Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2022-09-22

As I am preparing to travel to JNUC next week, I don’t really have much insightful, or even witty intro… We got an iOS update and a new round of betas. Even if I am distracted, we got some wonderful posts by wonderful people sharing their knowledge and insights. Go read those and many thanks to authors for sharing.

uberAgent: application performance monitoring

uberAgent is an innovative user experience monitoring product for macOS and Windows. uberAgent’s highlights include detailed information about application performance, network reliability drill-downs, application usage metering, browser performance, and web app metrics. Try for yourself and get your free 100 user community license at uberagent.com.

If you are also at JNUC, I have some Scripting OS X shebang “#!” stickers for those who know to ask (and as long as the supply lasts).

If you ordered MacSysAdmin T-Shirts last year, you also got a surprise Scripting OS X shebang sticker. If you order a MacSysAdmin T-shirt this year (and you still can), you will get a different Scripting OS X sticker. Many thanks to Mischa van der Bent who turned my idea into a great design. You should order a MacSysAdmin T-shirt whether you want the sticker or not, to support the conference which is online October 4–7.

If you would rather get the weekly newsletter by email, you can subscribe to the Scripting OS X Weekly Newsletter here!! (Same content, delivered to your Inbox once a week.)
