Beer and Tell – July 2016

Once a month, web developers from across the Mozilla Project get together to talk about our side projects and drink, an occurrence we like to call “Beer and Tell”.

There’s a wiki page available with a list of the presenters, as well as links to their presentation materials. There’s also a recording available courtesy of Air Mozilla.

Moby von Briesen: Jam Circle

This week’s only presenter was mobyvb, who shared Jam Circle, a webapp that lets users play music together. Users who connect join a shared room and see each other as circles connected to a central node. Using the keyboard (or, in browsers that support it, any MIDI-capable device), users can play notes that all other users in the channel hear and see as colored lines on each circle’s connection to the center.

The webapp also includes the beginnings of an editor that will allow users to write chord progressions and play them alongside live playback.

A instance of the site is up and running at Check it out!

If you’re interested in attending the next Beer and Tell, sign up for the mailing list. An email is sent out a week beforehand with connection details. You could even add yourself to the wiki and show off your side-project!

See you next month!
