I believe 2014 will be the year that music arrives on the web. Not just listening to music - I'm talking about composing, collaborating and performing music too. Using a new educational tool called Sonic Pi, we'll run over everything you need to know to start coding music. You might even learn the Ruby programming language in the process!
We'll look at:
How - you make sounds with code.
Why - code has advantages over traditional tools like GarageBand and Logic.
Where - you can find people coding music to find out more.
