While the evenings and nights of KansasFest are renowned for their spontaneity, the mornings and afternoons are reserved for sessions spanning a variety of uses, extensions, and applications of the Apple II family. Just as varied as these sessions are the good people who volunteer to present them. If you have a topic you’d like to present, fill out the session proposal form at:
Some sessions already on the dock for this year include:
- Boot-tracing: a fun method of de-protecting games
- Track-center tuning of 5.25″ floppy drives
- Disk II theory of design and functionality
- Teaching US Kids to program
- Apple II hardware-hacking innovations
- Build your own MAME/MESS cabinet in 30 minutes
- Document scanning (with an eye to preserving Apple II history)
- A technical look at the Apple III
- Apple II copy cards
- MPW IIgs cross development
Do you have a topic you would like to see presented, even if you aren’t the one to do it? Email us your idea at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Past sessions have included hardware, software and game demonstrations and tutorials; integration of the Apple II with other devices; emulators; programming; Apple II history; or any subject that would be of interest to Apple II users.
We are especially interested in and prioritize sessions that focus on Apple II-related topics, but as space allows, we also love Mac, iOS and a stray Windows or UNIX session or two.
Sessions are typically 30 to 60 minutes in length and are held at various times throughout the daytime hours.
