Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2019-03-01

This week we got great posts from MacAdmins on bash, snapshots, bootstrappr, MDS, Fleetsmith, Intune with Munki, AutoPkgr with Jamf Cloud and more.

I am always intrigued at how diverse the MacAdmin community can be. Of course, all our lives rotate around the Apple platforms, but the approaches and tools today are more varied than they have ever been.

Apple may be drastically changing how we deploy Macs, but there are so many tools, both open and commercial, that are being created to fill the gaps or improve on existing tools. It is an exciting time to be a MacAdmin!
