WelcomeThe Australasian Heritage Software project is a publicly-compiled and accessible database documenting Australian and New Zealand software history. The field of software history is enormous and largely undocumented. Few repositories of software or documentation exist. This project aims to collect documentation from the public - and, where feasible, source code - in order to create a picture of the software written locally, and to present this online.
The general public and specialist fans and collectors know a lot about software and computer history. That's why we are asking people to please pitch in and help us build a publicly accessible database of this information.
We want to receive information about software that either was locally created in Australia and New Zealand, or created by locals. Please enter information about any Australian and/or New Zealand software that you are aware of, from the earliest mainframes to the present day.
