Exhibit sign-up opens for VCF East/VCF West

We opened exhibitor registration for VCF East and VCF West. This year we’re doing it through Google Forms. Click here to sign up for a VCF East exhibit or click here to sign up for a VCF West exhibit. Exhibit tables for both events will sell out, so don’t procrastinate! If you have any questions then contact Evan Koblentz (VCF East: evan@vcfed.org) or Erik Klein (VCF West: erik@vcfed.org).

Ken Thompson to speak VCF East

Ken Thompson, who invented the UNIX operating system with Dennis Ritchie at Bell Labs in the 1960s and 1970s, will be a star at Vintage Computer Festival East this year! It’s the 50th anniversary of when their work began. Thompson also wrote the programming language B, which preceded Ritchie’s world-changing language C. His accomplishments on these and other important works in computer science must be acknowledged. Ken will be interviewed on stage on Saturday morning, May 4, by Bell Labs’ Brian Kernighan of K&R fame. Brian himself spoke at VCF East in 2015.

PS: Not exhibiting at the event but interested in unloading some tonnage? We are hosting a consignment area again!  The consignment area is open to everybody; now is a good time to start cleaning and testing things that you might want to sell.
