Computer Studies 2017-18

Computer Study Group

All programs are very tentative. Check this Web site the week of the program to get most current information. This site serves as announcement of planned programs and a record of attendance and resources from presentations. The scope of this study group has been broadened to technology interests and not just computing. Most of the programs about computing will be generic in terms of operating system and will serve both PC and Mac users.

Persons who have been suggested to present, but who have not yet committed are noted with a ‘?’ behind their name. Underlined text links to session resources.
