Women In Technology

Do you wish you had a place you could bring your questions on how to better use your computer or cell phone? This is the group for you. We tackle a new topic each month. Each workshop will be open to small groups of eight.  We will run a wait list once full. Members should bring their own laptop or tablet, or arrange to share with a friend. We work with both windows and mac. Small groups are essential in allowing discussions to take place, everyone helps each other.
