This Week at DVMUG 12-09-2018

Tuesday evening is the macOS SIG. Anne and John will answer any questions you have about macOS, new versions or old. This month Anne will be demonstrating the recently released macOS Mojave. Be sure to check out the macOS SIG if you want to review and discuss the announced changes and the future direction for macOS.

 


 

The Diablo Valley Mac Users Group helps Macintosh users get the most out of their computers. Software, hardware, digital filmmaking, photography—these subjects and more are covered in the club’s monthly General Meeting, workshops, and Special Interest Groups.

You are invited to attend our general meetings at the Pleasant Hill Community Center for vendor and club presentations on new hardware, software, and other items of Mac interest. Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. with a Question & Answer segment where you are welcome to ask about your own Mac problems; there’s a break during which the club Mac experts answer your questions one-on-one, and a raffle in addition to the main presentation, usually by a software publisher or hardware manufacturer.

Dues for the entire family are $40 per year-a bargain! Especially since it includes access to the club’s award-winning monthly newsletter, ApplePRESS, and attendance at all Special Interest Group meetings including the monthly MacClinic, where club experts diagnose and repair what’s wrong with your Mac as well as helping you with software upgrades, hard-drive replacement, and similar improvements.

Learn the basic ins and outs of Apple devices, the core interface elements—the menus, Finder, and Dock—so you can start working with files, folders, and applications right away.  Mac Essentials looks at concepts and apps (e.g., Mail) and examines that concept across the iMac, iPad, and iPhone, noting the similarities and more importantly the differences on each device. Each meeting will start with YOUR questions.
