IRC - there is a #jamfnation channel on the Freenode IRC server. A lot of great minds hang out on that channel during the day. While it is not a JAMF sponsored place, even a few JAMFers hang out in there occasionally. It's a great way to get help in real time.  If you've never used IRC before, or it's been a while, IRC Cloud is a great IRC app:

Some Tools:

AutoDMG - tool for creating never before booted OS X DMG files for use in Casper or AutoCasperNBI

AutoCasperNBI - tool for creating NetBoot images

CreateUserPKG - tool for creating a package that will "install" a user on a system

AutoPKG - tool for downloading applications and updates. Utilizes recipes from the community. Can be coupled with Jenkins for automation. See my series of posts about it, starting with this one.

AutoPKGr - AutoPKG with a GUI front end, and integeration into the JSS. This tool eliminates the need to implement Jenkins

vfuse - tool for creating VMware Fusion VMs from DMG files
