The main mission of the Vintage Computer Festival is to promote the preservation of “obsolete” computers by offering attendees a chance to experience the technologies, people and stories that embody the remarkable tale of the computer revolution.We will educate and entertain! The VCFSE is hosted and produced by the Computer Museum of America and the Atlanta Historical Computing Society, and sponsored online by VintageTech.

An Analog Computer Primer - a tutorial paper
At our August 18th (2pm) meeting, Brian Stuart will present:
Computing Without Bits!
Before the PDP-1, before the UNIVAC, before the ENIAC, there were differential analyzers. These analog computers solve differential equations without bits or bytes. This time, we will look at how electronic analog computers work and how they are used. Then we will see a real analog computer in action, integrated with a modern digital computer.
Brian will also be bringing the 6809 single board computer, which he just designed and built!
Next, David Greelish will give us a short slide show of highlights from the KansasFest event he just attended.
It’s all happening at the Atlanta Historical Computer Society meeting on Saturday, August 18th at 2pm, here:
