Mac Classes - August '12

Wow, it's August 23rd, and I'm just now realizing that I forgot to post my August class news here! If I have an excuse (questionable, I know), it's that I was on vacation when I sent out the newsletter from MailChimp... Oh well, with any luck, there are still a few folks that follow my class news here, and will be happy to find out about the two classes I'm offering this month. Fortunately, this first one is this Saturday...

If it's not already obvious, this month is so busy that I only have time for one focused class, then the regular Overview class at the end of the month at the Library. I'm really hoping to get back to normal in September. Anyway, on to the details:

 On this Saturday, August 25th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will once again present my in-depth class on the iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch. WIth the release of the latest iPhone supposedly coming in mid-September, I figured it was time to revisit my class on Apple's "iDevices", since they just keep getting better. The iPhone 4S, the iPod Touch, the new third-generation iPad, and now whatever they'll call the newest iPhone, they all continue to set standards that the rest of the industry struggles to match. And on top of all that, iOS 6 is just around the corner as well!

Whether you've had one of these game-changers for years, are just now jumping on the "iOS" bandwagon with a new iPhone/iPad, or it's simply time for you to find out what all the fuss is about, this class will teach you everything you need to know about these amazing devices. Cost for this class is $20, and it will be held at the Ridgway Town Hall. Sign-up is not necessary, drop-ins are welcome!

Then, as I said, due to yet another crazy summer month of commitments, the last class of August will be...

 The regular FREE "Overview of Mac OS X" class, which takes place on the last Wednesday of every month, and this month that means it happens on Wednesday, August 29th from 5-7 p.m. These overview classes are held in the computer lab at the Ridgway Library. There are only eight seats available, 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).

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'll be posting September's class news soon, so stay tuned...
