Events   Events : AmiCon Party - Report and Pictures
   posted by COBRA on 9-Dec-2008 9:53:42 (3353 reads)
The second AmiCon Party of 2008 took place last weekend in Pomaz, Hungary (near Budapest). The event, which started out originally as a small gathering of local AmigaOne owners has grown in popularity throughout the years. It has a really nice retro atmosphere, where people from all favours of Amiga and Amiga-like systems share their common interests and experiences.

This time we had a number of AmigaOne machines running AmigaOS 4.1 for anyone to play with, and also a Sam440 system running AmigaOS 4.1, as well as Debian Linux (many thanks to Philippe Ferrucci for helping me set it up). To complete the next-gen range, we also had an Efika and a Pegasos2 system running the latest version of MorphOS. We had a number of really nice classic hardware, a number of A1200's were there for gaming entertainment, we had a look at the inside of an A1000's case which contains the signatures of all who participated in its development (including Jay Miner's) and more exotic hardware, such as an old Commodore-branded calculator! There was a very interesting piece of hardware which is being developed here in Hungary called the ScanJuggler, which is an internal scandoubler for an A1200 that gave an incredibly sharp picture of a PAL signal on an LCD Monitor.

An important announcement was made that after a long time, there is now an official Amiga dealer again in Hungary, who has become the exclusive distributor of ACube's products (such as Sam440 and OS4.1) for the whole of Eastern Europe, an announcent of that will follow soon.

The party was extremely successful and we received a lot of positive feedback, we will surely have it next year too, most likely at a bigger venue due to the increasing popularity of the event.

Some pictures of the event can be found here and here

Yeah, pizza always cool there. We have promise to have in-house made versions next time. (development and betatesting ongoing currently, so we will have )

Everyone welcome, if want to join. I hope sooner or later we'll outgrow the place and these gatherings will be more often. But it doesn't depends on me only. I'll be there.

We hold the event twice a year so we'll most likely have one in the first half of 2009 and one in the second half, but many people indicated that they would like to have it more often, so who knows... and now that the Sam440 is on sale with the cheaper Flex version just around the corner, and with an official distributor starting up now in Hungary, I think next time we have the party, there will be more next-gen machines there, so we'll definitely need to find a bigger venue. It would be nice if some people would come from other countries too, the atmosphere at AmiCon is always amazing...
