What is Flashback?
Flashback is a computer demoscene party hosted once a year in Sydney Australia.
Hackers turn up on the day and present their creations, such as realtime graphics running on old and new computers, homebrew hardware, pre-rendered animations, graphics and music.
The word "demoparty" is globally used to describe this gathering of coders, musicians, graphic artists and creative minds under one roof which share their work and compete with others.
Small prizes are given to the coolest "demo" which is voted for by all the attendees at the party.
If you love computers, new and old, you'll enjoy Flashback, so be sure to register.
When and where is the party?
Flashback 2014 opens it's doors on Saturday (the 7th), Sunday (the 8th) and Monday (the 9th) of June over the Queens birthday long weekend in the Sydney CBD.
