We’re a group of macOS and iOS administrators, serving the Greater Philadelphia region (including eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, and South Jersey).  Generally, we meet the third week of the month.  Our meetings follow one of two formats:

  • The even-numbered months take place online, typically over Zoom.
    • We discuss “What’s New” since we last met, and dive into a group discussion or a featured presentation (contact us if you’d like to present).
    • What’s New and the presentations are posted here after the meetup.
  • The odd-numbered months are more open-ended.  We’ll either have a social gathering at a local restaurant, or meet at someone’s workplace (contact us if you’d like to host).

All meetings are free to attend and open to everyone (please see our Code of Conduct).  To view and RSVP to our upcoming meetings, please see our Eventbrite page.

October 2023 Meeting Summary

Last night, on October 17th, 2023, we held our second post-pandemic meetup at West Chester University!

Serge covered What’s New, then Brett Gross discussed many of the new macOS Sonoma, iOS 17, and iPadOS 17 features that are relevant to our work as Apple device administrators (and we might have missed).

Our thanks to WCU and Will McGrory for providing the venue, food, and refreshments! Also, thanks to Brett Gross and Kelly Dunaway from Apple for an excellent presentation!

It was great to see everyone in person again, and we’re looking forward to doing another one like this soon!

October 2023 Meetup Announcement

Hey everyone!

We’re changing things up this month. Instead of a Zoom meetup, West Chester University has generously offered to host an in-person meetup! Tremendous thanks to Will McGrory for making this happen!

Brett Gross (Senior Systems Engineer at Apple) has graciously agreed to present. There will be no livestream or recording.

Please see the Eventbrite page for exact details, including room location and parking. See you there!

May and July 2023 Meetup Summaries

I completely forgot to post – our May meetup at Yards was a huge success! We were blown away by the number of people that came out, including a couple who made long trips from outside of the Philly area just to be here. Thank you! We had a blast, and we’ll definitely be doing this again soon.

Huge thanks to Adam @ Jamf for footing a large portion of the bill, as well as holding a raffle for AirTags and MagSafe chargers!

For July, we opted not to do another in-person meetup, as many of us were already attending PSU MacAdmins. It was great to both old and new faces at the conference! We took both “Philly” and “Springboard alumni” photos:

Come hang out with us at the next one! Stay tuned here and the #philly channel on the Mac Admins Slack!

June 2023 Meeting Summary

Thanks for joining us for our June 2023 virtual meetup! John covered What’s New, and we had an open discussion. Please see the slides and video if you missed it!

We’re going to skip our in-person meetup for July in favor of PSU MacAdmins. If you’re attending the conference, look for us and say hello! We’ll have GPMA stickers, buttons, magnets, etc. Otherwise, see you at the next virtual meetup in August!
