Is Zoom For Dummies just about meetings?
No, the book coves all of the tools in the Zoom suite. The longest chapter in the book focuses on Zoom meetings, but there’s plenty of non-meetings material in Zoom For Dummies.
I already use Zoom. Would Zoom For Dummies benefit me?
I’m biased here, but the answer is yes, yes yes! Odds are that you’re not familiar with every Zoom feature, option, and setting. I’d be astonished if experienced users don’t learn a great deal from Zoom For Dummies.
Zoom made a bunch of changes during its 90-day feature freeze. Does Zoom For Dummies reflect those changes?
Yes. I specifically wrote the meetings and security chapters towards the end of the writing process to ensure that the book would be as accurate as possible upon release.
Is Zoom For Dummies a book for regular users, admins, or developers?
As I’ve said many times, when you try to write a book for everyone, then you write a book for no one. In the case of Zoom For Dummies, I focus on the first two constituencies. At a few points, I mention resources for developers. Still, those who want to build their own third-party apps will have to look elsewhere.
Were Zoom employees involved in the writing of the book?
Yes. I shared early versions of key chapters with senior Zoom folks. In some cases, they clarified points that I could have made clearer. Make no mistake: This feedback was invaluable in the end.
