The next meeting of the RISC OS User Group Of London will be:

RISC OS Documentation Project

Back at last year’s June meeting, Chris Evans discussed plans to update the RISC OS Welcome Guide so that it would be useful to new users of Raspberry Pi, Beagleboard and Pandaboard based systems.

Bernard Boase has taken up the challenge of coordinating the changes and was signing up volunteers to help at the London Show. At this month’s meeting he will tell us more about the aims of the project and showing off the progress that has already been made.

Suggestions on what to include and how best to present the information will be welcome, as will more volunteers!

2014 Meetings

We are still looking for speakers and topics for 2014. If there is something you would like to see covered, or (even better!) if there is a subject/program you can talk about or demonstrate, please get in touch.

South West Show

The next show on the RISC OS calender is the South West Show on Saturday 1st March. ROUGOL will be there, do come and say hello!

Meeting announcements and the occasional other technology related message can now be received by following @rougol on Twitter.

The usual arrangements

Admittance is free and everyone is welcome. A range of hot and cold food, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, will be on sale.

Anyone with wireless enabled handhelds or laptops can access the internet during the meeting, or (if time allows) use ROUGOL’s RiscPC to do so after the main presentation has finished.

The venue is between London Bridge and Borough tube stations, so readily accessible by public transport (both stations are a five minute walk away, through well lit and CCTV’d main streets). It also has ample cycle parking (covered by CCTV) very close by.

If you are arriving by car, the Congestion Charge ends at 6pm and our meeting starts much later. However, please note that parking on double red lines is restricted at all times. On single red or yellow lines it is best to park after 7pm. If you are not familiar with *central* London parking or driving, please allow extra time, patience, and maps.

If you need any help reaching the venue, or any other information, please contact us by email, via Twitter, or telephone on 07970 211 629.
