Meetings for this week:

Tuesday 22nd Nov

Monthly MAIN Meeting: 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Microsoft at the November Main Meeting!
This will be our last main meeting for 2016 and our special guests are from Microsoft, who join us for the second time this year - except this time from the Microsoft Flagship Store on Pitt St Mall.

Two representatives from the Store will be joining us for the November main meeting. They are Paul O'Malley, Service Advisor, and Matthew Ranocchiari, Product Advisor, who will be there to answer any questions you have around Microsoft and Windows 10 - and more!

Spanning both presentation slots, the first from 6:30pm to 7:00pm and the second from 7:15pm to 7:55pm, our guest presenters are going to showcase the latest and greatest from Microsoft - and they definitely have a great deal to share with us!

Not only will we learn about the latest Windows 10 developments, including the advancements in the anniversary update and other updates since, Paul and Matthew will share updates around the stunning new Surface Studio and the brand new, next-gen Surface Book with Performance Base.

Some examples of the cool things Cortana can let you do and do for you will also be demonstrated as well as some other cool Windows 10 features and benefits.
We'll also learn about the new Xbox One S and why it is the most popular games console in Australia.
Microsoft will also explain how the Office 365 subscriptions work and how popular they are today.

We'll get an update on how successful the Microsoft Store has been and continues to be in Australia, the first country outside of North America to get its own Microsoft Store.
Finally, we'll learn how the store has helped people solve PC issues, how it has fantastic free classes and more!

What raffle prizes will be available is yet to be determined, but wherever they come from, we will have some nifty things on the table for members to choose from when their names are called up during the draw.

During the break we'll also have an array of Christmas nibbles as it will be our last meeting of the year until January 2017, when we'll have presentations from Boost Mobile and Trend Micro.

So, see you on Tuesday night - it will be another MUST-SEE presentation that you definitely won't want to miss!
