10 Print “Hello World!”

Hjemme-dataAnother event in the series of small and cosy domesticated demo-parties held in the Netherlands. This time the 10 Print “Hello World!” party will be shore-side, Scheveningen in the Netherlands.

The aim of this party is to conversate, create and release a little production using cross-dev only. This will be at a beginners level (as my skills aren’t up to par the other high definition party releases). So get out portable (this time not the SX-64) and start jamming that 6510 and 680×0 code.

Date: 2014 -summertime (t.b.d.)

Participants:

  1. Berry
  2. Ikilledher
  3. DdW
  4. Fonz

Due to safety restrictions we have to restrict this meeting to 6 sceners using cross-dev machines (laptops, notebooks a.k.a. devbook) only, but some real hardware (C64, SX64, C128, Amiga 1200/030 and Amiga 4000/040) will be available for testing the releases.

Januari 2013 – Commodore SX-64 party @ Starbucks…

The Commodore SX-64 was announced in January 1983 and released a year later and sadly enough discontinued in 1986. So January would be a perfect opportunity to celebrate however we can schedule parties al year long… or even untill 2016, which is a little far fetched. So when January is not the best of the year, wintertime, feel free to schedule another time 😉 .

Let’s keep up with the Commodore especially on the anniversary of the executive, luggable edition of the best computer ever. So therefor i would like to propose a semi-virtual meeting, to keep our eco-footprint as low a possible, by meeting up with some friends and their SX64 in a local cafe. Click here to find your local coffee brewer and join the #SX64party flashmob.

Why shouldn’t we rejoice the 30th anniversary of the good old Commodore SX-64 at a place where the corporate suits and students show off their latest gazillon-megahertz lapware? Just bring your SX-64 along and enjoy a coffee, first round is on me, when i am physically at the venue.

What can you nowadays do with your SX-64? At least everything you need is in the box. Take some pleasure of enjoying demos, play a game with your friends or ever do some serious accounting with your friends. And if our are really eager Twittering on the Commodore (SX-)64 is still an option. So you don’t have to let go on your daily habits 🙂

So if you like this idea, please sign up and drag your gear to your local, or not so nearby coffee-club and have some fun! First coffee is on me, when i am also in the vicinity.
