The Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club provides a friendly face for all things RISC OS in Yorkshire, the surrounding regions and beyond. Originally formed as the Wakefield BBC Micro User Group in 1983, it is one of the longest established RISC OS user groups and now has members all over the UK.
The group meets every other month to look at subjects relating to RISC OS, publishes a monthly newsletter, The WROCC, and provides an online discussion group to keep its members informed. We also organise the annual Wakefield RISC OS Computer Show, which is now firmly established in the platform’s calendar.
For more information about the group, contact us or visit one of our meetings. You can find out more about RISC OS in our brief introduction to the operating system or discover new hints, tips and tricks in our RISC OS HowTo.
During the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, WROCC is following UK Government guidance and this is having an effect on our activities. Meetings are currently suspended, and we advise members and visitors to keep an eye on the website, newsletter and announcements through email or the usual RISC OS forums for updates.
Rob Coleman will be talking about emulating other 8-bit micros on the Beeb, including the Sinclair ZX81, Jupiter Ace, ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC, using a Raspberry Pi via the Tube. Andy Vawer will be talking about his current and recent projects, having returned to the RISC OS fold after several years away in Linux-land. He will give some background of what he worked on originally back in the 90s-00s, and then cover the bounty bits (Clipboard and PNGs), and possibly reveal some new projects. Steve Fryatt will be talking about some of the projects that he’s found the time to work on during the past six months.
This meeting will be held using Zoom video conferencing – to request the meeting details nearer the time, email email@example.com.
