A new vision for intelligent communications in...

Today’s post was written by Lori Wright, general manager for Microsoft Teams and Skype product marketing.

Today at Microsoft Ignite in Orlando, Florida, we introduced a new vision for intelligent communications, transforming calling and meeting experiences for people and organizations around the world. Intelligent communications go beyond traditional unified communications, enabling you to complete tasks more efficiently with minimal context switching, participate in more productive meetings that cover the entire meeting lifecycle, and better manage your everyday communications overload.

Microsoft Teams is core to our vision for intelligent communications—bringing together conversations, meetings, files, Office apps, and third-party integrations—to provide a single hub for teamwork in Office 365. Teams is now being used by over 125,000 organizations across the world in just six months since its launch. Its strong...

Today’s post was written by Brandon Antin, vice president of Social Responsibility and Innovation at VCA.

If there’s one thing the more than 25,000 VCA employees know, it’s that we’re a pet-friendly work environment. In fact, I bring my rescue dog, Charlee, to work with me every day. I wanted to build on that idea of a welcoming workplace based on common corporate knowledge to promote a more connected culture among team members at our more than 815 veterinary hospitals across North America. When you have different cultures across such a large area, something as simple as understanding the common threads that bind everyone together is challenging. Today, we’re using Office 365 as our communication and collaboration platform to create an environment where everyone can share...

All workers welcome with Microsoft 365

Today’s post was written by Bryan Goode, general manager for Office 365.

Today at Microsoft Ignite, we unveiled a new vision for empowering Firstline Workers in the digital age and introduced Microsoft 365 F1—a new offering that brings together Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security to deliver a complete, intelligent solution to empower all workers.

The modern workplace requires companies to meet new employee expectations, connect a more distributed workforce, and provide the tools that allow all employees to create, innovate, and work together to solve customer and business problems. A truly modern workplace brings out the best in employee ingenuity, creates a culture of innovation and action, and welcomes and empowers all workers from the executive team to the Firstline Workforce.

Firstline Workers comprise the majority of our global workforce. Numbering two billion people worldwide, they are the people behind the counter, on the...

Personal finance—lessons learned from an online shop

Mastering personal finances can often start with something as simple as holding a garage sale or opening an online shop. Keeping track of what it takes to manage sales helps you figure out what’s needed to make sure your own finances stay in order.

Sisters Devin, Quinn, and Alexis decided to try their luck with an online shop when they were left with a house full of antiques after their grandmother passed away. They started Bachelor’s Button Vintage to sell all the marvelous old things they inherited but didn’t need.

Each sister brought her unique skills to running the online store. Quinn, a teacher, used her writing skills to write product descriptions. Photographer Alexis lent her ability to create great shots needed for their items,...

Take control of your personal brand with Office

These days—with so many social media channels competing for our attention—creating a personal brand is the best way to stand out from that vast crowd vying for attention online. According to Mel Carson of Seattle-based Delightful Communications, crafting your personal brand statement can help you take control of where you want your career to go.

Mel has helped everyone from pet groomers to Fortune 500 CEOs develop their personal brands. “A personal brand statement is your shopfront to the hundreds of people looking to hire, partner, and connect with you,” says Mel. “Spend some time crafting your personal brand statement properly and it will stand you in good stead until the day you retire.”

“Find your mission—having a mission in the public domain acts as a signpost and filter as well as gives personal accountability,” says Mel...

Devon Energy uses Microsoft 365 to maximize...

Today’s post was written by Matt Harper, director of information security and infrastructure at Devon Energy.

The oil business is a tight market because we get paid the same amount for a barrel of oil as our competitors, and oil prices are depressed right now. This means that we have to operate very efficiently to make money. We’re adopting a cloud-first mindset and using Microsoft 365 Enterprise and Azure to help us do that.

Devon Energy is one of the largest independent oil and natural gas exploration and production companies in North America. We produce about 250,000 barrels of oil and 1.2 billion cubic feet of natural gas a day. We’re based in Oklahoma City, but the vast majority of our 3,500 employees work in the field, at drilling and production sites. We...

