30 years up in ARMs - Clive Semmens

This month we will be welcoming Clive Semmens as our guest speaker, who will be talking about his 30 years of working and playing with ARM processors.

Starting from when he purchased an Archimedes computer for a classroom in Stornoway, all the way up to the present day still using them in retirement, writing programs for RISC OS such as his Draw to SVG converter, and now a regular contributor on the RISC OS Open forums.

In the middle of that long period, Clive spent ten years working at ARM, where he was the senior technical author on the ARM ARM, that is the ARM Architecture Reference Manual. Clive is happy to answer questions about this and any other aspects of his 30 years up in ARMs!
