R-Comp preshow update

Posted by Mark Stephens on 15:09, 22/10/2021 |
 
R-CompInfo will have a reduced presence at next week's London show. Andrew and Steph will (after much heart-searching) not be there as they are both shielding and in the 'at risk' category (seems a very sensible decision to us).

There is no longer a meeting on Monday 18th October, as had previously been advertised. So you have the night off if you were planning to attend.
 
Maybe a chance to plan your trip to the London Show on Saturday 30th October...

Rougol London Shows returns this month

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:30, 11/10/2021 |
 
The long-running London Show is back in person after a couple of years being online only. It is running 11am - 5pm and tickets remain a pre-Covid fiver on the door (free to under 16s).

The Show takes place on Saturday 30th October (just over 2 weeks away) and is back to its usual venue of St. Giles Hotel, Feltham. If you are thinking of making this a weekend away, Rougol have also sorted out a discount code (ROUGOL) to stay at the hotel.

CodeCraft #4 voting open

Posted by Jeffrey Lee on 20:00, 7/10/2021 | , , ,
 
The submission period for the CodeCraft #4 demo coding competition has now closed, which means now comes the part that every one can get involved with: Voting!

9 entries were received in total, but because voting is on a per-category basis, only 7 of the entries are eligible for voting (the other two are in categories that only received one entry). There are five entries in the 256 byte intro category, and two entries in the 1KB intro category.

Download links and YouTube videos of all the applicable demos are available here on pout.net, and information about the voting process (and an all-in-one download archive for the submissions) is available here. At the time of writing, there is an issue which is preventing the CodeCraft website from being updated with this information.

The deadline for voting is Sunday the 17th of October.
