This is an old revision of the document!
Welcome on the wiki of the VCFB 2020, which will take place on Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 11th of October 2020 as a live event. This year, participants from all over Germany and other countries will present various aspects of 'Vintage Computing' in virtual exhibitions, talks and workshops. Items exhibited include everything from typical retro-computers to historical operating systems, programming languages, network technology, calculators and calculating machines. Most of the exhibited artifacts are in working condition. Owing to the virtual nature of this year's VCFB it is also possible to exhibit devices which, due to their size and fragility, could not be transported to another physical location.
This year, all exhibitions, talks and workshops will use video conference rooms of our BigBlueButton system. No programs have to be installed, only a web browser on a PC, tablet or smartphone is required to take part as an exhibitor or guest. Like in previous years, the talks will be streamed and will be available as recordings afterwards. After every talk, the presenters will be available in their video conference rooms for Q&A sessions. Exhibits will be shown on this Wiki as well as in individual BigBlueButton rooms where their owners can demonstrate their exhibit in more detail and chat with their visitors.
