"Tech Cafe" technical discussion group
We are blessed to have Steve Solberg leading his popular Tech Cafe Discussion Group. The topics vary widely, and are generally a little more advanced than our other educational opportunities.
This group meets at MountainView B & G East Room at 7:30 a.m. every other Tuesday. This is a good time to partake in the informal discussions over breakfast. This event also has a remote attendance option delivered via Zoom. Sign up for each Tech Cafe discussion session on the Class Calendar.

Investing in YOU
We are continually updating our classroom equipment and infrastructure. To the delight of users and instructors, alike, all of our Macs and PCs have been upgraded with solid state drives. This result is a very noticeable increase in overall speed of these computers.
A new custom-built instructor’s PC was put into service, improving the performance of our instructor-led demonstrations. And a brand new Epson projector was recently installed, providing a bright, high resolution display at the front of the room..
It is your annual class fees that make these kind of upgrades possible. Our computer classroom is the envy of other similar clubs. It is our goal to keep all our equipment and software state-of-the-art to maximize your classroom experience and learning environment.
