WOzFest 17 Oct/QFest 17 Announcement

WOzFest 17 Oct Header

I’m very happy to announce the date for the next WOzFest: WOzFest 17 Oct will be held on Saturday 17 October 2020, starting at midday Sydney time (UTC+11:00). An easy date to remember! And Steve in Brisbane has confirmed QFest 17 will be held at the same time – double the Apple ][ goodness!

The theme for WOzFest 17 Oct is, as it was for WOzFest SWEET16, “Community” – having supportive communities is important at the best of times, but especially so at the moment, so I’ve decided to extend the theme to cover WOzFest 17 Oct. The camaraderie involved in events like WOzFest certainly help me feel lucky in these trying times. So come and join my community for a few hours, no matter where you are in the world.

As per recent WOzFests, WOzFest 17 Oct will be streamed on Twitch via WOzFest TV for the whole duration. I’ll be aiming to do some productive work to stream, and will have some Skype calls as well.

That said, I’ve not yet organised any Skype calls – but I’m sure I’ll be able to rustle up some Apple ][ enthusiasts from around the world to participate. As usual, we’ll have a permanent connection to our QFest 17 buddies.

For WOzFest 17 Oct I’m continuing to raise funds via Ko-Fi. This allows small (or large!) donations to be made – check out my intro post there for the lowdown, and feel free to drop anything you can, in the can, to help me to run WOzFest moving forward.

I hope to see you there!

P.S. If you happen to be in Sydney and available on 16 October, drop me a line, I’m taking the day off and will be in WOzFest HQ for much of the day, so maybe some will get a little bit of extra retrocomputing done – the more the merrier, right?!
