UtterAccess Forums _ Local Access User Groups (AUGs) _ New York City? How Do I Know Where A Local Aug Is?

Posted by: KristaC Feb 20 2019, 03:56 PM

Hey all,

I know most stuff is done online today, but it would be so helpful to know where the "local" aug's are. I want to get tutored but I can't find anyone in NYC who actually knows what they are talking about. I literally have met with like 10 people and no luck. I'm an idiot with Access and I know more than most of the "tutors" I've met... LOL Being most techies here use more current languages/db's, it's really really really hard to find someone to tutor me.

Does this forum provide a way to attend a local group, or do I have the whole idea wrong??

I've met a guy who is a expert in Access on Techgara, but he doesn't live in NY, he's living in NJ, bad luck for you frown.gif

It surprises me that NYC still does not have a local AUG. I am sure there are plenty of Access developers and users in the area. There used to be a local AUG that sometimes held meetings at Microsoft's offices located at 1290 6th Ave., between 51st and 52nd Streets, but that AUG disolved. I tried resurrecting a group when I lived in NYC but no one showed any interest. I ended up moving to Florida in 2016.

There are several Access related videos on youtube, and tutorials and articles on this and other forums.
I realize different people have different format preferences for learning, but the videos can be stopped/replayed etc which I find useful.

If the meetings don't have to be face to face, someone with a GoToMeeting subscription can probably help you. GTM allows screen sharing and the expert can manipulate your app while you watch if you want.

Hi Krista,

Did you find someone to tutor you online, or in person?
