Penn State MacAdmins Conference 2012
Speaker: Nick McSpadden

Don't you sometimes wish your Macs could just take care of themselves? Well they can't; but with a good grasp on scripting and how to leverage it for process automation you can make it seem like they do! This session will go over the why and when to script, as well as some basics on how to script. We'll then look at various scenarios for automated system procedures and how you might go about scripting them so that you can "set it and forget it" (unless your system notifies you that something went horribly wrong, which we'll also go over). We won't have enough time to get into many deep examples of actual scripts, but we will go over many methods of scripting. If time allows, we'll end the session with a live script brainstorming session based on situations presented by attendees.
