Episode 248: A Day In The Life Of A MacAdmin
The life of a Mac Admin isn’t just about Macs. Those are often the easy part. Instead we spend a lot of time figuring out how to make the Mac exist in the ecosystem of other tools we have in our environments. Today’s episode will follow Tiffany Woods in her journey to become a Mac Admin. We’ll get an update about tools like NoMAD and look to the next year to try and figure out what challenges await us all in the coming months.
