ROUGOL logo Welcome to
RISC OS User Group Of London



ROUGOL is a not-for-profit organisation consisting of Acorn/RISC OS computer 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 17th January 2022 
Recoding the Classics - Jeroen Vermeulen

Jeroen Vermeulen has been porting some of the games from the Raspberry Pi book Coding the Classics across to RISC OS. First by converting them to BBC BASIC, and then once the RISC OS Python version had matured enough, by porting the code directly across.

Jeroen will tell us about the issues involved in doing these ports, and maybe encourage you to try some yourself!
