What Making Records Taught Me About Writing Code

I used to make records. Now I make apps. Turns out they aren’t really all that different. Except one is louder. Ever wondered if there is any other career that is similar to programming? Curious how making records may or may not related to coding? Interested in seeing lots of pictures on a big screen while someone describes what they are? Then this is the talk for you. I spent 25 years making things louder and learned a few things along the way. This talk goes over some of the obvious (and not so obvious) lessons I learned in audio that are applicable to writing software (or any other creative/technical endeavor). Note: This is less of a technical and more of an inspiration talk.
