Updated 2018-05-29 to include presentation recording This morning I had the privilege of presenting at JNUC 2017 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. My talk was an evolution on my previous talks about how I approach Onboarding new hires at Culture Amp. In the talk I covered the following topics: Onboarding new employees Standards within your organisation Okta Jamf Pro Apple’s Device Enrolment Program (DEP) SplashBuddy Below are my slides and embedded videos from the session.}

I’ve finally had some time to play with the YubiKey 4C and decided I wanted to get it functioning as a second factor with Okta. This guide from Yubico seemed fairly straight-forward but I immediately ran into an issue.

I’m uploading my slides here and embedded the videos that were present in my presentation.

Taking many pointers from this great post by Rich Trouton a year ago, I wanted to write a followup to how I’m deploying macOS Sierra in my environment. I’ve followed a lot of the steps that Rich has outlined but it’s probably easier to describe the full set of steps I’m taking rather than describing the differences. Firstly I’m downloading the most recent version of the macOS Sierra installer from the App Store then running it through createOSXinstallPkg using the following command:}
