Description :

Join us for an fantastic talk on some of Commodore's best years.

PLEASE NOTE This talk is held at the museum, with Bil connecting via the Web.

Join us as Bil Herd reminisces about the late days of the 8 bit revolution. Bil discusses how Commodore once had the most popular home computer, the Commodore C64, to their unfortunate demise.

Bil Herd is a computer engineer who created several designs for 8-bit home computers while working for Commodore Business Machines in the early to mid-1980s. After first acting as the principal engineer on the Commodore Plus/4, C16/116, C264, and C364 machines, Herd designed the significantly more successful Commodore 128, a dual-CPU, triple-OS and compatible successor to the Commodore 64. Prior to the C128, Herd had developed the initial architecture of the Commodore LCD computer, which was not released.

The talk will begin at 7pm BST and last around 90 minutes, with the opportunity to ask questions afterwards.
