I was happy to be invited and give a Virtual Technology Conference for the
members of APCUG. One of the questions after the presentation related to
Avast Omni. APCUG puts on these conferences four times a year on various
tech related topics. The only qualification for joining requires a membership in
a member club. I'm also a proud member of the APCUG Speakers Bureau.

We spent some time doing a hands on explanation of Avast Omni since that was of great interest to the club members.
