  • Tim Perfitt: “Setting up a room full of dual boot macs with MacDeployStick fast at IETA. Arrived in room after 7:30 am and by 8 am this was the scene. macOS with windows 10, office, boot runner and more.”
  • Paul Hudson: “A few people have asked if it’s too late for them to start my #100DaysOfSwift challenge. Definitely not! You can start whenever you want, as long as you’re able to stick at it consistently. Make today your day.”
  • Kitzy: “Hard to believe it’s been over 3 years since we started MacAdmins.org, and how much the community has grown since then.”
  • Tim Perfitt: “I finally got a call from the app review team about my macOS app.” (Thread)
