Episode 35: Into the Past with Chip Pearson

MacAdmins.org Podcast, Episode 35: Into the Past with Chip Pearson


What were the olden days like? We ask Chip Pearson of Jamf Software about what it was like to be in Mac support before any of the tools existed, what it’s like to build tools from a clean slate, and what kind of dungeonmaster he is.


You can support this podcast by buying one of our awesome spring collection shirts! They bear the logo of this fine podcast in one of three festive colors: grey tri-blend, gold cotton or my favorite, tahitian blue cotton! All t-shirts will be printed by our partners at Cotton Bureau, with proceeds to support the efforts of this fine podcast.
