The AmiWest committee thanks all the vendors for making AmiWest possible and for making it free admission for attendees for Amiwest 2013.

AmiWest 2014 will be, Sat. Oct. 25th Show & Banquet and Sunday Oct. 26th the Show continues for the 17thyear.

Thursday, Friday, (October 23,24) has been added to the AmiWest 2014 schedule to continue with Amiga programming.

Hyperion developer team lead Steven Solie and his team will instruct at the AmigaOS Programming Seminar in conjunction with AmiWest 2013. More info on the seminars is located at amiwest.net/aosps . Watch this page for a link to sign up for the event and get more complete information about it.

The goal of the event, broadly speaking, is to enable Amiga users to become Amiga developers. This is needed for several reasons:

Although many people are contributing AmigaOS software at os4depot.net, many more are needed to write, test and debug new apps that take advantage of the unique capabilities of AmigaOS. A few of these capabilities that are visible to the user are:

a) The ability to easily define any number of screens with different color depths and sizes, only limited by available RAM, and drag these windows up and down as desired.

b) True multi-tasking that allows the user access to multiple windows on the same desktop, enabling the user and developer to use program windows simultaneously and see results concurrently. One use of this ability is editing websites in much less time using generic, multi-purpose tools.

2) Starting a conversation between developers that will continue after the event is completed. This conversation among creative people can lead to dynamically powerfu synergies that are as yet unforeseen.

3) You will be able to spend 3 days with major Amiga software developers, including Steve Solie, with access to their concepts and abilities.

These reasons alone are enough to motivate me to attend. And I'm sure that you will have your own reasons. A prerequisite to attend is having a grasp of the "C" programming language; so I'm learning "C" to be able to be in attendance. My tutorial of choice is located online cprogramming.com .
