  1. Your new deployment series is a breath of fresh air as we re-evaluate our 500 iPad deployment going into our 6th year. I am a history teacher turned tech coordinator, and your podcasts have upped my learning curve significantly! Thanks!

  2. Bradley, my name is Barrett Mosbacker. I serve as an adjunct professor at Covenant College and also serve as the Superintendent of Briarwood Christian School, Birmingham, AL: http://www.briarwoodchristianschool.org. BCS has a comprehensive 1:1 iPad program called Learning Unleashed. We are also deploying iPad Pros for all of our K-12 faculty. I would love to connect with you over lunch–my treat–the week of June 27. I’ll be at Covenant College teaching that week in the graduate program. I teach School Business Management. I found you through your podcast “Out of School,” which is excellent. Please email me at bmosbacker@bcsk12.org whether or not you are able to meet with me the week of June 27. Also, I publish a blog (The Christian Education Journal) that may be of interest to you: barrettmosbacker.com

    I look forward to hearing from you.

  3. I have a question for Fraser about episode 188. When you spoke about adding users to the JSS with a Python script, I wanted to hear more about that. I’ve been adding users by hand for years, and it’s bothered me that JAMF does not provide an csv import facility for users. Can you point me to resources that you used to create the script? I can hack in Python, but have not used anything like the REST JSS API.
    Thanks for any help you may provide.

  4. I would have interest in discussing school Networking and IT issues as a guest if youd be inclined. I used to be head of engineering networking at Cisco but am currently slumming it as Director of Operations as well as Engineering & Industrial Arts Teacher at my kids school. Anyway can we ralk about this idea?
