Michael Lynn was good enough to pull together the complete list (so far!) of Twitter photo posts from Penn State MacAdmins Conference 2015.

There are over 300 in all, so I’m splitting this into three posts as having WordPress display 300+ embedded tweets may make your browser cry. The final set is below the jump. Enjoy!

Note – 7-9-2015: Apparently, there were enough downloads of the presentation today that I’ve hit a Dropbox bandwidth limit. If you’re hitting this issue, please try downloading again tomorrow.

Update – 7-10-2015: It looks like Dropbox is still suspending access, so the virtualization session slides are also available via the links below:
