Philly Represent

The 2016 Pennsylvania State College Mac Admins Conference was held last month and there was some Philly MacAdmins speaking. Vaughn Miller (@Vaughn_E_Miller) was one of three speakers for the Mac OS Deployment Options workshop on Monday. Workshop sessions were not recorded unfortunately.  Jeremy Reichman (@jaharmi) and Sergio Aviles (@chalcahuite) presented “Implementing Configuration Profiles for OS X Management.” This session was recorded and can be watched here.

March Meeting Directions

Our March 2016 meeting is happening this Thursday, March 24th at Saint Joseph’s University. We’ll be meeting on the fifth floor of McShain Hall.

If you’re taking public transportation, I recommend taking the SEPTA regional rail – the Paoli-Thorndale line stops at Overbrook Station, which is an 18 minute walk to the meeting location. Click the map for a larger version.

30 Minutes: No Charge
Up to 2 Hours: $3.00
Up to 4 Hours: $5.00
Up to 6 Hours:: $7.00

The front of McShain Hall looks like this – if you see this building, you’re in the right place:


Just mention you’re here for the meeting on the fifth floor, and take the elevator upstairs.
