Programming in the 1960s: A Personal History

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This talk is for those who would like to visit the computer museum but haven't yet had the time. I was hired as a programmer in 1964, and I’ll tell some stories about what life was like then for programmers. If you attend, you will learn
  • why it wasn't my fault
  • why the difference in size between an IBM 360/67 and a CDC 6600 mattered
  • what the IBM repairman did to warrant being treated as a terrorist
  • why hairstyles were much shorter in the ’70s than in the ’60s
