The Homebrew Computer

The Homebrew Computer Club Homebrew Computer Club was a club for enthusiasts of computers. Their first meeting took place in March 1975 carried out in the garage of one of its members in Menlo Park (San Mateo County) in California. Members of this club were amateurs, but most of them were trained in electronic engineering or programming. They went to meetings to talk about the Altair 8800 and other technical issues and to share schedules and programming tips. From the ranks of the Homebrew Computer Club have left the founders of many microcomputer companies, such as Bob Marsh, Adam Osborne, or the famous Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. Since the first meeting of the Homebrew Computer Club have been born other similar clubs around the world. For example, in Holland saw a computer club with members who gathered near the city of Utrecht. The HCC (Hobby Computer Club) still exists, has thousands of members and publishes a magazine.
