Joe Berkovitz, founder of music software startup Noteflight, will talk about the technical underpinnings and lessons learned in building a full-fledged music notation editor on the Flex/Flash platform.
Topics covered will include: MVCS architecture, audio synthesis, non-linear visual layout algorithms, and automated testing. A short excursion covering the new Moccasin open source framework for graphical editors might be worked in. And be sure to bring your Zippo lighter so you can hold it up and request "Free Bird"!
Prior to founding Noteflight, Joe Berkovitz was a Chief Architect at Allurent, Ruckus Network and Unveil Technologies. Even earlier, he was part of ATG for eight years developing many core components & originating a number of key ideas with patents granted or pending. Prior to ATG, Joe worked at Houghton Mifflin; Stratus Computer; and Bolt, Beranek and Newman, among others.
