HELLO RETRO COMPUTING FANS:
If you’d be interested in attending the World of Commodore 2022 computer show either in-person or virtually on Saturday December 3 and Sunday December 4, please visit this webpage: https://www.tpug.ca/world-of-commodore/world-of-commodore-2022/
The World of Commodore show is organized by TPUG (Toronto Pet Users Group), who took over operation of the show from Commodore after Commodore’s bankruptcy in the mid-1990’s. TPUG was founded in 1979, and is the longest continually-operating Commodore users group in the world! It was also the users group that Commodore expert Jim Butterfield belonged to until his passing in 2007.
Scheduled speakers at this year’s show include former Commodore UK managing director David Pleasance, creator of the new C64 OS - Greg Nacu, and fantastic YouTuber Amiga Bill !
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Commodore 64 - the best-selling computer model of all time, so come and celebrate this amazing milestone with us.
TPUG plans to stream the show live on YouTube, which you can watch for free. However, if you support TPUG by paying an entry fee as a virtual visitor, you will have the opportunity to join the Zoom session live and ask questions of the guest speakers!
If you have any questions after visiting the above webpage, please feel free to stop by the TPUG Discord server at https://discord.gg/V5DHgR3
(Just to note, 10:00 in Toronto at that time of year is 15:00 UTC.)
