About the event
The Homebrew Computer Club (formed on 5 March 1975) was where Apple's Steve Jobs and Microsoft's Bill Gates first met! Some of the most innovative minds in coding, engineering and design attended those monthly events. What they created we still use today.
In homage to that incredible gathering, the Fourth Portal has a more modest event, bringing together those interested in computers in all their forms, from coding to 8-bit sound to circuit boards to AI and machine learning - in fact, anything computing.
We will build upon our first meeting and see where it takes us. Attendees are welcome to bring along kit they can carry or get in touch if there is something bigger to display.
Gravesend resident and computer collector, Mark Gladwell will bring three more of his computers to the August meetup.
