It also maintains the tradition of running a compo (competition) for "Oldskool" computers - the Commodore 64 or older including the Atari ST, Sinclair Spectrum and Amstrad CPC6128.

The non-stop BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) event from Assembly Organizing, which also includes seminars, concerts and gaming was held in the largest sports arena in Finland to accommodate over 5000 visitors and 3500 computers.
