Hello and Welcome,
We have another interesting range of topics being discussed at next week's meetings. Details are below:
Tuesday 15 October - Seniors - 9:30am - 12:30pm
Tips, tricks and secrets for Windows 7 will be the main topic for this week's meeting of the Seniors SIG.
The group will also discuss Microsoft Office essentials and how to customize the latest version of VLC Media Player.
A video tutorial will be shown and the group will have an opportunity discuss problems and items of interest during the meeting.
Tuesday 15 October - Genealogy - T Eakin - 12:30pm - 3:30pm
Terry Eakin has been learning about the Biographical Database of Australia during the last week so that he can demonstrate it at this meeting. More information will be made available in a paper he will send to members of the group on Monday.
Questions and general items of interest to family historians will also be discussed at the meeting.
Saturday 19 October - Web Design - S South - 1:30pm - 4:30pm
This month Brent will discuss Social Media which to quota his e-mail message “is being used by more and more businesses to help promote their services. Effective web sites involve more than the physical setup of web pages. They must address the wants, needs and desires of the target audience.”
Steve South had the chance to take a Digital Hub course on Facebook and Tweeter last week and he plans to spend the first hour of the meeting discussing what the fuss is all about.
In the following hour the group will look at "fluid images" which is a part of the Responsive Web Design concept. As web page images need to be flexible enough to fit into both small and large screens, the group will explore how this can be achieved.
