ROUGOL logo Welcome to
RISC OS User Group Of London



ROUGOL is a not-for-profit organisation consisting of RISC OS users in London and the south-east. Our aim is to bring those users together. There is no membership fee and entry to all meetings is free. To find out more, email us.


Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month. Most meetings feature a guest speaker, demonstrating the latest hardware or software, giving tutorials of software both new and old, or simply to kick off discussions on the current hot topic. Entrance is free, so why not come along and say hello?


The next RISC OS London Show is on Saturday 28th October 2017.

Next meeting - Monday 17th April 2017 
Otter browser and other ports - Chris Gransden

Chris Gransden has ported a number of programs from Linux to RISC OS, most notably the Otter web browser. This has been a significant development as it has made many more websites accessible from RISC OS.

Chris will be telling us about how these ports are done, what else he has been working on, and what improvements are to come.

He will also be giving us a sneak look at some currently unreleased ports using the Khronos OpenGL graphics library with hardware acceleration on the Raspberry Pi.

(Note: this meeting is on bank holiday Monday. This is an opportunity for those who can't normally get to the meetings due to work, or are put off by travelling through the rush hour, to come along! ROUGOL's venue is only a short walk from many major attractions, such as The Tower of London, Tower Bridge, HMS Belfast, The Globe Theatre and Tate Modern, so why not do some sightseeing then finish off the day with a meal and some RISC OS chat? :-)
