At FOSDEM 2018, there will be a talk on "Game development for the
ColecoVision and Sega 8-bit systems".
The talk will be 2018-02-04 15:50 in room AW1.121 at the Université libre de Bruxelles.

Naturally, part of the talk will be about SDCC and its z80 backend, as well as about the libcv/libcvu libraries. The libraries were originally written for the ColecoVision, but evolved into something that now allow easy development of games portable between the ColecoVision and the Sega 8-bit systems. The talk is just 30 minutes so it will have to be more of an overview than an in-depth talk.I will also be around for discussions during that weekend.

More details on the talk can be found at:
