About MacDeployment

MacDeployment Conference

MacDeployment is an Alberta-based group for Mac Admins, sharing current best practices in the area of deploying and maintaining Macs. We've held four annual conferences so far and are just beginning to offer local meetups as well.

Our MacDeployment Conference has brought in top speakers from the Mac Admin community and is the main gathering place for our Alberta Mac Admins community.

Next Event

Our next MacDeployment Meetup is:

Wednesday, February 28
6:30 p.m., 1025 10 St SE (Proactis Solutions), Calgary

Our format is to have two or three "lightning talks" or mini-workshops (5-15 minutes each, although we've had longer) and lots of time for discussion. To that end, anyone who wants to give a lightning talk should propose it to us (see below for methods). Of course, if there is a topic you want to hear about (because, for example, you're struggling with it right now), you can also float the idea in one of our online channels and perhaps someone will volunteer to share what they know at the meetup. One possible topic for a quick talk is to simply explain your context — what do you support (type, quantity, scale), what tools do you use, what are you looking to change or improve? Regardless, you are always welcome to bring your questions to the meetup; we've already seen successful connections built.

There is no charge for the meetup (thanks to our friends at Apple for providing the space!), but if you intend on coming, please let us know so that we have adequate space at the venue. There are three ways you can let us know:

  • Via our online form;
  • By posting in the #macdeploy channel in the Mac Admins Slack; or
  • Sending us a message on Twitter (@MacDeploy).

Hope to see you there!

Next Conference

We have announced that we are moving to a biennial conference schedule. Thus, the next conference is planned for 2019. (For more background on that decision, read our letter to the community from January 25, 2018.)
