Maybe we’re using these tools for our own workflows or maybe we’re trying to provide an elegant workflow for our coworkers to get their code to testing, staging, and production environments. Continuous everything is the name of the game, so today we’re going to talk about CI/CD pipelines with a couple of guests from Veertu.

    MacAdmins seem to be increasingly stretching our skillset to include other platforms. Sometimes this is because we’re using a single pane of glass to manage Windows and Mac.

    First impressions matter. Onboarding is one of the best ways we can provide an elegant and savvy first impression to our coworkers when they’re hired. We’ve had the developers of Octory on the podcast to talk about what they built, but today we wanted to get someone on to talk about using Octory from the admin’s perspective, so we’re lucky to have John Hutchison agree to join us!
