Building RISC OS Online, Mon 16th Nov 2020

Post by helpful »

November's online meeting of the RISC OS User Group Of London will be:

Building RISC OS Online, presented by Gerph
Monday 16th November 2020, 7.45pm
Online via Zoom, meeting open from 7.30pm
http://rougol.jellybaby.net/meetings/index.html

After many years away, Gerph made a welcome return to the RISC OS world on the 1st April this year with JFPatch-as-a-service. But this was no April Fool, and he plans to develop it further into an online RISC OS build tool.

JFPatch started life in 1995, when he needed a way to build modules easily without writing all that boilerplate. This was in the days when software could be downloaded from BBSs and email was genuinely newfangled. Jump forward 25 years, and cloud systems are everywhere and online applications give you everything you want. Running 25 year old software as a cloud service seems like it's a bit of a niche area, but it hides some clever technology.

Although the service itself was written in about 20 days, it builds upon a year's work to get to that point. Gerph will talk about why he started doing RISC OS things again, quite a bit about how the service and front end works, and a little about how other people might use it. There will be a demonstration of the service and of the underlying technologies, and he will take questions from the talk afterwards.

This meeting held online via Zoom. Please contact us to receive a link to the meeting on the day.

Bryan.

I highly recommend it to anyone at all interested in testing/development processes. He's done some amazing stuff!
