If you’re an IT professional charged with rolling out Macs and iOS devices to employees in your company or students in your school, the Penn State MacAdmins Group has a wealth of new resources for you.
The group puts on an excellent annual conference for Mac and iOS administrators and IT professionals each year. The sessions cover just about everything you might need to know when it comes to developing a solid strategy for deploying and managing Macs and iOS devices in schools or business. Sessions are led by IT professionals with a solid background in Mac and iOS technologies. Real world experiences with the tools and processes involved are discussed along with tips, tricks, and advice.
If you weren’t able to attend the conference, however, you can view the sessions online.
Recordings of 36 sessions from this spring’s conference are now available on the group’s YouTube channel or through iTunes U. Where relevant, slide decks are downloadable from links embedded in the videos.
The sessions cover a wide range of topics including OS X command line administration, Lion Server, automating deployment processes using a range of tools, iOS deployment and management, Apple Remote Desktop, migration strategies, case studies, and a roundtable discussion to name just a few.
In all, there are nearly 45 hours of material and all of it is available for free.
The group has already announced that next year’s conference will be held May 22nd – 24th 2013 at the Penn Stater Conference Center in State College, PA.
