If you pine for the early days of computer science, there’s a conference happening next week at the University of the Sciences you won’t want to miss.

The PA/DE/NJ Distance Learning Association’s (PADLA) is hosting its 14th Annual Conference & Expo on Tuesday, Dec. 20 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., featuring a talk from technologist Bill Mauchly — son of ENIAC inventor John Mauchly and an OG technologist in his own right (remember his Ignite Philly talk?) — who will be interviewed by Jim Scherrer, founding director of Exton, Pa.’s Compuseum.

A following presentation session features researcher Mick Smith discussing “A Short History of Philadelphia Computer History: Why You Care ‘Moore.'”

“The Conference also features 25 concurrent education/training technology/methodology sessions, 20+ exhibitors, free food, free parking, prizes & an opportunity to network/collaborate with the PADLA professional community,” said Louis Stricoff, PADLA’s executive director, in an email.
