Today I attended the first half of the Music Hackday, in Barcelona. Here some pictures:
I should certainly spend many more words about this great event, but in short:
- Congrats to the orgas for the smooth and enjoyable day: plenty of space to hack, nice location, and the internet connection was just working
- There’s a lot of interesting APIs and products outside to explore, more than I expected: besides the big and very-well-known players like Last.fm, I discovered The Echo Nest, Canoris and MuseScore, just to mention a few.
- I never tried this unconference formula before, but I think I’ll look for more: even if I didn’t hack very much (just polished some bits of my MusixMatch API Perl client), I really enjoyed the general atmosphere, and I can’t wait to see what the other attendees will present tomorrow.
