Come join us March 21st and March 22nd in Seattle at VCF PNW 2020! Look forward to:

  • 24 Exhibits featuring big-iron, classic 8 bitters, replicas, and even new machines!
  • 6 Presentations including Bil Herd and Joe Decuir, IEEE Fellow!
  • Take part in our very first Vintage Computer Typing Contest! Win not-so-valuable prizes!
  • Buy (or sell) treasure in the consignment area!
  • Enjoy our host, the world-renowned Living Computers:Museum+Labs!
This year at VCF PNW we will be celebrating and exploring computing history with twenty-four exhibits and six presentations spread over two days. VCF exhibits are interactive; we want you to experience them, not just gaze upon them. Our host, Living Computers:Museum+Labs, provides an excellent backdrop for the event.

Exhibits are brought to you by enthusiasts from the United States, Canada and Australia. Exhibits include big-iron, homebrew machines, workstations, replicas, modern enhancements, classic machines and even new machines inspired by the classics. Come feel the heat of the VAX cluster, play Doom on a Unix workstation, experience a BBS, learn how to repair a PDP-8, jam on an early software based synthesizer setup, see random numbers generated by LAVA® lamps, and more!

Our speakers and topics this year include Bil Herd (Commodore history), Dr. Zbigniew Stachniak (MCM/70 emulation), Darius Kazemi (Internet RFCs), Jon Philpott (ArcAS: an arcade action programming game), Scott Swazey (PDP-11/45 and the Star Wars Death Star graphics sequences), and Joe Decuir (Amiga history).

The event is free with paid museum admission. For more details head over to http://vcfed.org/vcf-pnw/. We hope to see you there!

In case you had not heard by now, this has been cancelled due to concerns over COVID-19 (coronavirus).
