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. Slides from their presentation can also be found here.
Good job guys and way to represent Philly MacAdmins!
Join us as we return to the Apple Store for our June meetup and 1 year anniversary. On the agenda will be What’s New, and an open discussion. Also, post meetup we will be informally venturing to Philly’s new SkyGarten Beer Garden to continue the discussion and celebrate one year of meetups for our Philly MacAdmin community. So come join us!
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.
If you’re driving, you might have success with street parking – there are metered and non-metered spaces. Another option is the SJU parking garage – Hawk’s Landing is a short walk to the meeting location, and is reasonably priced:
30 Minutes: No Charge
Up to 2 Hours: $3.00
Up to 4 Hours: $5.00
Up to 6 Hours:: $7.00
Over 6 to 16 hours: $15.00
Here’s a map from the parking garage to the meeting location (again, click for larger):
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.
Just a friendly reminder that our next meeting is Thursday, March 24th. This month we’ll be visiting Saint Joseph’s University courtesy of our own Mike Solin.

Just a reminder that we’re meeting at the Walnut Street Apple Store on Thursday, the 18th this month. Our guest Andrew Feierabend will be doing a Terminal/command line 101, so if you’re new to command line, or you know someone who is, or you just need a refresher please join us on Thursday. Also, we’ll be covering What’s New since last month as well.
Happy New Year! To open 2016 we’re at the Hun School at Princeton University. On tap for this meeting is “What’s New” and an open discussion forum. Bring Apple admin topics to discuss.

For the final meeting of 2015 and our 6 month anniversary we’re back at the Philly Apple Store. This month we catch up on What’s New since our last meeting and Jesse will talk about the mysteries and wonders of awk. Also, because this meeting is our Star Wars Holiday Spectacular, we’ll be doing a trivia contest and giving away some prizes. So, brush up on your Star Wars knowledge and RSVP today. As a reminder, we’ll be on the Executive Conference Room on the 2nd floor. Just head to the back and up the stairs or ask one of the friendly Apple Store employees to point you in the right direction.
