With the show going online this year, it will take the form of a virtual theatre with the following talks. See the venue page for ways to join in starting from 10:30.

  • 11:00 - Elesar Ltd
    Rob Sprowson will be giving updates on the Elesar product range, which includes software products Prophet, CloudFS, and FontDirectoryPro, plus hardware addons such as the Raspberry Pi WiFi HAT.

  • 11:30 - Cloverleaf Project
    Stefan Fröhling will be giving the latest news on the Cloverleaf crowdfunding project. This will include details of their instant messaging program ChatCube and their plans to fill other missing areas in the RISC OS software catalogue. They also aim to release a series of machines based around the Rockchip RK3399 processor, featuring a 2GHz ARM A72 core which would make them the fastest RISC OS systems available.

  • 12:30 - Software Preservation, Phil Pemberton
    Members of ABUG (Acorn and BBC User Group) have recently ramped up efforts to archive and preserve the software catalogue from all Acorn systems. The BBC Micro archive is fairly complete, but RISC OS archiving has so far been fairly erratic. Phil Pemberton will be telling us about the current ABUG plans and encouraging everyone to check their cupboards for those long lost software gems.
