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 25th October 2014. Visit the show website for more information.

Next meeting - Monday 20th October 2014 
APDL, TechGuides, and a Potted History of Acorn - David Bradforth

David Bradforth has been involved in the RISC OS world for many years in the guise of Alligata Media, but has recently had a particularly busy few months.

He has been involved in the preservation and relaunch of the APDL website as a lasting legacy of Dave Holden's work.

He is also about to launch TechGuides, a magazine and support service for all those little technical problems and queries that you may have. This will cover PC, Mac, Linux and RISC OS.

Last but definitely not least, he is in preparing a new book titled A Potted History of Acorn Computers which will document Acorn from its beginnings through to its demise; the key products over that time; the companies that supported the computers and the magazines that were within the market.

David will be talking about all of these projects and giving us some sneak previews!
