The first ever Vintage Computer Festival Pacific Northwest (VCF PNW) starts Saturday February 10th. Come join us for a weekend filled with vintage computers, presentations, and some of the people who make up the community. The show is being held at Living Computers: Museum+Labs in Seattle, Washington. The museum is a great attraction by itself but on this weekend you can enjoy both the museum and the show for the same price of admission.
We have 20 exhibits ranging from original “old iron” to modern enhancements for old systems. Exhibits are interactive and the exhibitors will be happy to spend time showing you their projects and talking to you. (See VCF PNW 2018 Exhibitors for the current list.)
Our six presenters will cover topics from the history (and future) of microprocessors to recent experiences while writing an emulator for a classic machine. Don’t miss the live demonstration of the LC:M+L time-sharing systems or the panel discussion on restoration techniques used on DEC and HP systems. (See VCF PNW 2018 Presenters for the full list.)
Are you looking to sell some of your vintage computing collection? Or are you interested in acquiring somebody else’s treasure? If so, VCF PNW 2018 will have a consignment area to help connect buyers and sellers of vintage computing equipment. Click here for details.
