OSHUG, new UK user group for open source hardware
Osmosoft will be hosting the first meeting of OSHUG, the Open Source Hardware User Group on April 29th. OSHUG's first meeting will include presentations by Professor David May and Alan Wood. May, currently CTO of XMOS Semicoductor, architect of the transputer and author of occam, the concurrent programming language, will be introducing the XCore XS1 microprocessor architecture. Wood will be discussing Amino, a "networked creator tool for hardware and software production" which his company, Folknology, are developing.
OSHUG will initially be based London, but membership of mailing lists is open to all. The group aims to hold regular meetings and is happy to help similar groups wanting to setup elsewhere. Osmosoft is the open source arm of BT and supports a number of open source related events. Full details, including a registration link for the meeting, are available.
