Wakefield workshop to demo top softwareBy Chris Williams. Published: 10th May 2006, 17:42:11 | Permalink | Printable
Theatre timetable now includes two AdvantageSix talksA workshop to highlight the best software available on RISC OS will be held at this year's Wakefield show. The aim of the stand is to allow experts to spend the day demonstrating their favourite software to other punters, and share tips and techniques - without a salesperson looming over their shoulders.
The initiative, organised by Drobe's Ian Chamberlain, will use A9home and Iyonix computers, allowing users to trial software alongside each offering.
Ian said: "You'll be able to see for yourselves why many users prefer to use RISC OS to perform exciting multimedia tasks like graphic design, desktop publishing and more.
"Demonstrations will be led by ordinary users who are passionate about RISC OS computing. We have something to offer everyone; If you have questions or you are looking for advice on RISC OS software and hardware, please come to our stand for independent advice."
If you'd like to take part in the workshop, drop Ian an email to wakefield2006 (at) namesindex (dot) com. He says he's already confident with showing off ArtWorks and Techwriter, but could do with others to share their knowledge.
• The theatre timetable for the Wakefield show has undergone a reshuffle of late. Due to pressure from punters traveling from afar, AdvantageSix will be holding their first presentation at 10.45am and a second at 3.15pm. The two talks will not be the same, so visitors are recommended to pop into both.
