Poems for bugs

This is talk about C64 coding that I held at Revision 2013.


Platforms come and go, but the C64 remains.

This is a seminar about the beauty of C64 coding, how it relates to other human endeavours, and why it is as culturally relevant as ever. We will see how, for thousands of years, people have meticulously crafted works of art in a waning tradition that, perhaps unexpectedly, lives on through C64 coding.

While there are clear connections between the demoscene and the visual arts and music, little has been said about the literary skills of the coder. Skills that, unfortunately, have lost their significance on modern platforms.

Don't miss this extraordinary programming seminar for coders and non-coders alike.

Some useful resources

Hej, just noticed that the page is broken if you get here via HTTPS; not all browsers allow you to embed HTTP frames in an HTTPS page these days. Should be easy to fix.

Hey Linus,

Amazing. I see you are able to assume the form of a sprite in Real Life and toggle your priority via $D01B at will. In this way you can choose to appear in front or behind any non-sprite graphics at any time. Anyone can see for themselves... https://youtu.be/9ZNjB5jmHdE?t=1731
