Congratulations to JAMF Software!

We at AFP548 would like to congratulate JAMF Software and IBM for their announced collaboration to provide management services to Apple customers all around the world. In one fell swoop, one of the oldest technology companies showed it was serious about supporting Apple’s products, and here’s to the notion that a rising tide lifts all boats.

In commemoration, we’d like to call attention to the great work of Shea Craig for his efforts making the high-traffic areas of Mac management with the Casper Suite easier, from python-jss to jss_helper and of course his engine under the hood of the Linde Group’s AutoPkgr(along with, of course, autopkg itself). Speaking for myself, I can say that personally Shea has helped me with custom Extension Attributes, to the point I really need to make a repo of all these things. But not before pointing you to a newer repo of Shea’s, where Extension Attributes like the ones I have can be loaded in automatically. Cheers!

(Full disclosure: JAMF is a valued sponsor of AFP548)
