Retro Computing


Saturday February 22, 2020: 1:00pm to 3:00pm


Downtown Library: Secret Lab, Downtown Library: Training Center


Program like it's 1980! You don't need a DeLorean to travel back in time. Instead, spend a couple of hours learning how to program in the most popular programming language of the 80s: BASIC! We'll start at the beginning by learning how to operate an 8-bit computer and culminate in making a small game. You'll leave with a greater understanding of our technological heritage along with tools and resources to write your own 8-bit programs.

Presenter James Kruth is a retro computing enthusiast and amateur computer historian with over 25 years of coding experience. He's committed to making programming fun and accessible for everyone.

Basic typing skills are recommending for this workshop.  No prior programming experience is required.
