KansasFest, the 24th annual convention dedicated to the Apple II computer, returns for another year, running July 23 through July 28, 2013. Users, programmers, hobbyists, and retro-computing enthusiasts are invited to Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Missouri, for six days and five nights of sessions, demos, announcements, contests, and camaraderie. Highlights include keynote speaker Randy Wigginton, the traditional HackFest, an annual programming challenge open to coders of all skill levels, a vendor fair and exhibit hall where enthusiasts can show off, play with and buy and sell new or unusual hardware and software, and so much more.

If you “remember when,” Kansas will be the place to be.
