The History of Tech: Homebrew Computer Club Conducts First Meeting

The history of tech is a series where we showcase the historical tales of technology

The computer industry has significantly evolved in the past decade or two, we have seen many computers come in, various versions and models are being constantly developed to cater the needs of the people throughout the world.

The Homebrew Computer Club holds the title of being the earliest computer hobbyist group in Silicon Valley that held its first meeting on the 5th of March 1975.

This date surely holds a great significance in the history of computing, for many people who played an important part in the early years of personal computing attended the meetings of the Homebrew Computer Club during its history. One of the most important meetings was perhaps almost exactly one year after the first when Steve Wozniak brought his design for what eventually becomes the Apple I computer.
