So if this was a news nybble, it would be a nybble about having a nibble, then?
The RISC OS User Group of London‘s next meeting will take place on Monday, 19th December, and with no set topic of formal speaker arranged, the group will instead take the opportunity to have an informal discussion about what has happened in the RISC OS world during 2016, and what people hope to see happen in 2017 – and all of this over a drink and a meal.
The meeting will take place from around 7:45pm at the usual venue:
173 Borough High Street,
Usually, the group would meet upstairs, in the restaurant, but high seasonal demand for restaurant space means it may be necessary to meet downstairs in the bar – which is also why a formal speaker isn’t arranged for the December meeting. Other than that, though, everything remains the same.
Anyone with an interest in RISC OS is welcome to attend the meeting, for which there is no admittance fee. The Blue-Eyed Maid serves a range of food and drinks, and can be found a short walk (through streets that are well lit and have good CCTV coverage) from either of London Bridge and Borough tube stations.
For those who like pedal power, there is ample cycle parking nearby, also covered by CCTV, and for those who prefer the comfort of their own car, bear in mind this is central London: The Congestion Charge ends at 6:00pm, but watch out for parking – avoid double red lines completely, and for single red or yellow lines it’s best to wait until after 7:00pm. The usual advice given by ROUGOL for those wishing to brave driving in central London is to allow extra time, patience, and maps.
Whichever method of travel you choose, if you need any help finding the venue, you can contact the group by email, via the @ROUGOL Twitter account, or by telephone on 07970 211 629.
Looking ahead, the January meeting will take place on January 16th, 2017, with Rob Sprowson from Elesar Ltd as the guest speaker. First and foremost, Rob will be talking about and demonstrating CloudFS (a new version of which has just been released) – but in addition to that, he has a number of other projects under development at the moment, and expects to reveal one of them for the very first time at the meeting.
And if you want to plan ahead even further, the 2017 London Show will be taking place on 28th October, at the St Giles Hotel, Feltham.
