Apple User Group Bulletin – August 2020

Apple User Group Bulletin – August 17, 2020

This month’s featured vendor is O’Reilly Media. 
O’Reilly has been a part of the user group community for more than 30 years, so it is hard to remember back to 1978 when it was a small consulting company with a focus on UNIX and related technologies. By 1992 many user group members were reading copies of the Whole Internet Users Guide and Catalog while our more adventurous members were reading Programming Perl. Today, O’Reilly is an integral part of the technology community, providing handbooks, webcasts, conferences, trainings materials, online resources, Maker Faires, and more. Are your members taking full use of their resources?
