SIG-Computing Topic:  The Cloud is Here – Don’t Get Left Behind

Presented by Judy Taylour

Are you using the Cloud? Unfortunately, many people still answer no. We seem to need buzz words to define anything related to computers, which seems to mystify people. You will be surprised when you find out how much we are all using the Cloud and how much more is out there that we can take advantage of.

We no longer have just one computer; we have a smartphone, a tablet, and probably a second computer. How can we keep our data files in sync on all of them? We want to share files with family, friends, and associates, but emailing them is inefficient. Is there a better way? 

Judy is a 34-year member of the Santa Clarita Valley Computer Club, where she serves as President, Editor, and Webmaster. In addition, she was co-facilitator for the Southern California Regional User Group Summit (SCRUGS), for over 20 years.

She spent 23 years involved with the Southwest Technology Conference held in San Diego, serving as co-chair and chair. Every year she scheduled the speakers and was the volunteer coordinator.

Judy taught adult education tech classes for over 20 years through her local high school district. She is a member of the Pierce College Computer Applications and Office Technologies (COAT) Advisory Committee that meets annually to suggest courses and hardware for the next school year. Judy is a firm believer in life-long learning and enjoys giving presentations via APCUG’s Speakers Bureau.
