History of computing resources

The sites listed on this page are all about the history of computing. I have been interested in this side of computer science for a number of years, and wrote two historical essays in the second and third years of university, about early British computers and the development of IBM's OS/360. These essays are available for download as zipped Word files.

This page is divided into a number of sections. These are :


Pioneers and early computers

These sites are all about early computers. This includes all those created up to about the early 1950's.

Mainframe computer history sites

The links in this section are all to sites about the history of mainframe computers, such as IBM's 700 and System/360 ranges.

Home computer history sites

These sites are all about the history of home computers. This includes a number of general sites along with a few sites about specific computers. I've not included Acorn in this list, because Acorn history sites can be found here.
