Committees are voluntary groups, formed by members in order to achieve certain goals.
To join this committee, contact the committee chairperson. See Rules and Policies#Committees for more information.
The VCC Committee (formally Vintage Computer Committee) strives to provide a STEM pilot program for learning hands on about the whole computer from hardware to software and networking. Thus passing on the knowledge and history of computing to the newest generation of "hackers', makers, and generally anyone interested in computers and the internet before the "grey beards" knowledge becomes completely lost to us all.
In achieving this goal the VCC Committee oversees the Interactive Computer Museum, offers programming and networking courses, and works with the Afterschool alliance, Home U.S. Department of Education, and Texas Board of Education to provide an official STEM pilot program at the Dallas Makerspace.
The VCC Committee also works with Archive.org, Jason Scott, Vintage Computer Federation, and Computer History Museum to help with digital archiving of historical software, rare industry materials (ie schematics, internal manual, etc.), commercial literature, and educational material.
