VCFe 20.0 was a BLAST. I would like to thank all who helped to make VCFe the huge success it is. VCFe is created and carried by its protagonists, a very unique group.

Next year, the 21th anual VCFe will be held on May 1/2/3 2020.

Now there's an incredible, new way to experiance the VCFe, or more exact, all the hurdles to set it up, the VCFe game: VCFE - A Weekend among Nerds. The game has been made possible by usage of state of the art game drivers and virtual reality rechnology: unlimited colours and unbeatable sounds projedted directly into the gamers brain by intense use of text (some German required).
The Vintage Computing Year will continue:

The 20th annual European Vintage Computer Festival on April 27th and 28th 2019 awaits you!

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.


Special Focus Every year the VCFe is themed on a special focus. This year's focus is:
Pixelritter - Programming at the Limit

Today software development is highly abstract and portable founded on endless layers of encapsulation and translation. But there was a time when everything, foremost games, had to be fine tuned at the lowest possible level. Where hardware dictated programm logic..

The game has been made possible by usage of state of the art game drivers and virtual reality rechnology: unlimited colours and unbeatable sounds projedted directly into the gamers brain by intense use of text (some German required).

Exhibition

Dozens of old (but still not obsolete) computers to be viewed and touched. No barrier between you and your dreams... (It may be a good idea to ask the exhibitor before dismantling his system :)

Speeches

A series of speeches will be given to describe some systems in detail, discuss classic developments from today's perspective or other topics of interest to collectors.

Flea Market

No system will be ever completely debugged, so we are offering space in the hall to vendors to sell and trade historic gear. Anything is allowed - as long as the item is computer related and more than 10 years old.

Peoples Choice Award and Give Away

All visitors are called to vote for their favorite piece of history and unlike a constitutional poll, you may even win great stuff.
