Providence Apple Admins exists to connect Rhode Island area Apple IT Pros who are responsible for deploying and managing Mac OS X and iOS devices.
The Northeast Regional Apple Admins (Providence) meetup will be held on Thursday, December 7th,[masked]:30 to 7:30 PM at the East Providence Public Library.
We’ll be discussing Jamf Pro 10 and the prevalence of add-on binaries like Splash Buddy and DEP Notify.
Apple admins of all skill levels and focus are invited. Feel free to forward this to anyone you may think would be interested in attending.
Hope to see you all there!
Let's meetup post JNUC to discuss the latest news from the conference and more. How's your High Sierra deployment going?
We're going to change venues to Wild Colonial Tavern on South Water Street. Lot and street parking will be easier and they have casual seating as well as a billiards table and dart boards. A light food menu is available.
Enjoy a drink on the patio and chat with fellow Apple Admins. We'll talk shop and some of the latest macOS 10.13 High Sierra news. (We are open to change venue suggestions)
WWDC is in early June so there will be lots of exciting new technology to talk about at this meeting! Looking forward to seeing everyone again!
Note: if you plan on eating pizza, please register on (https://www.jamf.com/jamf-nation/events/user-groups/169/boston-macadmins?view=info) so JAMF has a head count.
Maybe flowers will be growing in April, but we won't be talking about them. Instead it'll be all things Apple Enterprise Management.
Agenda to come. Presenters please contact me!
If you will be attending, please register on the JN page in order to get an accurate PIZZA count!
December will be our first "casual" meetup. Sometimes we don't have a speaker or topic lined up but we want to keep the networking and conversation going.
We'll be meeting at G Pub Restaurant in Downtown Providence, three blocks from Kennedy Plaza. Come by and enjoy a drink, food is optional, we'll get a high top near the bar. No free food/drink this time but G Pub does have free table games like billiards and shuffle board.
RSVP and look for us near the bar at 6PM.
We'll be meeting on the heels of the JAMF Nation User Conference to discuss what's new from JAMF as well as what's new in managing and deploying macOS Sierra, released in September 2016.
(For those of you not attending JNUC, the keynotes will be live streamed this year at https://www.jamfsoftware.com/events/jamf-nation-user-conference/2016/live/)
Beer and refreshments will be provided by our host Upserve with pizza provided by JAMF Software.
Parking and building information will be provided to attendees the morning of the meetup.
Time for our Fall Meeting. The new macOS Sierra is live, and we'll be meeting after JNUC so should be lots of exciting topics to talk about! A more detailed agenda will come later.
We're now at almost 50 members! July's meetup will be a meet and greet for new members along with a demonstration on what's new in Managing iOS. Come to network and enjoy a drink.
If you're still on the fence about managing iOS, a lot has changed since iOS 9 came out and managing iOS devices at scale is now even easier. Meetup member Adam Codega will give us an overview on changes to Device Enrollment Program, iOS configuration, and VPP app distribution.
Adam Codega is the IT Operations Leader at Upserve where he manages a Mac environment as well as other IT responsibilities. He's given talks at MacTech Pro, JAMF Nation User Conference, and just recently MacAdmins Conference at Penn State.
Beer/drinks and venue space are provided by Upserve with pizza provided by JAMF Software.
St Patrick's Day and March Madness were too much for our March meetup. Due to traffic problems many were not able to attend, so we're re-doing the talk in April.
April's meetup is a 2-for-1 bonus! We're going to have a demo on AutoCasperNBI, an open source tool for quickly and easily creating a minimal Netboot image (with Casper Imaging already installed) to boot your Macs off for imaging.
Meetup member Michael Grady will also go over how he uses modular imaging with Casper Suite in his higher education environment.
Michael Grady is a Desktop Support Technician at Johnson & Wales University where he's mainly responsible for supporting 1,600 users in a Microsoft environment. Michael has also been his organization's part-time Mac Admin for three years and has been using the Casper Suite for two years to streamline workflows.
Beer/drinks and venue space are provided by Upserve (formerly Swipely) with pizza provided by JAMF Software.
We're on our regular schedule now. Meetups will be 5:30-7:30PM to allow time for networking (and parking) before the presentation at 6:30PM.
