Recursion Computer Fair: Sat 1 July Stratford-upon-Avon
Date 21-May-2017 11:49:07
|Now in its 4th year, the Recursion Computer Fair is back and will take place at King Edward VI School, Stratford-upon-Avon on Saturday 1 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. Exhibitors get free on-site parking for the day and free refreshments all day.
In addition to the Amiga madness, the RISC OS 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! Over 50+ systems to play with are currently booked.
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, HTC Vive and PSVR; unmanned drone flight training; electronics and programming workshops and loads, loads more. Robotics and cool technology galore, with local Makerspace and Hackerspace stands. Hackathon competition for 10-18 years olds. Oh and an indoor planetarium from the NSA.
Recursion is the ideal fair for geeks of all ages and vintages - an ideal day out. See the Recursion website (run by KES students) for more details: Recursion 2017
