October 10th and 11th, 2020

The Vintage Computing Festival Berlin (VCFB) is an event about historic computers and computing technology. This year the participants from all over Germany and beyond present many different aspects of Vintage Computing in virtual exhibitions, presentations and workshops. In addition to retro computers, also historical operating systems, programming languages, network technology as well as pocket and mechanic calculators will be shown. Most of the exhibited devices are in working condition. This time the virtual VCFB even makes it possible to show exhibits that normally can't be brought because of their size or fragility.

The VCFB 2020 is going to take place in a wiki and a video conference system. The presentations will be streamed as usual. After each presentation the presenters will be available for a Q&A session in individual video conference rooms. The exhibitions will be presented in the wiki, the exhibits are shown in more detail in video conference rooms in which the audience can interact with the exhibitors.

Admission is free! To visit the event only a webbrowser is required, no software needs to be installed.
