From the ad: “Are you still struggling to understand what this Google revolution is all about? Do you not understand the difference between attaching and file sharing? Are you wondering why you need to sign into Chrome AND Drive? Then join us for a discussion of the cloud computing approach of Google. This session is for beginners who want to understand what the changes mean.”

In this session, novices in the use of Google products will learn the principles of cloud computing, account-based interfaces, and file sharing. These principles will be applied to the Google suite of products, including Chrome, Drive, and Calendar.
