- The Alternate Source Programmer's Journal
The Alternate Source Programmer's Journal was a magazine with deeply technical programming articles, most of which were at the Assembly Language level, for the
TRS-80. It was published by Charlie Butlerand Joni M. Kosloskiof The Alternate Source, a major TRS-80software publisher, from around 1980 to around 1983. TAS was known for the high intensity level of its articles and as such was the "prestige" technical journal of the time. Among its more notable contributors were Jake Commander, Jack Decker, Bruce Hansen, Larry Kingsbury, Dennis Kitsz, Steven Kovitz, Alan Moluf, Troy L. Pierceand Gordon Williams.
The meaning behind the name "The Alternate Source" is that TAS set itself up as being an alternative to the official software and information coming from
Radio Shack, the manufacturer of the TRS-80.