Event planning made easier with Office

If you’ve ever had to plan an event, you know how tricky getting all your ducks in a row can be. Chiara Adin of the NA Collective—a New York City–based event agency that creates memorable experiences for clients like H&M, The North Face, and Pandora—has some pointers to help you get everything done on time and on budget.

“Whether you’re planning your wedding, a fundraising event, or hosting an event for 500 people, start with a baseline of how much you’re looking to spend and a way to track your purchases and expenses throughout the planning process,” says Chiara says. “Excel is a great tool for this—use its mathematical capabilities to total and track your expenses in one place.”

Chiara stresses the importance of thinking it all through by taking some time to sit down and visualize your guests’ journey from start to finish. “This will ensure you’re not missing any major details like: How do they find out about it? How do they RSVP or do they need to? How do they...

Use Startup Profiles In macOS

Startup profiles configure profiles to install at the next boot, rather than immediately. Useful in a number of scenarios. Use the -s to define a startup profile and take note that if it fails, the profile will attempt to install at each subsequent reboot until installed. To use the command, simply add a -s then the -F for the profile and the -f to automatically confirm, as follows (and I like to throw in a -v usually for good measure):

profiles -s -F /Profiles/SuperAwesome.mobileconfig -f -v

And that’s it. Nice and easy and you now have profiles that only activate when a computer is started up.

Demote Open Directory Servers Using The Command Line...

The command to create and tear down an Open Directory environment is slapconfig. When you disable Open Directory from the Server app you aren’t actually removing users. To do so, you’d use slapconfig along with the -destroyldapserver. When run, you get a little insight into what’s happening behind the scenes. This results in the following:

bash-3.2# sudo slapconfig -destroyldapserver

The logs are as follows:

Programatically Manage DNS In macOS Server

DNS is DNS. And named is named. Except in macOS Server. Sometimes. The configuration files for the DNS services in macOS Server are stored in /Library/Server/named. This represents a faux root of named configuration data, similar to how that configuration data is stored in /var/named on most other platforms. Having the data in /Library/Server/ makes it more portable across systems.

The current version of BIND is BIND 9.9.7-P3 (Extended Support Version). This has been the case for a number of macOS Server versions, and can easily be located by doing a cat of the /Library/Server/named/.version file. 

Traditionally, you would edit this configuration data by simply editing the configuration files, and that’s absolutely still an option. In macOS Server 5.2 (for Sierra), a new command is available at /Applications/Server.app/Contents/ServerRoot/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DNSManager.framework called dnsconfig. The dnsconfig command appears simple at first. However,...

To then delete the room, use the -d option:

Capture Smaller Screenshots in High Sierra

By default, screenshots are pretty big on a retina display on a High Sierra machine. Like about 4 times the size they should be. I haven’t found a defaults key I can use yet to reduce them, so I’ve been using this little screenshotting app called RetinaCapture, available at https://gumroad.com/l/retinacapture.

Basically, when you’re running it, you just open it up and click on the Window button. There, you can select a window to screenshot.

Once you’ve selected the window, you’ll be prompted to save it somewhere with a name.

I don’t love having to use any 3rd party apps for my screenshotting workflow. In fact, it bugs the crap out of me. Screens get resized by publishers for books and so I’m really only using this for my site. But, hopefully it helps someone else along...

Nordstrom is synonymous with legendary customer service in its more than 350 stores and online. To help employees be more productive and to accommodate the demand for flexible workstyles, Nordstrom uses Microsoft Office 365.

In a recent conversation, Cho Hwang, technology director at Nordstrom, told me how Office 365 helps the company adapt to changing workstyles and supports anywhere productivity:

“Office 365 supports the diverse and ever-evolving workstyles of Nordstrom employees in retail and corporate locations. It provides a comprehensive set of tools that enables employees to be more productive and always have the data that they need at their fingertips.”

UEFI, 10.13/APFS, and You(r Imaging)

Let’s discuss the basic input/output system for IBM PC compatible computing devices, aka BIOS. Wait, that’s not a good start, P.eople C.an’t reM.ember C.omputer and I.nternet A.cronyms. Ok, EFI – that’s a thing that’s like BIOS, right? You can lock it, it makes sure all your most vital hardware components are attached, and on the Mac it even throws up a faux loginwindow if FileVault 2 is enabled.

