The event will take place on Saturday, 4th July, with doors open to the public from 11:00am until 4:00pm, at:
King Edward Vi School,
RiscPiC® cases for the Raspberry Pi will be available to purchase in the form of the mini version – and while these are still the original batch, which are not compatible ‘out of the box’ with the B+ and version 2 boards, the fault has been identified and the fix is quite easy; watch this space for instructions if you already have a RiscPiC-mini case!
You’ll be able to discuss and see demonstrations of software such as WebChange – which is free to download – and Soft Rock Software’s range of budget games from 1989-1994 will also be available to play, both on a Windows laptop running VirtualRiscPC, and on a Raspberry Pi.
Beyond Soft Rock Software and the other RISC OS exhibitors, there will be plenty to see and do at this event – which is run with an emphasis on education, so there are lots of things planned to occupy and inspire younger visitors, such as a Robot Wars event, and a competition to write a game in Scratch. There will also be dedicated Amiga and Retro areas, and much more.
See you there!
