Event Details

Your head may not be in the clouds, but are your data and pictures?  Just where is the Cloud that everyone is talking about?

The 'Cloud' is simply The Internet - but it is taking on special meaning as Google, Microsoft, and others  offer accounts where you can have your own slice of the sky. If you start a document with your computer, send it to a “cloud” service, finish it on a tablet, and resend it to your Smartphone for viewing, you're using Cloud Computing.  Jim and Chris Guld will bring us their Cloud Seminar this month, during which they'll explain the concept and demonstrate how you would use Cloud Computing, with examples from Gmail, DropBox, and Skydrive.

The talk will cover:

  • Microsoft SkyDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox and Apple's iCloud
  • Synchronizing your computer and devices through these services
  • Web apps for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, and more
  • How to share your files with others

Jim and Chris Guld, aka Geeks on Tour, make extensive use of the Cloud as they travel the country in their motorhome, presenting seminars at RV Rallies, and Computer Clubs all across the country.  They use a variety of computers, tablets, and smartphones in their presentations and are always comfortable that they have the files they need because the files reside in the Cloud and are synchronized to each device! 

Before RVing, Jim and Chris were both in the computer training and support field since the early 80s.  Now they specialize in the technology that enhances the traveling experience.  Using Maps, digital photos, and social media to Plan, Preserve, and Share your travels.  Their website, www.geeksontour.tv, includes a learning library of tutorial videos on the software they use and recommend: Picasa, Blogger, Facebook, Google Maps, and more.
