Interested in the history of technology? Join the celebration of two significant milestones in the history of computing at Manchester on 21 June, including a demonstration of a replica of the Manchester 'Baby'!
The IEEE are awarding two Milestones for the “Manchester University Baby Computer and its Derivatives, 1948-1951” and the “Atlas Computer and the Invention of Virtual Memory 1957-1962”.
Two events will celebrate these awards on the 21st June 2022, the 74th anniversary of the first program run by the Manchester Baby computer. Both events are free.
The afternoon event will take place in the Kilburn Building at the University of Manchester but will also be live-streamed for those unable to attend in person. During the morning the replica Baby computer will be demonstrated at the Science and Industry Museum, Manchester, by a team of volunteers. There will also be a display of material from the Ferranti archives. Further information about both events is available on the registration website.
The morning and afternoon events are separate and you can register for either or both of them. Space is limited, so all attendees need to register in advance.
The Eventbrite link to register for either session is given below.
