Mac classes – October 2016

Wow, what a gorgeous fall we're having! Good thing the days are getting a lot shorter though, 'cause that means there's more time for Mac classes! 😁

On to the details...
Class list for October 2016:
  • Mon., Oct. 10th, from 3-5 pm: at Proximity Space, Montrose  "Office hours with the Mac Doctor
  • Thurs., Oct. 20th, from 6-8 pm at Ridgway Library: "Photos for Mac"; an in-depth exploration of Apple's iPhoto replacement.
  • Wed., Oct. 26th, from 5-7 pm: FREE Mac OS X OverviewRidgway Library.
Please do let me know if you plan to attend any of these classes; if I get enough commitments ahead of time, I don't have to send out a nagging reminder!

 First off, on Monday, October 10th, from 3-5 pm, at Montrose's fabulous new Proximity Space facility. I'll once again be offering one of my "Office hours with the Mac Doctor" sessions. I will be available to answer your questions, take a look at your wonky Mac/iPhone/iPad, or simply have a chat about the latest happenings in the tech world. Attention will be given on a first-come, first-served basis, so come on down and introduce yourself, take a look around Proximity Space! Charges, if any, will be determined by the complexity/difficulty of your issue, and if the issue is serious enough, a separate appointment may be necessary.

 Next up, on Thursday, October 20th, from 6-8 pm at the Ridgway Library, due to popular demand, I'll be revisiting Apple's new Photos program for Yosemite, El Capitan and now Sierra. Many people are getting more than a little discombobulated by the switch to Photos, but it's actually quite a powerful upgrade from iPhoto. Of course, as a "version 1" app, it also has some missing features and odd functionality. If you're running Yosemite, El Cap, or even Sierra (like to live on the bleeding edge, eh? 😁) on your Mac, you'll want to take this class to learn all the ins & outs of the new program! Please, do let me know if you plan to attend. Cost, as usual, is $20.

 Lastly, I will be doing my regular last-Wednesday-of-the-month class at the Ridgway Library on Wednesday, October 26th from 5-7 pm. This month, it's the FREE MacOS Overview (for computers). This class is held in the Library's computer lab. Space is limited, so you have to sign up, and the Library has asked that I handle the sign ups, so give me a call at 970-417-8434 (or drop me an email) if you'd like to attend. (Be aware that first-timers take priority over anyone who has taken the class before, but there are often openings for repeaters).

For the Mac Overview, there are six Macs in the computer lab, so only two of the eight attendees need their own laptops. This class is beginner-oriented, but we cover some different things every month; repeat attendees are encouraged (when there's room)!

I'm wishing you a long and glorious Indian Summer, and hope to see you at a class sometime soon!
