-Our mission is to encourage the preservation of obsolete computer hard- and software of years past, to promote interest in researching and documenting the history of the computer age ... and to have fun playing with old iron. The Vintage Computer Festival is not only a fixed entry in the Silicon Valley timetable, but it has also become a European event, celebrating our computer heritage. Let us return to those thrilling days of yesteryear, when geeks were geeks and floppies were really floppy. ​ 
-\\ 
-Play hands-on with some of the most important computer systems from the 50s down through the 90s and see the evolution of computing. Play the earliest video games on Old Iron and vintage arcade machines, try operating a Blinkenlights front panel and relive the home computer boom of the Eighties. Presentation sessions will complement the exhibits, explaining the stories of machines both famous and long forgotten.
