Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Recursion Computer Fair Saturday 2 July, Stratford-upon-Avon
   posted by yoodoo2 on 13-May-2016 8:27:01 (1148 reads)
Now in its 3rd year, the Recursion Computer Fair is back and will take place at King Edward VI School, Stratford-upon-Avon on Saturday 2 July 11.00-16.00.

Join us to celebrate 30+ years of the Amiga - meet up with user groups, have a play on the latest hardware and have a chat with Amigans of all shapes, sizes and flavours! AmigaOS4, MorphOS, AROS, Classic Amigas, all side-by-side and not a pointless argument in sight!

The fair is completely free to all visitors and exhibitors and we are always keen to cram in another table of goodness: pm me or email rmbATkesDOTnet if you'd like to be added to the list of exhibitors. I'd especially like to hear from more user groups willing to bring along some kit to show off.

In addition to the Amiga madness, the RiscOS Midlands User Group will be holding their annual summer show as part of Recursion and there will be more retro and vintage systems from the 70s, 80s and 90s than you could possibly play on in just 5 hours!

There will be plenty of new stuff to have a go on too: hundreds of Raspberry Pis and Micro:Bits to play with; virtual reality experiences thanks to Oculus Rift; unmanned drone flight training; electronics and programming workshops and loads, loads more. Robotics and cool technology galore, with local Makerspace and Hackerspace stands.

Recursion is the ideal fair for geeks of all ages and vintages. See the Recursion website for more details Recursion 2016

Previous show reports can be found here and here

Hopefully the "Amiga" section doesn't get shoved back in a dingy unvisited corner like last time...

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue...

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your feedback.

I can't remember whether anybody mentioned it to me on the day last year, but I can't find any emails/pm about the issue.

In 2014 I placed the Amiga section towards the front door and people suggested that visitors moved past too quickly. Last year, I placed the Amiga section between the (very) popular Retro Computer Museum and the RiscOS folk. You can see Nigel's large AROS posters in the image - about a third of the distance from the corner. I don't think the area was particularly dingy - the lighting is fairly consistent across the hall and there was the benefit of a cooling breeze from the rear doors :)

Once I know how many tables I will need for the Amiga people, I am happy to place them at a location of their choosing. If there are 8+ tables needed, a central "island" would become a feasible setup.

It is perhaps worthwhile reminding everyone that Recursion is completely free for all visitors and exhibitors and that we even provide free refreshments for exhibitors (ANT charge 5 per meeting).

I would be delighted to hear from user groups and anyone else who would like to demo their setups, run a stand etc and would of course be very keen to hear further ideas on how I can improve Recursion (it is a one man operation, well, me and a few keen students...)

Richard
