Vocatus Gate

is creating the open-source Tron and PDQ Deploy pack projects



About Vocatus Gate

In 2015, tired of cleaning and maintaining Windows systems manually, I created Tron as an attempt to automate some of the tedium. After posting to Reddit and receiving positive feedback, I open-sourced the project and continued working with the community to improve it. Around the same time, I also open-sourced the PDQ Deploy packs we were using in our shop, and continued to maintain these as well. Both of these are passion projects for me, and working on them with the community has been a great learning experience.

Tron tl;dr: Tron is a series of scripts and tools that automate Windows system cleanup and disinfection. It relies heavily on community input and is updated regularly.

PDQ tl;dr: Open-source/community versions of network-deployable update packages for common programs, e.g. Adobe Flash, Acrobat, Java, etc for PDQ/SCCM/etc. All of the packages install silently and disable telemetry collection, auto-update, etc. Pack updates are released roughly once a month.
