Anyone with an interest in coding on RISC OS – at any level – is invited
to join an initial fireside chat, starting at 7:30pm on Saturday, 26th
November. Organised as part of Paolo Zaino’s RISC OS Community project,
from an initial idea by Andrew McCarthy, the aim is to hold a series of
meetings on the subject of Coding on RISC OS, and this one is intended
to be the first.

There will be no rigid structure to the meeting, instead it will be an
informal one, at which the direction and subject matter will be
discussed in a more general way, with some specific points to be raised
either by Paolo himself or, if he is unable to make it, Andrew McCarthy
on his behalf.

There are no requirements to be an expert programmer, to be doing so in
a professional capacity, or to be using a specific language; the meeting
is open to anyone. If you’re a beginner in BASIC or someone adept in
assembler; if you’re a capable C coder or a practising python
professional; even if you use another language entirely, it doesn’t
matter – if you are interested in programming on the platform, this get
together is for you.

The meeting will be held online, using the Zoom video conferencing
system, so you can join in from anywhere, as long as you have an
internet connection and a device on which the software can be run.

You will also need the credentials to join the meeting, and these are
available from Andrew McCarthy, by sending him a direct message on
ChatCube from your RISC OS desktop, using the Twitter or Mastodon social
media platforms, or by email if you’ve previously been in contact with
him before. His Twitter/Mastodon links are:

If none of those are possible, you can also get them by sending an email
