I recently attended an event hosted by the Apple Enterprise group in San Francisco. Joel Rennich gave an excellent talk on Directory Services, describing the changes that Leopard has brought to the party and talking about strategies for integrating Macs and Open Directory into an Active Directory structure. One thing that struck me (besides the heartburn from burritos and beer) was what a bunch of hackers these guys are. Apple is very much steered by its focus on consumers, and thus technology for the masses, but behind the scenes these guys are trying to make all this great stuff work in corporate environments. I’ve added some sites where all this is happening, like AFP548.com, to the resource links on the right.
