Adafruit visited the history of the LOGO “turtle graphics” language not long ago.
Now on Twitter, folks have found the source code for the LOGO program used on Apple II computers. Source on GitHub.
It turns out that the program was written on a DEC PDP-10 minicomputer running the Incompatible Timesharing System (ITS).
I’d take it that the code is in 6502 assembly and the program works the whole Apple II memory map for functionality. Did ITS have a 6502 cross-compiler or did the MIDAS program have separate target environments?
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
