KansasFest is here, and our packed schedule is online:
There is no need to print the schedule since we'll provide you a hard copy. The electronic versions will always have the latest updates.
The Raspberry Pi is a popular, inexpensive single board computer. What does this have to do with the Apple II? Who would be crazy enough to interface a Raspberry Pi with an Apple II? Ivan Drucker, David Schmenk, and Charles Mangin have done just that. Ivan turned his Raspberry Pi into an AppleTalk file server and a portable Apple II emulator. David upgraded his Apple IIc to a IIgs using a Raspberry Pi. Charles connected his Apple keyboards to a Raspberry Pi. Don't miss the recent Juiced.GS article on this topic.
KansasFest starts in only 17 days. Ivan will be there to show us how to use the Raspberry Pi with the Apple II. He'll present three sessions: "So what is the Raspberry Pi, anyway?", "A2SERVER Redux: This Time, with Pi", and "Apple II in the Cloud".
KansasFest registration will close in 10 days on July 10. What are you waiting for? Do you really want to be home, alone, impatiently refreshing this website hoping for a tidbit of the awesomeness happening in Kansas City? Or, would you rather be at KansasFest, among your kind who share your passion for the Apple II? Do you really want to miss the keynote from Randy Wigginton, part of the brainpower behind DOS and the Disk ][?
There's only one thing better than KansasFest: KansasFest with a one year Juiced.GS subscription included. Juiced.GS is the longest running Apple II print publication and is chock full of news, reviews, interviews, and tutorials. The most recent issue even offers a behind-the-scenes view of KansasFest. You'll have something to tide you over while waiting for KansasFest 2014. Register for KansasFest between July 1 and July 10, mention Juiced.GS on the registration form, and the subscription is yours. You may use your subscription yourself or gift it to a friend.
Daniel Kruszyna and Melissa Barron will teach attendees how to cut, fold, and glue their own 5.25" floppy sleeves. The session will start with a short instructional section and then continue with a workshop. They will provide tools for attendees to share and some basic card stock and other materials. It's not necessary to bring anything to participate; however, attendees are encouraged to bring special paper or decorating supplies such as markers, colored pencils, magazine pages, etc., to create their own unique style.
Missed early-bird registration? Hope is not lost. Until July 10, you may still register at the "regular" rates.
