MOST RECENT Q&A SESSION – January 5, 2022
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 hold 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.
The Q&A session is 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.)
Articles posted on OPCUG’s web site and published in the newsletter provide tips, tricks, and (solutions to) traps related to Windows (and other operating systems) and its associated software products. Additional information is often developed as a result of our Q&A sessions. The latter are listed at: https://opcug.ca/qa-topics/
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.
