@wawa

BUZZZ, wrong, I was interested.
And you point out. I was totally lost. i.e. I thought aros was for intel hardware only, no 68k (which I like)

Then Jason explained (very patiently)

Your points prove my point. It's not as easy as we think and we need to be taught (encourged)

Like At AmiWest! Where we encourge everyone to bring hardware problems/software problems.
Not because we have all the fixes, but we're willing to help find answers.

AmiWest is and always has been classic amiga first. Why do you think we start with the Classic Clinic?

without Classic, there is no next gen!!!

The most important point! no force, of any sort...

We invite everyone!!! (even mac fans) it helps get cheap deals for morph guys (evil grin)

LOL

It is difficult to attend for most europeans and too expensive. Would it be possible to make a kind of video-presentation using Skype or similar?

its pretty easy. if you are interested in 68k only you can download aros68k nightlly or olafs aros vision distro (big) and decompress it to a uae drive, be it hardfile or mounted dir. after you booted it you will discover everything is in place you are accustomed to from aos. you cant expect anybody to guide your every step, you must discover it yourself if you want.

It was related programming seminar, my answer is a fallow up on the clam by Olaf25.
I understand your concern about going off topic.

@NutsAboutAmiga

You do know? (I hope) that the programming part is setup by Friends of AmiWest...
Just before (Thur and Fri) AmiWest starts Friday night.

We host them, help with the hotel and stuff like that.
They like to attend the show and make annoucements from the Show, which is great.
They help and contribute in lots of major ways. They pay for their own lunches, bring their own gear.
etc.

But the programming thing is done in conjuction with Amiwest which is run by Sacramento Amiga Computer Club (S.A.C.C.)

This thread is about AmiWest and SACC would love to do it all in two and a half days...
Which is why I keep inviting you and everyone else to pitch in.

Please come and do a 3.1 programming thing at AmiWest, I promise I will be there.

Tell me how I can help!

I am one of the found-ing AmiWest committee!

I do not think of users watching a stream but developers (or distribution maintainers in case of Aros) that are in germany or poland or somewhere else making a video presentation. If that would be possible a lot more would be possible for sure.

we could long discuss about the other topic but then we should start another thread, here it would be offtopic

that is not completely true. Jason was one of the biggest contributor to Aros 68k and I think he even showed Aros 68k running on FPGA Arcade (that he owns). What is propably true that he concentrated on X86 where most Aros devs are involved. There is a new Icaros Desktop soon available. Perhaps it would be interesting for people to hear more including the 68k integration (just a personal idea). I could ask but that needs that it is possible to make a presentation from europe.

Does not Steven Solie normally do the programming sessions.

It's a long travel, I love to come, but think I will need to stay on my side of the ocean.
I can show you have to make 3.1 a program in 680x0 assembler under AmigaOS4.1

@OlafS25

I might do a long blog entry about how to make cross platform programs in C/C++.

I might need to dived it up into more then one blog entry because subject is big and there are different ways you can solve differences between operating systems.

@OlafS25
A bit of mis-understanding...

Before Jason came to AmiWest and showed the many ways AROS could be used...
I didn't know anything until after his presentation and I visited his table at AmiWest.

Thanks for proving my point again as to why We need get togethers.

We did years ago, do a teleconfrence with the UK.... so maybe?

I'll bring it up at the meeting this coming Monday!

@NutsAboutAmiga

Most of the folks at AmiWest wear different hats (amiga speak multi-task)

Steve (one of his hats) and other guys present at the programming part.
Lyle did at least half of the presenting last year.
Other names escape me at the moment (sorry guys)

I'm sorry you can't attend in person, but check out the web cast.

Thanks for the quick look at 68xxx on your blog,

M

No, like everything at AmiWest, it is a team of volunteers effort. This year we'll have Paul, Bill, Andy, Tony and myself helping people out with their projects.

You know, I don't really care what programming language or platform people want to use. The hard part is getting people to invest their time into coding. However, we needed to keep focused given we only have 2 days so we are going with C on AmigaOS 4.1. The hope is that with a tight focus we may be able to crank out some working software this year.

@number6

Thanks for keeping this up #6. Your work is greatly appreciated!

I'm getting excited about this year's show. There has been a lot happening in the Amiga world and it will be fun to see what will be officially announced, rumored or absent.

Cheers,
Bill "tekmage" Borsari

I expect somebody will. It has become a pretty popular trick in recent weeks.

@thread

a couple of quick updates from the amiwest blog today:

  • CBMstuff.com (JimDrew) has decided to attend as a vendor and sponsor
  • Dave Morris (amigadave) has decided to attend as an exhibitor
  • Andy Broad (broadblues) will be the keynote speaker

    this is shaping up to be a terrific get-together, so if you have the means to be in sacramento on october 24th, finish those travel plans now! i look forward to seeing you there.

    AmiWest is urging anyone wishing to attend the banquet to reserve NOW.

    Quote:
    Today we invoiced those who have signed up for the AmiWest 2014 banquet. I must say that we have about twice as many signed up this year as we did last year at this point.

    We don't want to leave anyone out. Please use the link at the top of this blog page to make your reservations for the banquet featuring Amiga developer and professional musician Andy Broad from the UK.

    Tickets may sell out for this event! Don't be disappointed. Reserve yours today.

    AmiWest or bust! Shutting down this X1000 now and headed to the airport in a few hours for my second trip to Sacramento and Amiwest, following a few days in San Francisco. See some of you soon!

    It's a big wide world and distances are too great for most of us to get together at events like AmiWest, but wherever you are if you are able to share camaraderie with Amigans and friends in any venue I encourage it. It's great fun, and only a small amount of it has to do with OS announcements, etc.