(Paragraph-long parenthetical: We are going to stop calling it FV2 at some point and just let it own the ‘FileVault’ name, since we all know that’s what we’re talking about, right? FV1 mattered, but it sure didn’t catch on like its successor. FV1 was a neat parlor trick, like Time Machine doing hard links to :all_the_things:. Anyway.)

Although Apple always likes to implement things that would only make sense to its design/engineering/marketing departments, they still need to comply with the (U)EFI spec by having a...

New to Office 365 in August—enriching teamwork

Today’s post was written by Kirk Koenigsbauer, corporate vice president for the Office team.

More than ever, effective teamwork is critical to your success. This month, we made the experience of working with others even better through the release of co-authoring in Excel, enhancements to Microsoft Teams, an updated Yammer app, and more. Read on for the details.

Work better together with Excel

Today, we’re taking a significant step toward empowering people to work better together with the general availability of co-authoring in Excel. Now anyone can work together at the same time in spreadsheets stored in SharePoint Online, OneDrive, or OneDrive for Business. With Excel co-authoring, you’ll find it easy to know who else is working with you in a spreadsheet and view their changes as you work.

We’re also announcing the general availability of AutoSave in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for Office 365 subscribers who store their documents in OneDrive...

Upcoming Requirement for Promoted In-App Purchases

With iOS 11, users can browse in-app purchases directly on the App Store and start a purchase even before downloading your app. During the iOS 11 beta period, promoted in-app purchases are displayed on the App Store without the ability to buy. Starting this fall, your app must handle App Store transactions of promoted in-app purchases in order for your in-app purchases to be displayed on the App Store. Once the GM version of Xcode 9 is released, simply implement the new delegate method within SKPaymentTransactionObserver, rebuild your app, and submit for review. You can also customize which promoted in-app purchases a user sees on a specific device with the SKProductStorePromotionController API.

Quick and dirty: Pull a list of all filevault...

In the following example script, I’m going to pull a list of just the usernames from fdesetup.

sudo fdesetup list

The output would be as follows:

charlesedge,F4D8B61D-1234-1234-98F4-103470EE1234
emerald,2E1203EA-1234-4E0D-1234-717D27221234
admin,50058FCF-88DF-1234-1234-91FCF28C0488

I’ll then pipe them into sed and use the , as a delimiter, pulling * or everything before it:

sudo fdesetup list | sed 's;,.*;;'

As follows:

charlesedge
emerald
admin

Linde drives digital transformation with Microsoft...

Today’s post was written by Sebastian Mahler, head of enterprise infrastructure at Linde.

When I joined Linde, I was interested in the challenges inherent in managing a global company. We are one of the world’s largest industrial gases companies—and over the 12 years I’ve worked here, these challenges have only grown more complex. We serve many local markets with numerous regional offices; however, due to an increasingly volatile and connected global economy, we needed to build a more cohesive collaborative organization. We replaced our on-premises Lotus Notes solution with Office 365 cloud-based business productivity services so everyone could work better together, and to drive agility and responsiveness in a digital marketplace.

Our core values—empowering people...

Hook The Lintings

Friends don’t let friends commit puppet code with obvious errors. Especially when you’re working with a team, having a consistent style enforced by something like puppet-lint means less messy diffs as you send changes to each other to review. And if you’re leveraging stuff like r10k, you definitely don’t want that screwed up, where the rubber meets the road.

Here’s a way to use one of the more popular collection of puppet-specific hooks to add checks before you commit locally across the modules you maintain and deploy.

First, for consistencies sake, you probably want to make sure you have a consistent directory in your home folder to point at. If you don’t have one already, you can create a binary directory to store stuff like csshX, munkipkg, and other fun items that you want in your path.

mkdir bin
chmod 700 bin
chmod +a "group:everyone deny delete" bin

(if you want to add it to your path temporarily, you’d run PATH=$PATH:~/bin or add it on...
