I’m excited to be presenting once again at MacSysAdmin 2014 in Gothenburg, Sweden!

The current plan is that I will talk about what’s new in Munki (so I’d better finish a lot of the stuff I’m working on before then!) and, together with Tim Sutton, a detailed talk on AutoPkg.

MacSysAdmin is September 16th through September 19th, 2014 – hope to see you there!
