“Personal Computing on the VIC 20” manual is on-line, but prepared for a slow download.

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/08/16

From a while ago:

David Ratnasabapathy: The VIC-20 programmer’s manual was the best intro to programming I’ve ever read. I’d love to find a copy online, the new generation could use it.

+Isaac Kuo that book is wealth. I loved marginal explanations that expanded on the main text, it’s a tactic I use in my own class notes.

The manual was called Personal Computing on the VIC 20 and it is online! This is amazing! Ah, memories.

Downloaders: that site is slow. Not as slow as the New Horizons uplink, nor as slow as 1980s modems, but be prepared for some serious wait time.

    Some accounting software for a friend’s business for the VIC-20 was the first paid software job I ever did – that is going back quite a few decades now ;-)
