Know how to write a shell script? If yes, you can write in Apple’s newest programming language – Swift. Today’s session presenter, Joel Rennich, shared tips on how to leverage Swift with the JSS API to quickly create utilities and extend a user’s existing tools. As an example, he showed how to apply these capabilities to determine if a BYO Mac is enrolled, gather demographic data from a user and put the user’s Mac into a group within the JSS.
Showing no fear of the “demo gods”, Rennich showed several live demos during the session. The audience was pleased to see an example of an app under development by Trusource Labs that guides a user through the BYOD enrollment process.
