|For the past decade, US-based Amiga event AmiWest has been hosted in Sacramento, California by Sacramento Amiga Computer Club. The event is generally considered as one of the most important annual shows, with keynote speeches from heavy hitters such as ExecSG lead developer Steven Solie and A-EON head honcho Trevor Dickinson. In the past, these presentations have revealed hardware projects such as the (now defunct) Amiga laptop and OS development roadmaps. Thanks to online streaming, Amiga users from all over the planet have been able get a glimpse of what is currently going on behind the scene and what is planned for the future.|
Running for two days starting Saturday October 24th, AmiWest 2020 will feature a new slew of presentations. These include a "full update" about ExecSG - the new AmigaOS kernel currently in development - by Solie and another one by Dickinson. In a blog update on Saturday, October 10th, Dickison announced that his presentation will be pre-recorded because of the ongoing pandemic, and that it will give followers an update on the highly anticipated Amiga A1222 Tabor computer.
