can help users to become more efficient in their daily routines. The second section of the book is geared toward developers, and explains how to extend the power of Automator by creating custom actions. Developers are walked through the process of creating Automator actions in both AppleScript and Objective-C.

The "Mac OS X Technology Guide to Automator" is available in eBook format for $14.95, and in print form for $29.99 from SpiderWorks, LLC (www.spiderworks.com). The print version of the book is also available on Amazon.com.

Benjamin S. Waldie is also the author of "AppleScripting the Finder," an eBook also available from SpiderWorks, LLC. Benjamin writes a regular AppleScript column for MacTECH Magazine and X-Ray Magazine, and is president of Automated Workflows, LLC. Automated Workflows specializes in offering AppleScript and workflow automation consulting services to Macintosh-based businesses.

SpiderWorks, LLC specializes in how-to eBooks and printed books, providing quality content from respected authors at a low price.
