Lot’s of folks stopped by between sessions and during lunch. It was a pleasure to share my collection of late 70s to early 80s computers from the dawn of the personal computer era. I had never seen the collection displayed at the same time. It was a pretty good sized room, I was able to display about 75% of my collection.

This is the view as you walk into the room.

It was getting right down to the wire if we would be able to get one more room at Desert Code Camp for the RetroWagon collection, but CGCC came through. Here are a few tweets the night before and day of the code camp.

 

 

 

And a few more angles on the tables and walls. There is a Teletype model 33 ASR connected to an Altair 8800b.
