The Vintage Computing Festival Berlin (VCFB) is an event about historic computers and computing technology. In exhibitions, presentations and workshops, participants from all over Germany and beyond present many different aspects of Vintage Computing. 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 and can be used by visitors. Established in 2014, the VCFB has steadily grown and has attracted nearly 3000 visitors in 2019. In 2020, the VCFB took place as an online event.
We are currently evaluating what kind of event we will be able to realise in 2021: an online event improved by last year's experiences or a hybrid event with online and on-site parts. We would like your input on this!
If you want to help with preparations or running the event as a volunteer, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and subscribe to our volunteer mailing list.
It is not yet decided where the VCFB 2021 will take place. At least some part of the event will be available online, though.
