Anyone Can Play Guitar (With Ruby)

I’m delighted to be speaking at RubyConf Mini this November in Providence, RI. I hope you’ll consider joining us.

Abstract 🔗

I’ve got the blues. I’ve been looking for the perfect guitar tone, but haven’t found it. To amp up my mood, let’s teach a computer to play the guitar through an amplifier.

Let’s string together object-oriented principles to orchestrate a blues shuffle. We’ll model our domain with the help of inheritance, composition, and dependency injection. This talk will strike a chord with you, whether you’ve strummed a guitar before or not.
