Always learning, always teaching, & always sharing.

Bring your questions and share them with the group. There are no wrong questions. Feel free to share your digital problems. Someone in the group usually has the answer. If we are not able to answer the questions during this session, unanswered questions carry over to future meetings.

10:00 – 11:00 Featured Speaker:
Richard Lynch and his team work hard to get great speakers. Some of our previous topics have featured topics like Using old software on new Macs, Heath & Apple Watch, Video editing and sharing, Photo techniques, iCloud, Sharing, FileMaker Pro (Claris) database, Create Exciting Keynote presentations, and drones.

11:00 – 12:00 Breakout Session:
Stay and ask questions from our Featured Speaker or breakout into various groups and go into more in-depth on significant topics. Bring your ideas and start your group. We have a General breakout where Leonard Davis helps with many Apple questions. There is a Vision SIG breakout group. We tested Green Screen, Photo retouching, iMovie editing, and painting from photos. There is even a coding breakout.
