App development plans to be hatched at WakefieldPublished: 27th Apr 2007, 20:42:40 | Permalink | Printable
Plus, should open source coding be charity-supported?A group of RISC OS users will hold a 'fringe meeting' at Wakefield to discuss how to fuel future software development. The gathering are set to prop up the bar at the event in May, while bashing their heads together to plan how to take RISC OS forward. All visitors to the show are welcome to join them.
The meet-up was arranged during a drobe.co.uk discussion thread that stemmed from the cancellation of the Oregano 3 project. It is hoped the group will thrash out ideas on how to spur on development of new software, which may not be necessarily commercially viable to produce.
Drobe contributor Paul Stewart said: "The idea of the meeting is to discuss the best way forward to bring new software developments to RISC OS.
"Many of us either complain publicly or in private about the lack of certain software and the lack of updates to other pieces of software. Here is your chance as a member of the RISC OS community to sit down with like minded people and see if we can get involved with creating a brighter future for our platform."
The meet-up is set to take place at 2pm on the day of the show in the bar area.
• Graham Shaw has suggested creating a charity specifically to fund and promote the development of open source software on RISC OS.
