Upcoming conference talks for 2015

Pepijn Bruienne just posted a nice summary of the Apple administration-focused conferences coming up in 2015. I'm also happy to be a small part of several of those coming up:

Anthony Reimer has organized for its second year the MacDeployment workshop, hosted at the University of Calgary's Integrated Arts Media Labs. I'm looking forward to visiting as the IAML seems similar to the environment I support at Concordia University's Faculty of Fine Arts, and the Prairies are one of the only parts of Canada I've not yet visited.

Thanks to some great timing, one day later I'll be speaking at the new MacDevOps YVR conference taking place at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, organized by Mat X and Brian Warsing. Mat and Brian have recruited a great lineup of speakers, so it's going to be a very packed day. I was born in BC but didn't grow up there, and it will be almost exactly 15 years since I was last in Vancouver.

These two days (June 18-19) I'll be giving an introduction to Python in the context of Mac administration.

Finally, I'm lucky to be returning to Göteborg, Sweden for MacSysAdmin 2015 on September 29 through October 2. It was an absolute pleasure last year to attend, speak and meet so many members of our community, thanks to Tycho - and I'm looking forward to traveling there again. This time I'll be giving a tour and demoing some of my Mac sysadmin tools I maintain on GitHub.

Hope to see you at these great events!
