Happy New Year, Mac Admins of the greater DC Area!
We’ll be meeting at Moreland’s Tavern in the Brightwood Neighborhood of Washington DC to socialize and see a presentation from Rich Trouton called Installer Package Scripting:
I can use scripts as part of installer packages. Great. Why have a session about this?
There are lots of cool ways to use installer scripts. You can use them to fix problems in other people’s installer scripts, install software which doesn’t use any of Apple’s recommended installation methods, deploy configuration files for other installers, and you can even build an installer package which is only a delivery mechanism for scripts. Let’s look at how to do this!
To set some expectations management for this session, my assumption is that folks here already know the basics of how to write scripts and build an installer package. We’re going to be discussing how to build on that foundation to solve problems.
We’ll also have plenty of time to talk about your current challenges, the state of the art in management solutions and troubleshooting, as well as the future of the platform.
Food and drink will be available from their excellent kitchen & bar.
