September General Meeting

Alan Dewar

Remote Collaboration Alternatives to Zoom

Speaker: Alan Dewar, Software Engineer Staff, Synopsys

Over the past eighteen months, the world has moved from in-person gatherings to remote work and learning. Fortunately, we have technologies in place to facilitate this. By now, everyone is likely familiar with Zoom (including, obviously, those who are attending this meeting!), but it wasn't the first and is far from the only tool at our disposal.

Alan Dewar will present an overview of some other remote meeting technologies, describing the benefits and limitations of each. This will include live demos, with everyone welcome to join. We will then open things up for an interactive discussion of the tools and services that you've used, and your experiences and impressions of these. If you have any tips and tricks you've come across, or a particularly favorite tool, please share your expertise with the rest of us!

Alan Dewar is a long-time CUUG member and has served on the Board of Directors in multiple positions. He has been working remotely since March, 2020, as a staff software engineer for CUUG's silver sponsor, Synopsys. This has been going smoothly, but he looks forward to seeing real live people in person again some day.

7:00 PM, Tuesday, September 28, 2021

If you would like to attend, RSVP to "office" at "" and we'll send you a Zoom invite prior to the meeting. We look forward to seeing you there!
