DEC Tech Talks

Here's a new feature we began in February 2022 -- DEC Tech Talks, via Zoom.

Tech Talk #3: August 31, 2022 - 4 pm Eastern/1 pm Pacific time

Our #3 DEC Tech Talk will be delivered by DEC Connection member Bob Nusbaum, another of our super-duper utility fielders - a great product manager. He'll speak about "High-Tech Darwinism" -- his experiences and observations of Digital from his FMS and ALL-IN-1 product manager roles. Bob worked at Digital for 18 years (plus 4 at CPQ). Discussion continues as long as everyone wants afterwards.

To sign up for DEC Tech Talks, email info@decconnection.org. Provide your name, and email address for the Zoom invite. We expect these sessions to be under an hour - 30-40 min. talk, 15-20 min. Q&A/discussion. But if you get into it, and have fun, we won't cut anyone off! We'll record the sessions.

To sign up to deliver a DEC Tech Talk, please email info@decconnection.org with your name and a bit about your Digital background and what you'd like to present.

Tech Talk #2: July 12, 2022

Our #2 DEC Tech Talk was delivered by DEC Connection member Nathan (Teichholtz) Brookwood, who worked at Digital from 1968-1978. During that time he created and coded the RSTS time-sharing operating system, and started DECnet. He will discussed the history of Digital's RSTS with emphasis on the early days.

Tech Talk #1:  February 19, 2022

Bob Anundson, a DEC Connection member from Washington state, proposed that we organize short presentations about Digital products, engineering culture, and whatever else interests you, with Q&A/discussion time afterwards. In the time-honored tradition of Digital, he who proposes does, and Bob has graciously kicked off this series with a prototype session. He focused mostly on his Maynard experiences in Product Marketing using the PDP-11/10, 11/40, RK05, VT50/VT52, and software licensing as examples between 1969 and 1975, in the context of Digital culture.
