Wrote an article
I wrote an article on creating WDS discover images for use with devices that don't have on-board network ports.

This was especially useful as a lot of the hardware the Department for Education was shipping out to schools did not have network ports and needed to be setup quickly for use at home by pupils during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Updated iPads
Designed a Backend System
+ 1
I developed a squid configuration to cache the downloads of apps and iOS updates for iPads. The aim was to reduce the amount of internet traffic the iPads where generating. It greatly improved performance as iPads downloaded from the cache instead of hitting the internet.

I wrote this up to share the configuration with others on my blog.

Played Screeps

I wrote up my experience on my blog.
