26TH Open Systems Days
Croatian Linux Users’ Conference
FER, Zagreb, Croatia
This talk will showcase a project trying to re-create the groundbreaking DEC PDP-1 from 1959 in FPGA and run the first real computer game, SpaceWar! together with other software in its original form. It will try to explain the possibilities of open and reconfigurable hardware, legacies of vintage systems and hacker culture of the times.
I am a developer and telecommunications engineer with a passion for free and open source software, always trying to find something interesting to disassemble and learn how it works. My interests include both software and hardware hacking, microcontrollers, cryptography, retro computing and tech in general.
