Cancelled - RISC OS Direct discussion
Bernard Boase
Monday 16th March 2020, 7:45pm

This meeting had to be cancelled at the last minute following the change in government advice regarding visiting pubs and public gatherings due to the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus.

Announced at last year's London Show, RISC OS Direct is a collaboration between RISC OS Developments and WiFi Sheep to produce a beginner friendly installation of RISC OS for the Raspberry Pi along with a series of YouTube tutorial videos to show how to make best use of it. The Pi disc image and the first of the videos were released to coincide with last month's South West Show.

At this month's ROUGOL meeting Bernard Boase will be leading us on a tour of the new distribution to see what is included, particularly for new users, and how this differs from the standard RISC OS Open image. As this is the first release there will no doubt be things that could be changed/improved, so be sure to join in the discussion with your own thoughts and ideas. If time allows we will also watch some/all of the first tutorial video.

As an added bonus Bernard will have his Pi connected to the pub wifi using PiFi v3, and will use that to demonstrate the latest beta release of the Iris web browser, which was also released to RISC OS Developments subscribers at the SW Show.
