RISC OS User Group Of London
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 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?

RISC OS Developments Ltd - Richard Brown
Following last month's exciting announcements that RISC OS Developments had acquired Castle and hence the RISC OS license, and then open sourced it, Richard Brown will be putting on his ROD hat and coming along to ROUGOL to tell us how it came about and their future plans for the OS.
Richard will also be talking about ROD's software funding ambitions. As he also announced at the show their main focus has been to get a fully featured web browser developed (ported) for RISC OS. They now have funds for this but are struggling to find any/enough developers to take on the challenge.
For those that missed the London Show, or didn't get a chance to ask their question in the hussle
and bussle of the show, this is the perfect opportunity to have a longer and more informal chat
with Richard over a drink and some food :-)
