Five Musical Patterns for Programmers
Location: Ballroom A Audience level:
Music and software have more in common than some might think. They are both creative endeavors, both follow certain rules and structures, and both encourage experimentation. In this talk, we will look at five patterns from the world of music that are relevant to programming. This is not a talk about using software to generate music, but rather what programmers can learn from music history and theory.
Specifically, we will discuss:
- Tonality and atonality
For each of these topics, we will look at specific code examples, using Ruby on Rails. And we will listen to music!
