“Primer on Using a Database”

Airtable icon

Hosted by Michael Yanikowski,
Double Click Secretary/Treasurer.

Have you ever wanted to use a simple database tool to track information like people, places, things, or activities? One can use that database to track membership lists, your book or music collections, your home inventory, or a travel bucket list. The ideas are endless…

For this month’s meeting, Michael Yanikowski will show you how to design a basic database and then how to implement it in Airtable, the database tool that he uses. That database tool works with Macintoshes and iOS mobile devices. The data is stored in the cloud so the data is available on all the Apple devices you own. For most personal users the tool is free.

All regular meetings are free and open to the public.

Double Click Beginner’s SIG

The Beginner’s Special Interest Group (SIG) has been incorporated into the Main Meeting in a new condensed format. The session hosts will alternate between Steve Parker and Michael Yanikowski. Steve, the long-standing Beginner’s SIG Coordinator, demonstrates macOS X tips and basic techniques. Michael, an avid user of Apple mobile devices, presents basic information about iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches. Alternating on a monthly basis, their presentations are a popular feature of the first part of every Double Click Main Meeting. New and experienced users are always sure to learn a tip or three from Steve and Michael. (If you have a tip, bring yours along to share!)
