November 8 Workshop - Blockchain


Bitcoin uses Blockchain. 

IBM wants to make 2017 the year of the Blockchain Enterprise Deployment.

Goldman Sachs says:

A new technology is redefining the way we transact. Blockchain has the potential to change the way we buy and sell, interact with government and verify the authenticity of everything from property titles to organic vegetables.

It combines the openness of the internet with the security of cryptography to give everyone a faster, safer way to verify key information and establish trust.

November's workshop will look at this technology & see what all the buzz is about.

Here are directions to the workshop - directions

May 10 workshop

For this workshop we will examine a cloud based app called Dropbox Paper.

Dropbox Paper is a web service intended for use by teams to collaborate on projects where team members contribute to a shared document as a project solution is developed. 

We believe that it could be an effective app for group collaboration when geographically dispersed groups are working on projects & need to communicate by sharing & editing content in a collaborative manner. We intend to take this app on a test ride & see if it meets our needs.

If you're attending, you might consider bringing a laptop or a mobile device so that we can test this app in a lab setting although bringing a device is strictly optional.

Dropbox Paper is also accessible by desktop & mobile devices.

Also, please check the website calendar or the hotline (914-946-5511) on Wednesday in case of last minute cancellation.
