On behalf of NYHacker, “the nyc hacker union” I am proud to announce Music Hack Day New York. Since the first Music Hack Day, (London, July 2009) New York has been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the most awesome music hackfest on the planet.
Music Hack Day is about creating software, hardware, art… anything at all related to music. We’ll kick the event off with a few short tech talks from leading music startups and then jump right into hacking. There will also be longer form workshops throughout the event to get down and dirty with the latest in music tech. To wrap it all up all creators will be given a chance to strut their stuff and win fame and fortune (prizes) for their hard work.
We’ve got a great lineup of speakers that we’ll be announcing over the weeks leading up to the event, keep an eye on http://nyc.musichackday.org for the latest info. I’ll be demoing the Twilio API and hacking all weekend long on a mix of geo, mobile, bio, and music technology. I’m really looking forward to all of the great hacks, especially ones that use Twilio.
- When: 12-13 February 2011
- Where: Manhattan TBA (it’s a great venue, we promise)
