We will be posting some suggestions for making this easier for those coming from a distance.

So make your plans now to attend AmiWest 2020! New features are already in the works to make AmiWest 2020 even better for all who attend.

Watch these blog posts for news as it happens. Our blogger has already committed to making AmiWest more visible to our blog readers. We look forward to his efforts throughout the remainder of 2019 and all of 2020.

25. October 24, 2019 Mike Battilana to attend AmiWest 2019!

Announcements of the acquisition are on the way.

We have been in communication with Mike Battilana about the new acquisition. He will talk at AmiWest 2019 about the Amiga acquisition and plans for the future to invite a public discussion about it. He is traveling to Amiga events to stay in touch and make sure he can talk with everyone about this change.

The acquisition has already taken place, but as he will explain there are many details that remain to be worked on. We look forward to these explanations and the benefit to the Amiga community.

So remember: AmiWest 2019 and associated events are in progress October 23-27, 2019 at the Holiday Inn Express, 2224 Auburn Blvd., Sacramento, CA. See our website at amiwest.net for the latest information and watch this blog for breaking news about the show. See you in October!

Exec SG updates CORRECTION!

The Exec SG kernal is under development! CORRECTION! What we failed to discover was the true owner of the Exec SG kernal. Instead of being "the exclusive property of A-EON Technologies Ltd.," the Exec SG kernal is actually the personal property of Trevor Dickinson, co-founder of A-EON Technologies Ltd..

The rest of the post is accurate and compelling. What we did find out was that there are many readers of this blog. Thanks for your time and attention.

So remember: AmiWest 2019 and associated events is currently in progress October 23-27, 2019 at the Holiday Inn Express, 2224 Auburn Blvd., Sacramento, CA. We hope to see you soon!

23. October 21, 2019 Exec SG updates are on the way!

Exec SG is being updated and tested now!

The Exec SG kernal is under development! Now the exclusive property of A-EON Technologies Ltd., the Exec SG kernal is being extended and tested by a team of well-qualified developers.

Led by Exec SG Team Lead Steven Solie, the new kernal adds support for many features AmigaOS doesn't have. Among these are mutli-core support, GART implementation, faster speed, 64-bit support, and extending the RAM limit beyond 2 GB to 4 GB and beyond.

Even with all these advantages, the Exec SG kernal retains 100% compatibility compared to the former kernal version. This is true because these are extensions to the existing kernal incorporating the original work of Carl Sassenrath and the AmigaOS team in 1985 as well as the work of others since then.

So more Amiga magic is in store. What will it run on? Be sure you have an OS4.x machine to take advantage of these new features. Come to AmiWest to find out about when the next new machine will be introduced.

So remember: AmiWest 2019 and associated events will be October 23-27, 2019 at the Holiday Inn Express, 2224 Auburn Blvd., Sacramento, CA. Make your plans to attend now. If you've attended before, bring one other person who is new to the show. If this will be your first time, welcome to the show!

21. October 8, 2019 AmiWest DevCon gathering 2 weeks from today!

The eighth annual AmigaOS DevCon at AmiWest starts October 23rd!

In just two weeks, DevCon participants will begin arriving in Sacramento. This event is unique in the Amiga world, inviting all who would be Amiga programmers as well as seasoned developers to the AmigaOS DevCon.

Led by Steven Solie and other instructors, the DevCon is always a productive time for sharing development ideas as well as meeting others of like mind in Amigadom. Online conversations are great, but nothing beats time in-person getting to know other Amiga programmers.

We have a good group registered this year. We want to thank all who are participating. You are the reason for the meeting. See this link for the latest prep and syllabus information for the DevCon.

We also want to thank AmiWest Silver Sponsor Amiga On The Lake for sponsoring the cost of the DevCon. This means that Amiga programmers can meet and talk without a registration fee for the first time at the AmigaOS DevCon at AmiWest.

So remember: AmiWest 2019 and associated events will be October 23-27, 2019 at the Holiday Inn Express, 2224 Auburn Blvd., Sacramento, CA. Make your plans to attend now.

A-EON Technologies, Ltd. is coming as Gold Sponsor!

A-EON Technologies, AmiWest 2019 Gold Sponsor, is exhibiting at AmiWest 2019! Represented by Trevor Dickinson, A-EON has been busily developing new AmigaOS hardware over the last 10 years. The AmigaONE X1000 and the AmigaONE X5000 have been developed and sold during this past decade.

New software projects have also been supported by A-EON. Developers are actually being employed to advance the "under the hood" development of AmigaOS and the resulting SDK, including (among others) implementation of OpenGL and Radeon HD graphics card drivers.

And more is in the works! We're sure that Trevor will have some surprises for us at AmiWest this year just like he has in years past. We're really excited about what he's bringing, whatever that may be.

And you'll get a chance to talk to Trevor in person! Come to the show and speak with him directly. He's really excited about Amiga and communicates that in his conversation and demeanor.

17. October 2, 2019 AmiWest Games Competition!

The first ever AmiWest Games Competition is this year.

Games really show off the capabilities of the Amiga platform. That was especially true back in the day when color, stereo sound and fast graphics were absent from most computer platforms that an average person could purchase.

Indeed, Electronic Arts pledged their support to the Amiga platform in 1985 by developing and marketing games that took full advantage of those abilities. They even published a demo disk called "Kaleidoscope" that featured screen shots of several of those titles.

This year, SACC is sponsoring an Amiga games competition at AmiWest 2019. SACC Vice President Jerry Gray invites gamers: "We will be hosting a game competition at AmiWest 2019 featuring a different game / competition on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The featured games are Trap Runner, River Raid Reloaded, and Mod Surfer ( but not necessarily in that order!) Each game is free to download and playable on any PAL based Amiga or emulator. Download a copy and brush up on your gaming skills!"

Be sure to check at the SACC table for the rest of the details when you arrive at AmiWest 2019. We're looking forward to having fun on our classic Amigas playing these games!

So remember: AmiWest 2019 and associated events will be October 23-27, 2019 at the Holiday Inn Express, 2224 Auburn Blvd., Sacramento, CA. Make your plans to attend now.

Infocessories to bring classic Amiga hardware for sale!

Amiga 1000's will be at AmiWest 2019! That's right. If you don't have one, you can get one at AmiWest. These are units that are tested working and include a keyboard and mouse, along with Kickstart and Workbench disks to get you going.

The model 1000 initiated the Amiga era in 1985. That creative explosion has formed the Amiga community for the last 34 years. We continue to celebrate that event as we employ Amiga today.

Now you can own the model 1000 legend.The infocessories people will be offering these units for sale along with other classic Amiga hardware to enhance your classic setup. For instance, if you need a keyboard or mouse for your A1000, we will have them for sale at AmiWest. Other hardware will also be present.

Come by the infocessories table! We will also have an updated REBOL distro available. REBOL is the Relative Expression-based Object Language created by Carl Sassenrath, the original AmigaOS architect. This distro runs on most Amiga models and is easy to learn and use. This blog is created using REBOL.

Please use the AmiWest reservations link to reserve your hotel room. In recent years some attendees have attempted to book AmiWest rooms as part of a larger prepaid reservation or from an external website. This will result in paying more for your AmiWest rooms.

The AmiWest rate is about half of the usual rate for these rooms. The hotel gives only one discount per reservation. These discounts do not combine. If you prepay and/or use an external site to reserve, the AmiWest discount will not be available. Use this link. to get the AmiWest discount for the dates of the show.
