What do we do at a Q&A session?

One of the strengths of computer user groups is the technical assistance provided to members – by members. The Ottawa PC Users’ Group is no exception to this general rule. Our motto “Users helping users” says it all.

We publish a wealth of useful information in Ottawa PC News, our monthly newsletter, and answer questions on the members-only forum on our web site. We provide additional assistance by holding question-and-answer sessions where anyone can raise computer-related queries and, hopefully, have them answered through the combined knowledge and experience of the members present.

Our Q&A sessions are held on each Wednesday evening from 7:30 to 8:30 pm (except for the week of our monthly club meeting that is normally held on the second Wednesday of the month.)

Historical Note:

Over the years, OPCUG has had a number of Special Interest Groups (SIG’s).

Most recently, the Beginners’ SIG, Windows SIG, and the Linux, Free Software and Open-Source SIG have all morphed into the current Q&A session.
