This Month's Topics

  • Empowering Early-Career Developers
    By: Mercedes Bernard
    Experience Level: Novice
    How can teams invest in and grow their less experienced developers into team-leading senior devs? I believe the first step is empowering them. On my team, we’ve created a process for each team member to lead and own one of our core features. Our early-career developers are learning client management and team leadership skills that they wouldn’t usually get to practice until they stepped into a senior role. In this talk, I’ll share what we’ve learned and a framework for you to create a process tailored to your team so you can provide your early-career developers the opportunities they need to become successful, senior team members.
  • Plug-n-Stream Player Piano: Signal Processing With Python
    By: JP Bader
    Experience Level: Intermediate
    Digital Signal Processing and Player Piano don't normally come together in the same sentance. Player Pianos that are 100+ years old are awesome artisan artifacts, but they don't play digital formats very well. This talk will show how we take a 100+ year old technology and marry it to the digital age via Python libraries and precision lasers! In this discussion we will cover how we are creating our own "Plug-n-Stream Player Piano". We will take a look at the different digital signal processing Python libraries, their functionality, and requirements for converting audio streams to piano playable audio files. After a brief walk through of our prototyped hardware, we will dissect the digital signal processing, converting streaming music to data for the Player Piano. With a real Player Piano in the room we will demo streaming music from our devices onto the piano. LIVE(ish) Piano Playing!
