San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Presentation and demonstration on refurbishing two 1970 Teletype Model 33 Data Terminals, and using then via a Linux box, with Perl, Bash and everything else, to receive and send email via the Internet, to print the news (Drudge), the weather (National Weather Service), and Wikipedia information. Used C++, Assembly, Perl, Mojolicious, CPAN, and Perl Source Filtering to get everything to work. Will demonstrate custom designed PCB hardware using embedded micro-controllers to bridge 50 years of computer technology. Everything used was Open Source, including the PCB design software, KiCad. After the presentation, there will be 30 minutes for Q and A, along with some hands on use of these amazing electro-mechanical wonders of yesteryear, the original Input / Output devices for early mini computers of the 1970's.
