Getting MicroMDM working, and working with MicroMDM

Speakers: Jesse Peterson

Level: Intermediate, Lecture

Excerpt: In this talk we’ll be getting a solid handle on setting MicroMDM up in a production environment while covering various configuration scenarios. We’ll also work with the API to drive some custom behavior. The focus here is a solid background on what it takes to get MicroMDM up and going so you, too, can deploy it with ease.

Description: Maybe you saw last year’s presentation of MicroMDM and wanted to dig in but didn’t quite know where to start, or wanted a more in-depth setup tutorial. Or maybe you want to integrate with MicroMDM by using its API to do get some useful and custom MDM behavior. If so this talk is for you. We’ll be walking through a typical setup of a MicroMDM instance from scratch including touching on getting MDM certificates, setting up the service, getting ready to enroll devices, etc. After we have MicroMDM running lets work with it to have it send some commands to devices and work with the responses when devices reply the commands.
