Our own Chris Wysocki will be doing a presentation on Numbers on both Mac and iOS.

Now that Numbers is free to everybody it’s worth covering and learning how to produce basic documents. Plenty of tips and tricks will be shared to make Numbers a useful addition to your computing toolkit

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 Pacheco 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.

Previous Film Fest Awards and Videos

Lights! Camera! Action! It’s Film Fest Time Again!

If you have been to one of our previous Film Fests at Rossmoor’s luxurious Peacock Room, you already know it is a match for the finest private theater around, with lush soft seats, a grand screen, and a high-quality sound system. At the Fest, you will get to view some of the excellent short presentations made by members of the Diablo Valley Mac User Groups and the Apple User Group of Rossmoor.

The winning entry will be chosen by a vote of the audience. Additional awards will be presented for editing and photography.

Immediately following the Film Fest screenings, come to a wine-and-cheese awards ceremony held in the adjacent Fireside Room. Even if it’s broiling outside, you can enjoy the Fest and awards ceremony in air-conditioned comfort. Meet your friends, have a glass of wine, and savor the gourmet cheeses personally selected by our DVMUG Food SIG Leaders.
