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?

Next meeting - Monday 18th September 2017 
Return to RISC OS - Jason Tribbeck

Jason Tribbeck was a well known name in the Acorn world in the late 1990s and early 2000s. He ported several games to RISC OS such as Xenon II, James Pond II and Dune II (clearly he only did sequels!), and then went on to develop the Argo Internet Suite before moving on to other things as Argonet changed focus.

He has recently returned to the RISC OS scene after 15 years away and resurrected some of his programming projects. Jason has kindly agreed to come along to talk about those early projects, what he's been upto since then, his experiences on returning to RISC OS, and his plans for further development of his C programming library ROVlib. Maybe we'll also find out what happened to the Steel Cobra...
