Happy SPAUG 2019

We are starting 2019 with a double header.

The January 2019 SPAUG meeting will feature two separate lectures by SPAUG President Maurice Green:

  1. Tips and Tricks for Video Editing – Maury will demonstrate some of the special effects which can be achieved with a video editing program like Pinnacle Studio or Adobe Premiere. Topics will include exposure adjustment, lower third titling, combining stills and video and producing animated gifs.
  2. So You Want to Build a Website – This lecture will be the first in a series of lectures for the long anticipated WordPress class. We will discuss the evolution of websites from simple HTML to modern day mobile responsive CMS systems. The lecture will cover the basic elements of a website, setting up a local web server on your computer and installing the  WordPress system.

The meeting will be held at the Palo Alto Elks Lodge, 4249 El Camino Real, Palo Alto. We will be meeting in the Library/Card Room across the hall from the Lodge Room.

For those who enjoy the schmooze, we will have the no-host pre-meeting dinner st 5:30PM in the Bistro Café on the first floor.

And for those of you who have difficulties traveling or for whatever reason can’t join us at the Elks Lodge, the meeting will be broadcast as a live video conference using ZOOM software starting at 7:15 PST.

And for those of you interested in meeting other WordPress users, from novice to expert, Maury will be leading the newly formed Palo Alto WordPress Meetup. Details on the first meeting will be announced soon.
