Vintage Computer Festival East this weekend #VCF #VintageComputing #RetroComputing @Hackaday
This weekend the InfoAge Science and History Museum in Wall, New Jersey will host the Vintage Computer Festival East — the annual can’t-miss event for anyone who has even a passing interest in vintage computers.
VCF East 2022 will be a hybrid show (in-person and streaming online)!
THEMES FOR THIS YEAR: 1) Women in Computing, 2) Computers for the masses
DATES: April 22, 23, 24
WHERE: InfoAge Science and History Museums, 2201 Marconi Road, Wall, NJ 07719
Ticket holders will have access to a program of workshops, talks, and exhibits that center around the dual themes of “Women in Computing” and “Computers for the Masses”, plus a consignment and vendor area that almost guarantees you’ll be going home a little poorer than when you got there.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
