Two RISC OS user group meetings are taking place in the next few days, one in Bristol and one in Southampton.
Insert witty comment about Witty Pi here. Um… that’ll do.
The next meeting of Bristol RISC OS Users (BRU) will take place on Wednesday, 8th March, at the Hope and Anchor pub in Bristol – and, as ever, anyone with an interest in RISC OS who is in the area is welcome to come along; there are no membership or entry fees.
Running from around 7:30pm until closing time, the meetings are generally informal in nature, and consist of a group of like-minded people meeting up for a chat over a pie1 and a pint2.
And possibly – just possibly – some gaming fun, too1.
The next meeting of Bristol RISC OS Users (BRU) will take place on Wednesday, 11th January, and this month Chris Hall will be showing off a £6.00 OLED display, sporting a whopping 128×64 pixel resolution and connected to a Raspberry Pi Zero.
This is the latest evolution of Chris’ GPS project, with the display showing the Ordnance Survey grid reference, milepost mileage (which will generally show zero unless you are on or very near the Severn Valley Railway, since this part of the software relates to that), and the time.
The next meeting of Bristol RISC OS Users (BRU) is Wednesday 9th November, starting at around 7:00-7:30pm (though some of the group may arrive earlier1) and continuing until closing time. The meeting will take place at:
38 Jacobs Wells Road,
Horsham, Southampton, Bristol, Midlands, Wessex… Everybody talk about… pop music! No, hang on, that’s not right.
There are quite a number of user group meetings taking place over the next week, so it seems sensible to wrap them up in a single post, covering all of those up to and including next Saturday (17th September).
Southampton, 10. Bristol, 11. Wait, sorry, no – those are dates, not scores.
Tuesday, 10th May is the date of this month’s Southampton RISC OS User Group meeting. Organised as usual by Dave Higton, the meeting will run from around 7:00pm until around 9:00pm, and everyone is welcome to attend. So, with free admittance, if you’re in or around Southampton the place you’ll want to head for is:
A chance to see the @Raspberry_Pi Zero running RISC OS!
The next meeting of Bristol RISC OS Users is due to take place next Wednesday – the 13th – and attendees will have the chance to see a Raspberry Pi in action, thanks to regular Chris Hall, who plans to bring his along.
Southampton tomorrow, Bristol the next day… then, the WORLD! BWAHAHA! Or something.
Tuesday, 10th November sees the Southampton RISC OS User Group meet up, from 19:00 until 21:00 at its usual venue, the Sports Centre of Itchen College, Deacon Road, Southampton. The meeting takes place in the College Centre, which is an open area with tables and chairs, adjacent to the Sports Centre Reception desk.
Two regular user group meetings are set to take place in the next few days.
