About Us: CAUG is an independent group of software developers and users of Microsoft Access and related products. Our mission is to meet and share information, techniques, and ideas, the fourth Thursday of each month. Visitors are welcome! Come check us out.


Membership: Membership is absolutely free and mostly consists of being on the CAUG email distribution list. Member experience varies from seasoned pros to Microsoft Access newcomers. CAUG can't be everything to everyone and we don't even try. If you like, simply attend meetings that interest you and skip those that do not.


Location: CAUG is hosted by the New Horizons Computer Learning Centers in Chicago.

New Horizons is located at: 
525 W. Van Buren St
Suite 300
Chicago, IL 60607

Phone: 773-693-6000


Our Next Meeting: Thursday, May 24th, 2018 / 6 p.m.  


Topic: Using Microsoft's Universal Windows Platform
The Universal Windows Platform (“UWP”) is used to develop advanced software applications for Windows 10 systems. ASI is developing a framework on which to base its applications. After a brief introduction by Noel, Eric will be giving a high-level overview of UWP development, our framework, and a current UWP project. View our dedicated UWP site at www.uwpsystems.com, for a sneak peek.
