ABOUT ROUGOL

ROUGOL is a not-for-profit organisation consisting of Acorn/RISC OS computer users in London and the south-east. Our aim is to bring those users together. There is no membership fee and entry to all meetings is free. To find out more, email us.

MEETINGS

Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month. Most meetings feature a guest speaker, demonstrating the latest hardware or software, giving tutorials of software both new and old, or simply to kick off discussions on the current hot topic. Entrance is free, so why not come along and say hello?


Next meeting - Monday 21st June 2021 
RISC OS in those StrongARM days - Mike Stephens, ex-Acorn and Pace programmer

Mike Stephens worked at Acorn from 1994 to late 1998 as a Principal Programmer. He left Acorn soon after Phoebe & Ursula were cancelled. About 2 years later, he rejoined colleagues at Pace to work further on RISC OS. His talk will be a mix of reminiscing about late-Acorn and some low-level technical details.

Some things that he worked on include:

Michael left Pace soon after they cancelled all RISC OS work, and is excited to see there is still a love for it and there is active work after all these years!

The meeting will be held online via Zoom. Please contact us to be sent a link to the meeting on the day. (If you have attended any meeting this year, it is the same link!)
