DEC Legacy Event, April 17th & 18th 2010, Windermere, UK

I am organising a DEC Legacy Event on the 17th & 18th April 2010 in Windermere, UK.

The event's purpose is to bring together people with an interest in the company Digital Equipment Corporation and their legacy of hardware, software and ethos. I am hoping to attract people willing to exhibit their DEC computer hardware and software at the event. There will be tables setup around the main hall on which equipment can be presented.

Whilst the format for the event is still fluid, I envisage that it will involve a mixture of the following:

  • Walkabout sessions giving the opportunity to talk to owners of DEC hardware and to 'have a play'
  • Demonstrations of equipment or software by their owners (languages, applications, games etc)
  • Sit down presentations about specific topics of interest
  • A programming competition (if there is enough interest)
  • Buy & sell hardware, software, relevant items
  • Raffle (with suitably themed items) on behalf of the National Museum of Computing
