Mac news – October 2017

Greetings folks! I can't believe it's October already, but what else is new?

Getting straight to the point, here are my October events/classes:

Thursday, Oct. 12th, from 7-9 pm at Montrose Proximity Space, at the monthly Black Canyon Mac User Group meeting, I will be covering the latest operating system updates for iPhones/iPads & Macs. iOS 11 for your iDevices, and "High Sierra" (10.13.x) give us lots to talk about! Admission is free.

Saturday, Oct. 14th, from 10 am -2 pm at the Sherbino Theater, as part of Weehawken Creative Arts' ongoing "Business of Art" series, I'll be offering a class titled: "Grow Your Business Online". Cost is $40, and you'll need to register with Weehawken to sign up.
  • This 4-hour intensive will cover everything from A to Z in the world of online marketing. We'll start by making sure you have claimed your business on Google Maps, which will then enable you to post photos, price lists, menus, etc, as well as build you own free website and possibly begin advertising on Google search. Instructor John Clark has recently gotten certified by Google as a "trusted verifier", meaning he can bypass the annoying postcard requirement for verifying your business with Google if you haven't claimed it as of yet. There will also be instructions for getting listed on other online resources such as Apple Maps, Yelp & Trip Advisor. Apps such as Google's "My Business" and "Google Primer" will also be covered, demonstrating the ways in which you can manage your business listing from anywhere.
Thursday, Oct. 19th, from 3-5 pm at Montrose Proximity Space, I'll again be doing my "iPhone/iPad Overview". Remember, this class is no longer free; it costs $20 like my other classes.
  • This class will give you an in-depth review of all the tips & tricks you need to get the most out of your iPhones and iPads. As I mentioned above, there's a brand new operating system, iOS 11, that just came out, so if you want to learn what all the fuss is about, join us!
Saturday, Oct. 28th, from 10-noon at the Ridgway Library, I will be revisiting my "Photos for Mac" class, since I haven't done that one in awhile.
  • If you're using one of Apple's latest versions of their "Photos" program on your Mac, you surely know why you'd want to take this class, right? 😎
Remember, visit my website to learn more about these classes, or give me a call at (970) 417-8434. I do need you to sign up ahead of time for any class you hope to attend.

Hope to see you at a class sometime soon!
