Workshops! The core activity for the music hack day weekend is hacking. But before we dive into the hard core hacking the weekend starts with a set of music tech workshops where hackers can learn about the latest in music technologies – it’s a way for the hacker to add more tools to their toolbox. On Saturday morning we will be conducting around 25 workshops running in 5 sessions of 5 parallel tracks. Anyone interested in the music+technology space will likely find something interesting – music recommendation, concert/event data, music meta-data, iPhone programming, electronic instrument construction, Playdar, NPR – everything from how to author a song for the Rock Band Network to the Yahoo! query language. If you are going to the Hack Day, you may want to do a little bit of planning to help you decide which of the workshops you’ll want to attend, so check out the workshop schedule.
