MMS 2017 is a few weeks in the rear-view mirror at this point, and now that I’ve had some time to mull over everything I learned and the experience in general I wanted to put some of those thoughts and takeaways out there for those who couldn’t make it. This will be a two-part post; part one containing my thoughts on the conference and part two containing interesting things I learned in the various sessions.
The Midwest Management Summit is an event I look forward to attending every year, as it is by far the best ConfigMgr/Windows Management conference around. No marketing bullshit, just real techs talking frankly about the technology and what challenges they are solving with it.
Every year when I get back home I immediately download all the slide decks and pour over the sessions I made it to, and more importantly, the sessions I couldn’t attend. Unfortunately this year Andrew Johnson’s excellent download script (http://www.andrewj.net) was not functioning. The problem stems from the fact that the downloads are locked behind a login whereas in years past it was a free-for-all. I waited a bit to see if anyone could figure out a way around it, and since no one seems to have published anything yet I figured I’d give it a shot.
