Description: Starting out as a new Mac admin? Not sure where to go to get answers to questions? Learn about the MacAdmins Slack, the best resource for all things Apple administration and support. Chat with the developers and vendors of popular software and tools that you use every day, ask questions about problems you encounter, share your knowledge, and meet up with Mac admins in your area. If you’re already on Slack, it’s a great starting point for new Mac admins or a refresher for those who’ve been away. And best of all, you’ll finally learn what the dolphin means.
