Scripting Jamf: Best Practices – Virtual JNUC 2020

These are the slides and notes to my presentation “Scripting Jamf: Best Practices” from October 1, 2020 at the Virtual JNUC 2020.

You may also want to watch my MacSysAdmin Online 2020 session on “Practical Scripting.”

Shell Environment and Configuration

Note: many of these are articles I wrote a while past. At the time bash was the default shell on macOS. However, since zsh is mostly compatible with bash, many of the examples and suggestions will work as well. I explain the differences from zsh to bash in my post series “Moving to zsh” and (in more detail) in my book of the same name.
