Are the post-KansasFest blues troubling you? Did you miss KansasFest? Don’t worry; go to Australia for the southern hemisphere’s greatest Apple II gathering. Andrew Roughan, one of the event’s organizers, writes:
The next Australian retro computing gathering, Oz KFest, will be happening in Melbourne, Australia, April 17-19, 2015. Come join us downunder for a few of days of retro inspiration, Aussie ingenuity and camaraderie!
The goal of the event is to provide a user group style environment to exchange ideas and discuss new developments in retro computing hardware, software, preservation, emulation and other related topics.
There will be a few attendees of past KansasFests and Oz KFests and we hope to imbibe the spirit of these events into Oz KFest once again.
The presentations during the weekend will come from the participants and therefore an invitation is extended for session proposals to be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have an idea for a session that you’d like to present, please let us know so we can allocate a time slot for you. If you would like to learn something, let us know what that is and we will try to find a presenter for that topic.
Registration for the event is not yet open. However, now is the time to block out the dates in your calendar, arrange how to get there and where you’ll stay. If you need help, let us know how we can help.
Reminder that the ‘Downunder Chat’ happens every Friday night from 9pm Australian EST in irc.a2central.com #a2.chat
Oz KFest (in Australia) is separate from KansasFest (in Kansas City) and has different organizers. You’re seeing this announcement on the KansasFest website because both of our groups share an interest in the Apple II.
