UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — In less than a decade, MacAdmins at Penn State has evolved from a one-day event solely for University employees to one of the most highly regarded industry conferences in the world. From July 9-12, hundreds of attendees from around the globe will travel to central Pennsylvania for the 10th annual MacAdmins Conference at Penn State, which will be held at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center.

Registration for this year’s conference is open now, and early-bird discounts are available until May 14. Attendees get access to an all-day workshop of their choice, three days of conference sessions, and meals each day of MacAdmins. Evening events are scheduled throughout the conference and provide plenty of recreation and networking opportunities.   

“MacAdmins is an event we look forward to each summer, and we’re excited to welcome everyone for the 10th annual conference this July,” said Michael Kubit, vice president for information technology and chief information officer at Penn State. “The true strength of MacAdmins is the large, diverse group that comes together to talk about and learn about how to solve human problems with technology.”

MacAdmins attendees will have access to more than 60 breakout sessions covering topics like Mac deployment tools, system monitoring, mobile device management solutions for iOS devices, and programming for system administrators. Sessions will feature representatives from influential tech companies like Google, Facebook, SAP, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and more. Also, the conference’s opening day will feature seven workshops from which attendees can choose.

Mac and iOS systems administrators and managers will come to University Park from throughout North America and as far as Europe. Despite the vast distances that some travel to attend MacAdmins at Penn State, it has become a close-knit community that provides valuable professional development.

“My favorite thing about MacAdmins is just how friendly the community is,” said Gretchen Kuwahara, systems administrator with Teaching and Learning with Technology. “They’re all so willing to help each other out and share solutions with the whole community. It’s a really positive energy.”
