As was announced in the spring of 2008, we are now giving presentations through the Ottawa Public Library. We hope this will continue to be a win-win situation, where we get to introduce people to the OPCUG and the library gets access to skilled presenters.

Following are upcoming presentations currently scheduled.

June 2019

Who's the Boss - you or your camera?
Tuesday, June 4, 2019, 6:30 - 8:30 PM, Orleans Branch

Take your photography to the next level by getting your camera off "Auto" to achieve the creative effects you want. Learn how to tell your camera to capture what you see - don't let it decide for you. Topics covered will include an understanding of aperture, shutter speed and ISO which can be applied to any camera that has a dial for selecting exposure settings (e.g. "A" or "Av", and "S" or "Tv"). Presented by Chris Taylor, President of the Ottawa PC Users' Group and Microsoft Most Valuable Professional.

Protecting Your Computer
Wednesday, June 5, 2019, 6:15 - 8:15 PM, North Gloucester Branch

The average time it takes for an unprotected computer to be compromised after connecting to the Internet is under 15 minutes. Don't let it be yours. Chris Taylor, President of the Ottawa PC Users' Group will show you the simple steps you need to take to keep your computer from being hacked.

Windows 10: The good, the bad, and the ugly
Saturday, June 29, 2019, 1:00 - 3:00 PM, North Gloucester Branch

Windows 10 represents a considerable change from Windows 7 and an evolutionary refinement from Windows 8.1. Chris Taylor, President of the Ottawa PC Users' Group and Microsoft Most Valuable Professional, will talk about some of the important changes both visible and "under the hood". If you find Windows 10 confusing, or just want to know more about what’s hidden, this session is for you.
