General Meetings

Presentations are given at the meetings on a variety of topics from speakers within the group as well as from outside sources. An open forum portion of the meeting allows members to find solutions to problems. Visitors are always welcome to attend the general meetings and meet our members.

Next Meeting

Wednesday March 11th, 2020

Topic: Scripting and automation
Speaker: Chris Taylor, OPCUG

Following Alan’s presentation on computer programming in February, Chris will discuss techniques for automation and scripting. Forget those confusing “write-only” programming languages like APL. There are plenty of ways mere mortals can take away the drudgery of repetitive tasks so they are done easily, consistently, and reliably.

All the techniques Chris will show require a minimum of learning, don’t require that you spend a dime on a programming language/compiler, and can reward you with the ability to have more work done automatically by your computer.
