Wakey Wakey, it's show time again!

[A badly spelt AA roadsign]Once again it's time for the Wakefield show, the 11th one to be exact. Just for you lucky punters, roughly 30 exhibitors will be attending the show this year, and as usual the theatre has a packed programme throughout the day. In addition to this, there's also a "RISC OS in action" section, manned by Ian Chamberlain and sponsored by Qercus, which will have a number of demonstrations of RISC OS in use on A9 and Iyonix computers doing various tasks.

Exhibitors this year include Castle Technology, Genesys Developments, MW Software and the NetSurf development team, who will be demonstrating the latest developments on the open source browser.

VirtualAcorn will also be present, demonstrating their latest addition to their product family, VirtualRPC-SA, which provides emulation of the StrongARM processor in addition to the Arm710 processor it previously supported.

The theatre programme for this year's show is as follows:

TimePresentation
10:30John Cartmell
10:45Advantage6 - Part 1
11:30Castle Technology
13:00Paul Middleton - RISCOS Ltd.
14:00ArtWorks 2
15:00Advantage6 - Part 2

Parking at Thornes Park Athletics Stadium is free, and entry to the show costs 6, with under 5 year olds getting in free (I'd imagine that's physical age, not mental age!) The show is open from 10am until 5pm on Saturday 13th of May.

If you're going to the show this year and would like to share your thoughts of the show with us, please get in touch!

Have the AA signs always said "RISCO OS"? I'd never noticed.
