We are a user group set up to support users of RISC OS computers including VirtualRiscPC and RPCEmu in the South West of England, but users of other operating systems such as GNU/Linux and Mac OS are welcome to come along. We also support other ARM devices such as the Raspberry Pi. You may even get to play on an Arduino or two. To the left are some photos of our members past and present.
