For over thirty years, Capital Network Solutions has helped Northern California businesses solve their technology problems.  However, our commitment to the Sacramento community doesn’t end at the computer terminal.  Besides providing IT support to local organizations, we also provide charitable support to local nonprofits like the Children’s Law Center of California.

If you need personal assistance with technology, we urge you to check out the Sacramento Public Library’s ongoing Tech Help program.  Every Tuesday and Saturday from 2 to 3 p.m., staffers at the Sylvan Oaks location in Citrus Heights will answer your basic technology questions.  Visit to get free advice about things like email, Microsoft Word, Excel and more.  Assistance gets administered on a first-come, first-serve basis.

In that same spirit of helping, CNS also likes to promote upcoming Sacramento science and technology events.  In this post, we highlight a handful of the top technology-related events happening in the Sacramento area in November.  Click the title of the event to learn more, including ticket information, on Eventbrite.
