Back2Basics – Resurrecting the Computer Coding of the 1970s/1980s!

As part of the Galway Science and Technology Festival, the Computer and Communications Museum of Ireland and the Insight SFI Research Centre for Data Analytics will host Back2Basics, a coding workshop on BASIC which was the programming language that represented the birth of personal computing and was taught in Irish colleges and schools from the early 1970s up until the early 1990s. Open to all age groups, it will provide a lovely trip down memory lane for the children of yesterday and will be an interesting even fun experience for today’s young coders.There will also be an additional and exciting 21stcentury flavour as participants will further benefit from a virtual tour of a technology heritage museum populated by iconic computers from the 1980s such as the Commodore 64, Commodore Pet and the Apple Macintosh
