I went yesterday to bitsevent. The main theme was retrogames but there was also a space for tech.
That was just for chatting and getting up to date on their projects.
I enjoyed the retro area. Meeting again with my Commodore 64 was just reminding me my teens, lots of time spent typing Basic code from magazines, and how I later switched to Assembler.
That was an amazing experience. The first time I filled a screen with ‘A’ it was stuning. I couldn’t tell how fast it was, used to Basic.
It’s not exactly like mine, I remember keys on darker grey.
Another interesting encounter was the ZX80 and the ZX81 from Sinclair.
I bought a couple of geek t-shirts and left the space because I am not into gaming anymore.
