Here is our AmiWest 2010 seminar schedule.

This year, our video stream to the internet, including these seminars, is being recorded for future reference. If successful, we hope to publish this in DVD format for an as-yet-to-be-determined contribution to AmiWest.
Our expert presenters in past years have had more than enough to fill all available time so we are scheduling fewer seminars with larger time slots.

some of the latest Amiga API changes and how you can save time
by using these new APIs."


4 PM - Steven continued, SAM 460ex

5 PM - Show floor closes for banquet preparations.

I've booked a table at AmiWest for the Amiga Users of Calgary (AMUC). I hope to have a Sam460ex and/or X1000 to show off at the table. I may also bring along my Sam440-flex system.

If anybody has some cool software to show off please let me know and I can demo it at my table for you.

That's a very good hotel price. I haven't found a lower price anywhere else yet.

There is a Super 8 Hotel a few miles away on Madison Avenue at $42.49 a night (not including room tax), and there is a Motel 6 a few miles away in North Highlands at $45.99 a night (not including room tax). Motel 6 offers Wi-fi for an additional fee. Wi-fi at Super 8 is free. Motel 6 offers coffee. Super 8 offers a breakfast. Of the two, the Super 8 is the higher quality establishment.
http://www.motel6.com http://www.super8.com

So, if you stay at Super 8 instead of the Holiday Inn Express, for 3 nights you'd save over $100 (that's including any tax you'd save).

I ended up booking at the Holiday Inn Express in the end.

Plus the hotel is brand new so it will have that new hotel smell.

This is not a safe area at night. The motel across the street may be a brothel. (It's been raided by the sheriff's department.) This section of Watt Avenue and Auburn Boulevard is well known locally for prostitution and crime. You have been warned. EDIT: Basically, avoid anything with a North Highlands address. If it were me, I would stay at the Sheraton or the Hyatt in downtown Sacramento. They're really not that much more expensive. The Hilton off Arden Way should be OK as well. Has anyone stayed at the Holiday Inn off Madison Avenue recently?

Dancing fruit doesn't count as content? Bah!

Speaking on content, are there any seminars people would like to see at AmiWest this year?

Last year I did a thang on Amiga Python modules. This year I'm thinking of doing a "Modern Amiga Programming" seminar where I explore the new ways to do things (e.g. new DOS API for scanning a directory) and so on. Ideas are welcome.

From an European view, I find it great that an Amiga event can take place in North America.

I wish you a lot of fun !

@thread,

As I have done for the past 2 years, I will again be showing the latest version of MorphOS2.x at the AmiWest 2010 Show this October. This year I will be showing MorphOS2.5 or 2.6 (if released in time) on four different computers, including; my Efika inside a new case that I am working on, 1.5GHz G4 MacMini, 1.25GHz G4 eMac (more about this machine below), and finally, MorphOS2.6 Beta Release (if the Public release is not finished in time) running on my Dual 1.25GHz G4 PowerMac. A demo of the "Pack Ultimate" (organized by Papiosaur) for MorphOS2.5 and above will also be shown on one or more of the above computers.

I will also be running the Amiga Game Competition again this year and have even better prizes for the winners. The grand prize is the above mentioned 1.25GHz G4 eMac w/1gb RAM & 160gb hdd set up to dual boot MacOSX & MorphOS2.5. The MorphOS Development Team has agreed to donate a license key to the winner of this computer upon completion of the competition. The eMac also has an AirPort card installed for WiFi & a Bluetooth module which are supported when running MacOSX (no MorphOS support yet). Other prizes include a stock A500 and a AmiKit CD plus more. (if anyone has other Amiga gear or software they would like to donate to the prize fund, please contact me ASAP) There will be a small entrance fee to participate in the Amiga Game Competition this year, $75 divided by the number of participants (only used to defray a portion of my costs to attend AmiWest).

I hope to see many of you there, please introduce yourselves. It is going to be the best AmiWest in many years, if not ever, so don't miss it. Also don't miss out on winning a dual booting eMac w/registered MorphOS2.5 license key, Amiga A500, or other prizes by entering the Amiga Game Competition.

Edit: With Trevor Dickenson and the A1-X1000 at the AmiWest 2010 Show and the Sam460, plus many other new items and news announcements, how can any of you even think about missing this year's AmiWest Show?!? It is going to have lots of everything for everyone, plus the usual great fun when a group of Amiga users get together. DO NOT MISS THIS AMIWEST SHOW!

@ssolie

It would be great to see Amiga C seminars on a regular basis.

If you did a monthly C programming tutorial I would pay money for it.

I cannot attent Amiwest, I hope the seminars are recorded

@thread

The news I want to hear at Amiwest would be :

1) What has been happening at A-eon/ Hyperion past few months.
2) X1000 release date, CPU reveal date, exact cost.
3) new software team to update API/software apps or teaching material. (CATS)
4) Reasure community the future is bright.

A bounty should be created to reconstruct a NEW RKRM for OS4.

Based on the following, please do not send any more donations to AmiZed to cover this year's attendance at Amiwest.

Quote:
No AmiWest 2010 for AmiZed

Hello everyone, just wanted to first thank ssolie for pimping the AmiWest 2010 donations on my website. I was kind of dumb founded when I checked my email to see donations all of a sudden after months of nothing. But I wanted to thank the folks that did donate today. I appreciate it. But...

It appears that because of events that transpired earlier today (Monday), that I won't be able to make the trip. So the question is now, should I roll it over or refund it. If you're one of the folks that donated, be on the lookout for an email from me, asking what you would like to do. In the mean time, I'm going to take the page offline till I know. But rest assured, I am going to put up an AmiWest 2011 page. And this time, pimp it a little better. LOL

But thanks for all the comments about the show, and thanks for listening!
