The Tech Club meets the second Monday evening of each month from 7 to 8 p.m., in Room 104 at the Creative Arts Technology Center. We have no dues, and attendance is open for any Robson resident who is interested in anything that is high tech, regardless of what they own or understand, but have a desire to learn more about. As an enhancement to our Tech Club members, we are now offering presenter video recordings that can be accessed through membership in Groups.io (formerly known as Yahoo Groups) at rrtxtech.groups.io/g/main and our new website robsontech.club.

Our May 9 meeting was hosted by Paul Marriott (club officer). Paul’s main topic was “So You Want to Build a Website.” Paul offered an in-depth presentation on all aspects of creation of a website, including “What is a website, and can I build one myself?” “How do I get a website address/web URL?” “Where is the website located/hosted?” “How is the website built/coding aids/website builder?” “How much does it all cost?” and “Example of a website built using Ghost.”

There was much open dialog and interactive discussion during the meeting, including questions regarding the following: Asked to see what HTML coding is like, how to make a web page, and if you change a website, does that change the website posts?

At our general meeting session on June 13 we heard about EV cars.
