ARTtech: Peter Smets: Retro Coding for Dummies (

Coding demos for old platforms is hard, people will tell you. Well it's not that hard these days.. With a few basic (pun intended) steps you can get a pretty decent result and have bucketloads of self gratification emptied over yourself. And to achieve this all you need to do is to be able to copy/paste from the internet and put some examples in the right order. This seminar focuses on the Commodore 64 and how to start making demos for it but applies to any platform with a 6502 derivate. Why the Commodore 64..? It has just small amount of memory, extremely low screen resolution, a fixed color palette, a ridiculously outdated CPU architecture but it still is the best computer ever made.
