First Look: Mac OS X Mavericks Essential Training

Mac OS X Mavericks

You may have heard the news. Mac OS X Mavericks, the new version of Apple’s desktop operating system, was released yesterday.

Of course, lynda.com will release a brand new full-length Mac OS X Mavericks Essential Training course very soon—but we’re so excited about Mavericks that we’re sharing two movies from the first chapter of the course right now on lynda.com, and anyone can watch it for free. Learn how to set up your Mavericks system, from installing the OS and getting your peripherals installed to navigating keyboard shortcuts and trackpad gestures.

For our blog readers, here are a couple of the videos from that first-look chapter. The first one takes you step by step through the installation process of upgrading your computer to Mavericks.
