Dates Announced for AmiWest 2014

As is customary at AmiWest, the dates for the coming year were announced at the conclusion of the show.  October 23-24, 2014  will be the third AmiWest Programming Seminar, and October 24-26, 2014 will be the AmiWest show dates.  AmiWest 2014 will be the 17th AmiWest show.


Our venue remains the same at the Holiday Inn Express, 2224 Auburn Blvd., Sacramento, CA.  This venue was our partner in a great AmiWest 2013 and we have no doubt that they will also be our "get it done" partner in 2014 as well. 


AmiWest 2013 Show Sponsors and Exhibitors

Many thanks to our AmiWest 2013 sponsors and exhibitors!

Every year, many people put in countless hours of volunteer time
to make AmiWest happen. Without these people, this show would
never happen. And because of them, it happens every year. Here
are the groups of people that make AmiWest 2013 a reality. Thank
you one and all!


Twas the Night before Programming. . .

The second AmiWest Programming Seminar begins tomorrow,
16, 2013 at 5 PM. Led by AmigaOS Developer Team Lead Steven
Solie, the seminar promises to advance the skills of Amiga

Steve has an amazing grasp of Amiga programming, so much so
he has re-written the "C" language to make it more Amiga
efficient. Along with presenters Lyle Hazelwood and Paul
we hope that the event will be productive and encouraging for
all participants.
