Task: Explore the The Modern Atari 8-Bit Computer YouTube Channel
Needed: Web Browser
Time: 30-60 mins for watching several videos
I have learned a lot about Atari 8-bit computers and video game consoles by watching YouTube videos. One of my favorite channels is the Modern Atari 8-Bit Computer which provides interesting content on computer hardware, software, and games. Further, there are videos from Atari parties and club meetings which can be really interesting and give you a taste of what it is like to attend an Atari event. The content is provided by Mr. Nir Dary from Israel. As of now there are more than 70 videos on the site to browse. Some are only a few minutes long while others take 10-20 minutes to watch.
Navigate to the videos on YouTube and dive in!
I have met Nir in person and he is a super nice guy who is very passionate about Atari 8-bit computers. Be sure and introduce yourself if you see him at a meetup!
