VCF East XII: T-minus 11 days! Tickets available online, exhibits almost full, Friday tech classes are scheduled

Vintage Computer Festival East XII happens in less than two weeks! Tickets are now available online. We’ve kept an eye on ticket trends this year and there are people attending from all over — Europe, Canada, the west coast, the south, midwest, and up/down the eastern seaboard. If you’re attending the show then we suggest acting soon, that way you won’t have to wait long at the door.

The exhibit hall is full. There will be more than 40 exhibits this year, as we continue break the previous year’s record every time. There are also new things to see in our year-round Vintage Computer Federation museum exhibits which reside in the next building over from both of the VCF East exhibit halls.

We reminded you in the last newsletter that our keynote speakers are Dr. Tom Perera (Enigma machine expert), Dr. Bjarne Stroustrup (inventor of C++), and Bill Degnan (panel discussion on 40 years of appliance computing). And don’t forget the awesome Friday technical class schedule! There will be 12 standard classes, a documentary film screening, and a replica creation workshop.

Check out the complete VCF East XII schedule (subject to change) and visit the event homepage for the rest of the details.
