Seniors conference on computers set for Sydney


The Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association (ASCCA) is set to stage its 15th annual conference for senior citizens next month in Sydney.

To be staged over two days – 12 and 13 November – the conference attracts seniors from around Australia, with the aim of assisting and educating older citizens in the use of computer technology, and as a way of “enriching their lives and making them more self-reliant.”

According to ASCCA President Nan Bosler this year’s event, at Rydges World Square in Sydney, is attracting a large number of registrations, including from members of seniors computer clubs who get a 50% discount on the registration fee.

“The excitement is building. All the speakers and information stands are confirmed and contents for the welcome satchells are taking up most of the spare space at the ASCCA Learning Centre. One item promised for the bags has a rrp of almost $130!”

The conference has attracted a range of speakers on various topics for the two-day program including Microsoft attorney, Natasha Crampton speaking on ‘Legal issues in the cloud’, Scott Riddle, Strategy & Operations Manager for Partner Solutions at Google on ‘Life & the Internet –We’re only just getting started’, and Telstra’s Jillian Riseley, General Manager Digital Inclusion on the topic ‘Everyone Connected – enjoying the benefits of the digital age’.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
