Hands-On Technology Lunch Series: Making Sense of an Ever Changing World

Introducing a nine-part, hands on technology series led by two independent and experienced educational trainers representing both the Apple and Microsoft platforms. Everyday users who are faced with softwares from different platforms in a mixed technology world should attend the nine- part program as a series, or can pick-and-choose which topics are most applicable to their lives. A light lunch will be included.
The programs are typically held the second Monday of each month.

When our computing hardware is pre-determined by our employer, we are relieved of the burden of making a difficult choice. However, small businesses and independent professionals don’t have that luxury. We have to make decisions about what devices to buy. To complicate matters, the lines between our personal and work devices are frequently blurred. For example, we may have an iPhone for personal use but you may run your business from it as well. So how do you choose between all the different devices on the market?

There is no one right answer. Apple and Windows devices have different strengths (and weaknesses). In this session, we will explore each platform, covering each of the following areas:

• Price
• Security
• Longevity
• Portability
• Compatibility
• Features

There is no substitute for doing your own research, so we will also provide you with some resources that will be helpful when preparing to make a hardware purchase for your business.
