Luckily, though, only in the form of a video game!

AMCOG Games‘ Tony Bartram will be the guest speaker at the next meeting of the Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club, which takes place on Wednesday, 6th June, at 7:45pm. Tony will be talking about games development on RISC OS, along with creating audio-visual effects.

Also: Pictures and words from Clive Semmens’ recent talk now online.

Announced a couple of weeks ago and taking place in two days time, Andrew Conroy will be the guest speaker at this month’s RISC OS User Group of London meeting. Regularly seen at shows with his CJE Micro’s employee hat on, Andrew exhibited at this year’s Southwest Show in his own right, exhibiting many interfacing projects using the Raspberry Pi and, of course, RISC OS. It is this subject that he will be talking about in London. For more details, please refer to the previous announcement, or the meetings page on the ROUGOL website.

Last month, Clive Semmens was the group’s guest speaker, covering his thirty years working and playing with ARM processors. The page on the ROUGOL website referring to the meeting has since been updated with a few photographs, and links to resources that Clive himself has made available – what he said (PDF), and the pictures supporting his talk.

There will probably be flashing – but don’t worry, it’ll be LEDs rather than Andrew himself.

The next meeting of the RISC OS User Group of London – ROUGOL – will take place two weeks today, on 21st May, and the guest speaker will be Andrew Conroy.

Although Andrew will be recognised by many people as one of the faces of CJE Micro’s, regularly in attendance as one of the team at RISC OS shows, he also uses RISC OS in his spare time – and his talk in London will centre around one aspect of that: Raspberry Pi interfacing projects, for which he uses BBC BASIC.
