Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2022-09-30

For me, this week was fully dominated by JamfNation User Conference (JNUC). It has been amazing and quite overwhelming to meet with all of you enthusiastic, smart, and inspiring Mac Admins!

Jamf has been posting summaries of some sessions on the Jamf Blog. The sessions will be available for registered users (both virtual and in-person) in the conference portal for the next 60 days and then released for everybody on Jamf’s YouTube channel. I have a lot of catching up, and also a lot of re-viewing to do.

To everyone who took the time to talk with me, a huge thank you. All the kind feedback is both humbling and inspiring. To all who I missed or whom I couldn’t spend enough time with, because there was always the next engagement or meeting to run off to: I am terribly sorry! I hope we get a chance to talk at the next conference!

JNUC 2023 was announced for September 19–21 in Austin, Texas, USA.

(This news summary is unusually scheduled because of travel and time zones. I might also have missed some interesting links and posts. If you found something that I didn’t include, please let me know and I will include it next week.)

But the conference fun is not over: next week is MacSysAdmin Online and the speaker list was just released!
