Ruth John - Let's Talk About Web MIDI
Fresh off the stage from JSConf Uruguay, JSDay Verona and ScotlandJS, Ruth introduces us to an API which can be overlooked in web dev.
What do you think of when you hear 'MIDI', bad computer music? Websites playing annoying music when you land on them? Then let Ruth introduce and educate you into a new world of MIDI.
In this enticing and interactive presentation we’ll journey through the different MIDI specifications and look at other web APIs. From sound with General MIDI and the Web Audio API, to the MIDI Visual Control, timing projections with the Web Animation API and on to the latest MIDI BLE standard, what a better way to demo the Web Bluetooth API.
The web is getting hardware-ready and this talk is a great beginning to those APIs at our fingertips. Think you know MIDI - think again there’s so much more to it.
