Re: Anyone here make software?

Yup.

In terms of languages, in no particular order, Perl/TCL, Python, Java, JavaScript/TypeScript/ES6, PHP, Lisp, Bash and a tiny little bit of C.

These days I mainly work on server side web dev and in my spare time IoT projects and applications for creative media professionals.

Recent pro gigs include:

- Code reviewer for a supply chain management application

- Front-end developer for real estate and property groups

- eCommerce / Retail management systems in multiple industries


Side projects at the moment include:

- Record label asset management. Stores demo submissions, pre-master assets, release assets, artwork, artist/album metadata etc...

- Application for audio professionals for creating FOH running sheets for sound checks, load in/out, stage plots and gear lists. Will be extended to track studio projects and also a mobile app for making field recording notes.

- rPi DSLR photo streamer for professional photographers which converts and streams images across a network in real time. Will include features to pick/drop pictures before downloading them, as well as an interface for clients to rate photos as they're taken, etc.

- XML version control for audio project files (see this thread) basically will be a git wrapper which lets you commit change history of supported DAW project files.

Yes! This would be awesome. Definitely keep me posted on this. I'll surely purchase it (hopefully it will be for IOS?)


to the OP: I've been noodeling around with the unreal engine since around 2001, and with its latest iteration, have dabbled with some C++. Certainly not savvy enough to develop something from the ground up.

I'll probably make it a web app first and then a mobile app second. Just because it's a lot easier than developing for one platform then refactoring for the other.

I will probably start a thread about this in the near future anyway as I need to get some sample folder data from various field recorders. For example, my Zoom H6n generates something like the following (from memory):

Quote:
/ZOOM00001
- ZOOM00001_LR.WAV
- ZOOM00001_03.WAV
- ZOOM00001_04.WAV
- ZOOM00001_05.WAV
- ZOOM00001_06.WAV
... if you're using the in-built capsules, it's just _LR.WAV, or 3-6 if you're using external mics.

So I need sample data for folder structures from other vendors because I'd like to be able to replicate this structure and customisation options so that the names and folders are automatically generated. So you would literally just tap a button on your phone to create the next field note and then start recording. So long as you remember to at least create the note with each recording, when you get home you would login on your computer and have a decent set of notes.

Then of course, it would be super cool to add pick / dropping that actually clears out the drops before you import... But I digress...

Very few people are these days. There are so many libraries, frameworks and build tools now that a lot of development work is more about being able to connect different things together or follow a design pattern than it is building things from scratch.

It makes sense when you think about it though. Why bother reinventing the wheel when there are already 5,000 other wheels you could evaluate and choose from?

Re: Anyone here make software?

And if you're into electronic music, it's well worth learning to program. The workflow is really similar and the money is really good

Re: Anyone here make software?

I feel you on that. The new "blue prints" that the unreal engine uses is awesome. Pretty much a visual C++ workflow. I use the Zoom iQ6 with my ipad. just a little stereo capsule. I think the naming convention is similar to what you mentioned. It would be incredibly cool if the app could use the internal naming convention and have things set up for you when it came time to importing. I'll definitely keep an eye out for that thread and will gladly beta test her!

Re: Anyone here make software?

Python is one of the most versatile, forgiving, effective, and well-supported languages that I have ever worked with.

It's amazing when you couple it with something like C/C++.

mostly C#/.Net back end stuff. we interface with all kinds of medical systems at hospitals (heart monitors, EMRs, etc) and allow doctors to access all that information on their mobile devices.
