About this event


The CCS was formed almost twenty-five years ago by a group of museum professionals and industry people who were concerned that the history of computing in the UK was in danger of being forgotten.
A whole generation of engineers, programmers and users were retiring from the industry and many important British machines were being lost.

The society was formed to preserve and record this history and has since managed more than a dozen projects such as the rebuild of the Manchester Baby and the restoration of the Harwell Dekatron Computer – now the oldest working digital computer in the world.

Kevin will describe some of the projects and in particular the Harwell machine using images and videos.
