All-day 'Virtual' ABug session #7, Sat 5th September 2020, 9am - 11pm. Supporting CCfCH. *ACORN/ACORNSOFT Special*

Post by Arcadian »

[Dave here, stepping in for Jason aka jbnbeeb, who is away at the moment]

The seventh all-day "Virtual" ABug meeting will take place on Saturday, September 5th and will be presented in association with the Centre for Computing History museum in Cambridge.

Had it not been for CV19 - we would have been staging a physical ABug gathering at the museum (combined with an "Acorn World" event) on the same weekend. However the museum doors remain closed hence the event will now take the form of a virtual event using Zoom.

Times remain difficult for our allies at the museum; they effectively lost all of their weekly income overnight when the lockdown kicked in. Therefore we encourage any members that are in a position to do so, to make a donation to support the museum via their Just Giving page.

This event will be packed full of talks from ex-Acorn/Acornsoft personnel and will also feature some content broadcast directly from the museum.

The running time is 9am - 11pm UK time.

To reserve a place, please respond in this thread and advise which session(s) you think you'll be able to attend (Morning, Afternoon, Evening).

We intend to cap the event at 50 places. All presentations will be recorded and will be added to the ABug.org.uk website in the week following the event.

    However you can use the #abug-chat channel on the Stardot Discord server to discuss active presentations. The Zoom text chat will be reopened after each presentation has finished. More info here.

  • We request that all users create an account on Zoom (which enables the addition of a profile image) and set a profile image that features at least their first name and/or forum handle.

    Pre-created profile images are available here. If you're new to Virtual ABug events and would like a custom profile image to be created for you, please send a PM to Arcadian.

Can everyone posting please indicate what sessions(s) they're likely to be around for? Or state 'all day' if you expect to be online for most of the morning, afternoon and evening sessions. Ta!

I want to attend in the morning. If possible I want to demonstrate the Electron WiFi somewhere between 10:00 and 11:00. I think half an hour is enough, including time for questions.

Thanks for all the responses so far, I'll aim to update the list in the top post Monday evening.

If anyone that hasn't already indicated which sessions they're likely to attend is able to update their post in the mean time (Morning / Afternoon / Evening or ALL) that would be appreciated.

But as it stands, 25/50 places have now been claimed.
