At this years JNUC I presented alongside a long time Jamf buddy of mine, John Miller. My part of the talk detailed the various application deployment methods currently available to the Jamf admin (VPP & AutoPkg). With some nuances detailed & some pitfalls mentioned.
John expanded upon the subject by opening up the discussion to Patch & the forthcoming 3rd party integrations.
Below is a link to the video, & links to each section with some more links as pertinent.
Another year, another MacAdmins.org Podcast.
This time I managed to drag along one of my partners in crime at datajar.co.uk, James Ridsdale. And you’ll be relieved to here that we’re split the speaking duties, so it’s not just me mumbling along!
Links to that episode can be found below, as well details on the MacAdmins.org Podcast & a link to the MacAdmins.org Listener Survey.
Last night I spoke about jamJAR at the April 2017 University of Utah, MacAdmins Meeting.
This talk goes a little more into the “why” we went the jamJAR & some in-use examples.
Below is a link for the video as well as a link for the meeting.
Earlier this year, James Ridsdale & myself presented at macad.uk a talk called “Munki and Patch – A Comparison”.
Below are links from the talk.
The talk itself contained some details on Jamfs forthcoming Patch & our solution leveraging open source tools with Jamf for “patch management”, jamJAR.
At a recent London Apple Admins, I gave a talk titled “Demystifying Apple School Manager”.
The talks video, the presentation & the links mentioned can be found below.
Whilst at JNUC2016, I was offered the opportunity to join an episode of the MacAdmins.org Podcast.
It was a fun experience, & I hope to return on a more structured episode one day.
Links to that episode can be found below, as well details on the MacAdmins.org Podcast.
At JNUC2016, I presented alongside my colleague James Ridsdale. The talk gave a history of Apple management, from Managed Preferences to Configuration Profiles. Attempted to deep dive into how Configuration Profiles work, advise on some idiosyncrasies & some workflows available when using an MDM.

This post is for my macad.uk talk: UI & UX for the scripter. It contains various links to things I discussed & (when available), I will update with the sessions video.
At the recent JAMFNation User Conference (JNUC2015) I gave a talk titled “Let’s Talk About Certificates” (original title, “Let’s Talk About Certs, Baby!).
The talks subtitle, “A tale of Alice, Bob, Eve & a stretched analogy…” gave some warning that things may go off base for a talks which main content, trying to demystify certificates, was rather dry.
PKI was the main talking point as well as some of the changes coming from the CA/Browser Forum, iOS 9 & El Capitan as well as a new CA on the block coming soon.
Links to the video as well as a PDF of the Keynote & some extra resources can be found below.
I’d urge you to spend 30 minutes watching the video. I had a lot of fun putting it together & the feedback I’ve had is that is was funny & informative.
At this years MacAdmins Conference at Penn State, I had the honour of giving a talk titled “Open (and/or Free) vs Closed Source – Steel Cage Death Match” with the outspoken Allister Banks as my opponent.
