No DVMUG office meetings, Zoom meetings Tuesday

No DVMUG office meetings

Zoom meetings every Tuesday

As long as the Contra Costa County Health Orders remain in effect there will be no SIG meetings at the DVMUG office. Until the situation improves, please don’t hesitate to ask any questions that you may have on the DVMUG BBS. It is a great place for getting answers, especially in the specialized areas of the Gateway. So stay home, be safe.

With no meeting scheduled at the DVMUG office we are doing virtual meetings using Zoom. This may be the way of the world for quite a while, so I encourage you to connect with us on Tuesdays at 3 pm.

DVMUG members can check the weekly DVMUG News email or the DVMUG BBS for the Zoom meeting login.

DVMUG Zoom Classes

At the beginning of this year, DVMUG was planning on conducting another all-day workshop, as we have done many times before, to be held at the Pleasant Hill Community Center on a Saturday. We were even planning to include lunch. However, as with so many other things in 2020, the workshop was not to be. We still wanted to provide some training to our members, and in light of the success of our weekly SIG and general meetings being held online, we approached our planned workshop presenter, Mike Matthews, and asked if he would like to present to us online. As a result, he will be conducting 2-hour seminars via Zoom between October and December of this year. The dates and the subject material are below. This is but another opportunity to learn more about how to get the most from your Apple equipment. Unfortunately, we can’t provide lunch. This should be some excellent training and we look forward to seeing you online. Classes will be held from 3 to 5 PM on the dates listed below.

Class Schedule

iOS14

October 6, Tuesday, 3-5 PM – What’s new in iOS 14

Every year, Apple releases another version of the software that makes the iPhone the world’s most popular smartphone, and 2020 is no exception. If you’re an experienced iPhone user who wants to keep up to date with improvements and new features in iOS 14 – including new ways to organize your home screens, changes to Messages, updates to Maps and Safari, and a brand new Translation app – then this is the class for you.

iOS14

October 20, Tuesday, 3-5 PM – What’s new in iPad OS 14

A year ago, Apple introduced iPadOS, a variation of the software that runs on iPhone. It added new features that take advantage of the iPad’s ability to serve as a second screen for a Mac, use a keyboard and mouse, and run more than one application on-screen simultaneously. If you’re an experienced iPad user then this class will get you up to speed with all of the new features and benefits of iPadOS 14.

iCloud

November 3, Tuesday, 3-5 PM – All About iCloud

Think of iCloud as the glue that holds all your Apple devices together, syncing information like contacts between all your devices. iCloud also lets you share photos, documents, and calendars with other iCloud users. You can use iCloud to store documents as well as all your photos and videos. And iCloud also includes vital services like Backup and Find My. Bring your Apple devices, updated to the latest version of their operating system, to find out what iCloud can do for you.

iMessage

November 17, Tuesday, 3-5 PM – Messages… and More

Apple’s Messages app is one of the many ways to keep in touch with others. It can do much more than just send text. You can include pictures, videos, handwriting, animated emoji (even one that looks like you!), and more. Bring your iPad or iPhone, updated to the latest version of their operating systems, and learn how to spruce up your messages.

macOS Big Sur

December 1, Tuesday, 3-5 PM – What’s new in macOS Big Sur

The Mac remains Apple’s most versatile computer and with the release of macOS Big Sur it has a new level of power and beauty. We’ll cover the major changes, including updates to Safari, Maps, and Messages; a refined new design, a revised Notification Center, the new Control Center, and much more.

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 weekly email including current Apple news and How-To tips, 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.

Lee Wagner will be showing us the power of Pages that comes built in to the macOS.

The DVMUG General Meeting topic this month is the Apple Pages word processing program. Following a MacMost presentation on special features in Pages, there will be an “Introduction to Pages” Keynote presentation followed by (time allowing) a “Do It With Pages” Keynote emphasizing the utility of Section Masters (Watermarks) in designing a single-sheet program flyer.
