Unigroup wishes you a Happy New Year 2016!
** For January 2016, Unigroup's meeting is happening ONE WEEK EARLIER than normal (on the 2nd Thursday), due to easier classroom availability at that time.
Unigroup is pleased to announce our January 2016 meeting, which will cover the latest Intel CPU Architecture Roadmaps. Unigroup's Intel Contact, Charles Milo, will be back to update us regarding the latest CPU features, and what to look for in the newest CPU releases.
Unigroup Elections: Unigroup holds Board of Director Elections every January. If you are a Unigroup Member and would like to run for the Unigroup Board, please contact us on or before our January meeting.
