2006 Workshop
Computer Hardware and Home Networking


Workshop Content

This fall, the Ottawa PC Users' Group will be offering a full-day workshop on the dual topics of computer hardware and home networking.

Our workshop will be held on Saturday, November 18, 2006, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Heron Road Community Centre, 1480 Heron Road, Ottawa.

Do you want to run Windows Vista, burn DVD's or develop a home theatre? Are you thinking of purchasing a new computer, or want to upgrade your current machine? What you need is OPCUG's "Hardware 101".

If you have more than one machine, and would love to be able to easily transfer files, share an Internet connection, or make certain that your wireless network is secure, our networking session will show you how.

Club members who have spent considerable time researching the associated issues will share their knowledge and expertise with workshop participants in two half-day sessions. A special feature of the sessions will be live demonstrations!

Computer Hardware
Our hardware expert will discuss current and future computer hardware - and will build a computer from scratch - right before your eyes!
Home Networking
Our networking expert will describe the basics, build a network in real time, and discuss security issues for wireless networks.


Wireless router Door Prizes!

As a special bonus for workshop participants, we will be featuring draws for a wireless router and lots of other door prizes!
