The Music Hackday Comes to Boston

The London Music Hackday

<W00T!> -The Music Hackday is coming to Boston.  Set aside the weekend of November 21 and 22 for the Boston Music Hackday being held at  the Microsoft New England Research and Develpment Center (aka NERD).   The Music Hackday is a place where folks can gather for a weekend of nearly uninterrupted hacking on music.  Expect to see (and hear) all kinds of music hacks: from web-hacks, iPhone apps, analog noisemakers to cool visualizations.  Anything goes as long as it is music related.   The Boston hackday is being organized by Dave Haynes (SoundCloud), Jon Pierce (Betahouse) and myself (The Echo Nest).  We here at the Echo Nest are pretty excited to be involved. It should be really fun.

If you hack music and are going to be within a day’s drive of Boston on the weekend before  Thanksgiving, you really should be planning to attend the hackday.  Registration is free, but space is limited. To guarantee a spot register early and be sure you tell us how you want to hack music (because of the limited number of slots, we give preference to music hackers).

Event:   Boston Music Hackday
When:  November 21, 22
Where: NERD
