Mankind has accomplished many great feats of engineering and willpower, but few as awesome as putting a human being on the surface of the moon. Men and women from all walks of life, all sorts of techincal backgrounds and specialties came together to do the impossible. A large part of the success of the mission depended on the Apollo Guidance Computer. The AGC was truly ahead of its time despite most of it looking low-tech and simplistic by today's standards. In this session, we'll take an in-depth look at the Apollo Guidance Computer - how it was architected and built, some of the clever innovations that were used to push the envelope of what was possible in 1969, and even dig in to some of the code that helped mankind land on the moon and return safely home.
