If you’ve come looking for the free class formerly known as “Tech Support Tuesday,” you’re in the right place!

These classes are meant for non-techies and beginners, so come as you are and bring all your tech questions! We will also teach on tech topics that are relevant to home users.

Webinars

Do you wish you could have peace of mind knowing that all your documents, bank accounts and credit cards were safely stored in a digital form? I call this having a Digital Disaster Plan.

Apple Support: If you are looking for the most reliable, up-to-date, simple instructions to help you with your Apple devices, look no further than the Apple Support Site. It’s simply the best.

LastPass Support: We train exclusively on LastPass, and its support site is really one of the most helpful out there. We often refer to it for videos to share with students in our Digital Disaster Planning class.

Kitsap Computing Seniors (KCS): Computer user groups are a fantastic way to help one another. They have wonderful opportunities to learn, volunteer, teach, and even donate your old PC. They host drop-in free tech classes at the Library and Goodwill (subject to Covid restrictions, check their website).

Kitsap Mac Users Group (KMUG): Another great group (that splintered off KCS years ago, just for Mac users) is KMUG. I have presented to this group, and they are a wonderful, friendly, tight-knit group of folks who are passionate about Apple devices and helping one another.

Kitsap Regional Library – Free Drop-in Tech Help: Drop in to get help with basic computer skills, mobile devices or downloading library materials with library staff and volunteers. Help available most Fridays from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. See website for more details.
