For the first year I’ll be speaking at the newly-rebranded
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen League of Professional System Administrators conference in New Brunswick, New Jersey! It’s May 3rd and 4th, and should be a change from the Mac-heavy conferences we’ve been associated with as of late. I’ll be giving a training class, Intro to Mac and iOS Lifecycle Management, and a talk on Principled Patch Management with Munki. Registration is open now! Jersey is lovely that time of year, please consider attending!
For the third year, I’ll be presenting at PSU MacAdmins Conference! This year I’m lucky enough to be able to present two talks, “Backup, Front to Back” and “Enough Networking to be Dangerous”. But I’m really looking forward to what I can learn from those speaking for the first time, like Pepijn Bruienne and Graham Gilbert among others. The setting and venue is top-notch. It’s taking place May 22nd through the 24th, with a Boot Camp for more foundational topics May 21st. Hope you can join us!
It was the pleasure of two 318′ers to attend and present at PSU Mac Admins Conference last month, and lickety-split, the videos have been made available! (Slides should appear shortly.) Not only can you pass the time away with on-demand streaming from YouTube, you can also download them for offline access (like the plane) at the iTunesU channel. Enjoy the current most popular video!

318 is proud to announce that we will have 3 speakers doing a total of 4 sessions at the upcoming MacWorld Conference & Expo in San Francisco in February. Speakers will be Beau Hunter, Zack Smith and Charles Edge.
We will also be announcing some events as the conference gets closer. If you are planning to attend then you can sign up here. We hope to see you there!
318 will be attending the FileMaker Developer Conference at the San Francisco Hilton from August 13th to August 16th. If you plan on attending or are in need of a custom FileMaker solution, send us a note at http://www.318.com/filemaker. Hope to see you there!
There’s an open source conference of sorts coming up in LA on November 3rd. It’s called BarCamp. Check it out at: http://barcampla.org/
We start by gathering together in one space and going around the room to introduce ourselves with three tags to describe what we’re passionate about (or want to talk about). There will also be some announcements. After this, people who intend to lead a session will add their session info to an empty schedule grid (may be moved around early on). If you see a session you’re interested in, go to it.
After a couple of sessions, you will have a significant amount of downtime for lunch. Feel free to wander around and socialize while or after you eat. More announcements will be made, and any newly proposed sessions will be announced.
After the sessions are finished, please stick around to clean up. It’s generally as simple as throwing trash away and taking down signs, but all the help is appreciated.
If you brought wireless equipment or power strips, find a coordinator and ask where they’re most needed. Please set your wireless router to a unique SSID (e.g.- barcamp_xxx), to avoid networking conflicts (nasty with a dozen routers in the same room named the same thing). Also, if you can, please lower the radio output of your router. There’ll be plenty of WiFi cloud to go around without everyone blasting out at full power.
While loosely structured, there are rules at BarCamp. All attendees are encouraged to present or facilitate a session. Everyone is also asked to share information and experiences of the event, both live and after the fact, via public web channels including (but not limited to) blogging, photo sharing, social bookmarking, wiki-ing, and IRC. This open encouragement to share everything about the event is in deliberate contrast to the “off the record by default” and “no recordings” rules at many private invite-only participant driven conferences.
Fun stuff. November 4th, check it out.
This year’s DefCon seminar will cover the features and fundamental concepts of OS 10.3.4 Server. We will begin by describing the various roles of OS 10.3 SERVER in both small and medium sized offices. We will cover managing the webserver, email server and file storage. Finally, we will cover upgrading from 10.2 and data backup strategies.
