In 1957 the Irish Sugar Company installed the first stored program computer
Ireland. Other large organisations slowly followed suit.
Gordon Clarke will discuss how the early computers enhanced the
systems that had developed over the previous 60 years. He will talk about
specifications, a few of the first applications and tell the story of the
very early years
of designing and developing computer based systems.
