Documentation updates

Presented by Bernard Boase

Monday 17th August 2015, 7:45pm

The Blue-Eyed Maid (upstairs in the Spice Lounge restaurant)
173 Borough High Street
London, SE1 1HR

At last year’s January meeting, Bernard told us about plans to update the RISC OS documentation so that it would be useful to new users, particularly those enticed to try RISC OS on the Raspberry Pi.

Since then things have moved on and following discussion in the RISC OS Open Ltd Forum between March and July this year, ROOL have made new recommendations about how to use volunteer effort to contribute updates to Acorn’s RISC OS 3.6/3.7 User Guide for eventual publication.

Bernard will be bringing along ROOL’s recently released new Style Guide so everyone can see the type of documentation that can be produced. A copy of the old guide will also be available for comparison.

This initiative supersedes the work initiated by CJE Micro’s two years ago, and Bernard’s efforts are now directed towards ROOL’s objective. More volunteers are, as ever, needed!

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.

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 by telephone on 07970 211 629.
