WORLDWIDE ONLINE NEWTON CONFERENCE 2020

This is the informational site of the first Worldwide Online Newton Conference, the greatest online meeting of Newton users in over a decade.
We have planned several interesting presentations and interviews. More information below.

ABOUT

Someone might think that the Apple Newton (Apple® first handheld computer) is an outdated and abandoned technology. Nothing could be more wrong! This is evidenced foremost by progress on the Newton emulator, available to run Newton OS on modern Windows, Linux, and macOS platforms. Several hardware and software projects are also being developed. Therefore, this online conference was a great opportunity to learn and chat about the latest news.

Worldwide Online Newton Conference 2020 was the first online conference gathering Apple Newton users from around the world. Since the beginning of 2020 turned out to be a great, unpleasant surprise for the whole world (and thus social distancing), we thought that it would be great to meet (virtually) and stay in touch. A great opportunity to meet other Newton Users, but take care of our state of mind and well-being too.
