Who Are We?
DACS in its present form originated from several local computer organizations: the Danbury Computer Society (DCS), Western Connecticut Micro-computer Users Group formerly the Danbury Osborne Group (DOG); Danbury Area Users Group (DAUG); and the Macintosh Users Group of Greater Danbury (MUGGeD.)
To its members DACS offers many resources: monthly workshop meetings and special workshops cover topics as varied as e-mailing, designing a website, working with digital photos, creating digital music, accessing your music and videos everywhere you want, how to manage upgrades and generally get the most out of your computers and mobile devices. Members can also get answers to questions in the online DACS forums where members can communicate with monthly workshop leaders and other members.
An added advantage to DACS members is the award winning newsletter, DACS.DOC, which is sent monthly. It is chock-full of pertinent computer related information.
To members with special interest, there are probably one or more monthly workshops—we used to called them SIGs (Special Interest Groups)—that will pique your curiosity. The various monthly workshops meet throughout the month and are attended by both beginner and expert users. If a monthly workshop is not available there is always the possibility to create it provided that there is sufficient interest.
Our regular General Meetings are held on the first Tuesdays of the month. The first part of the meeting addresses questions or problems faced by members. Hardware and software vendors demonstrate their products during the second part. General meetings give members the opportunity not only to find solutions to their problems, but to experience the newest and latest in computer technology.
To discover all about the many opportunities DACS offers its members, attend the next general meeting and check the Calendar web page for up-to-date information.
