Sessions Chairs


Miguel Chavez, C & C Computer Factory

Miguel has been elbows-deep in Apple hardware and software since 1989 when he moved on from Amiga and decided to check out those platinum boxes with the funky 13" monitors. Desktop publishing and NYC were like two peas in a pod and he spent several years working his way up from tech help desk to running the IT department in a division of Scholastic Inc., overseeing over 100 computers (even some PC's, heavens!), several servers, and a Syquest or two. All that experience in both the tech and human side of computing led him to venture off on his own and now 15 years later, as one half of C&C Computer Factory, he still enjoys helping folks get the most out of their computers. Ah bless!

She went back to school to become a Microsoft Certified System engineer. After leaving the Seattle area and moving to Long Island, Kim went to work for Stimpson Corp as the in-house IT person.

In the late 1990 s, Max decided to become an independent consultant and concentrate on what he enjoys most: helping Macintosh users get the most out of their systems.

He is truly in his element at Pivotal Labs managing technology for 40 dedicated software engineers in New York and working with his colleagues in the Pivotal San Francisco, Denver, and Boulder offices. Pivotal's enterprise practice brings agile methods to existing teams, helping them produce business value faster, with less waste, higher quality, and lower cost. Where many companies focus on training, we learned quickly that the best way to help a company 'go agile' was to get in the trenches with them, build real product in their environment, and work through the impediments one by one as they come up.



Sessions


The Elephant in the Room

The New Lion OS X is out, now what? There are a lot of differences to contend with between Lion and Snow Leopard. Now with the new Mountain Lion update, what changes can we expect to see? We discuss the differences in advanced services, GUI simplicity, and Apache management GUI's. We help you understand the updates in the new OS and make the transition easier. We go over the new updates of Lion over the Snow Leopard server.

Setting solid foundations

To truly grasp the power of Lion, you need to set up solid foundations. We go over minimum requirements for internet DNS, and tackle router tricks. We discuss open directory and what it was used for.

Mobile Device Management 101: Apple’s IPCU/Apple Configurator

Mobile Device Management is vital to businesses, large or small. We have an extensive overview of profile manager and how you can use mobile device management on OS X. For those still using Snow Leopard, we go over your options and discuss the possibility of using third parties as a solution.

DNS, Ahh, run away, run away

In this session, we tackle DNS and break it down and show how simple it is to work with. We go over how DNS works and cover different components such as internet DNS and internal DNS.

Administering a Server with just Server.app

We show you how to use server.app and control administrative programs. For the services, we go over Address Book, iCal, iChat, and Mail.

Web Administration of OS X Server

Web Admin on Lion Server versus Snow Leopard is covered, dealing with the differences and how to use each system effectively. On Lion server, we cover using FTP without a GUI.

Going old school, using the old tools

After getting used to Snow Leopard we go over the major differences between Snow and Lion and how you can handle the transition. We go over server admin and what is still left in the program and why it has been left.

Deployment Part I: Tools & Concepts

In tools and concepts we learn that there aren't stark differences between Lion server and Snow Leopard. NetBoot, NetRestore and third party tools are covered; we talk about how NetBoot works and what the differences between NetBoot and NetRestore are. Along with this we cover Network configuration requirements and using software update server.

Deployment Part II: DeployStudio

DeployStudio is covered in-depth; we cover creation techniques and management techniques.
