We are thrilled to welcome icon Dr. David Bradley back to the original IBM site in Boca Raton where the Personal Computer was first created. In September, 1980, Dave became one of the "original 12" engineers working on the IBM Personal Computer, responsible for the ROM BIOS code. Dr. Dave is also the man behind the invention of “Control-Alt-Delete”. This is a historic walk down memory lane that you will not want to miss!
