Don’t Miss MacTech 2013

MacTech_Conference_2013-Gradient-logo-7 MacTech 2013 is one of the premier Mac Admin conferences of the year and as such you should definitely not miss it. MacTech is packed full of great activities like pre-conference workshopssessions and most importantly, time to network with your fellow Mac Admins. Networking is quite possibly the best part of the MacTech conference as you have the opportunity to spend time with fellow Mac Admins and build relationships that will last long after the conference is complete. Having the ability to bounce ideas off of fellow admins that you have met and respect is invaluable, especially if you are a one man shop and only have a rubber duckie to discuss things with on a daily basis. Several contributors to AFP548 are also doing sessions at MacTech and you do not want to miss them. Nick McSpadden is covering “iOS Deployment & Management Strategies.” He is an invaluable resource if you are looking to deploying iOS devices in your organization, so be sure to hang out with Nick during the social networking activities and pick his brain. Sam Keeley is doing a session on security in Mavericks called “Security: Making Mavericks Work for You!” If your organization requires that all machines must be locked down in accordance with a security standard or even if you just want to increase the security of your fleet to prevent future attacks, than this session is also not to be missed. Sam will be glad to discuss any security related questions about Mavericks you may have, so catch him during the nightly activities and have a chat. Michael Lynn will be covering OS X Troubleshooting in his session, “Help us, help you: Effectively troubleshooting OS X.” Mike will discuss what to do when you are about to lose your mind over a not-so-obvious problem which you are trying to troubleshoot. Mike will cover several utilities that can aid you in your quest to fix issues and cover good methodologies for troubleshooting. Mike has a wide range of knowledge about OS X and python, so be sure to hang out and absorb as much information as you can during the conference. MacTech 2013 is going to be fantastic, so be sure to register today!
