Future Meeting Topics
Here are some possible topics for future OCLUG meetings.
Send mail to the OCLUG mailing list to suggest other topics or people who would be willing to give a presentation.
NOTE: We have plenty of topics – we need people to present. You need not be the expert – we have had considerable success with panel discussions that allow multiple “small” contributions. Contact any board member or post here if you can assist.
