AudioKit Day at UC Irvine

Aure at UCI

Aure just got back from a trip down south to give guest lectures and an afternoon workshop at UC Irvine's COSMOS program. It was for Cluster 5: Sound For Mobile Devices: Physical Modeling And Programming. He spent the morning discussing Human-Computer Interaction, live-coding AudioKit demos, and discussing what it's been like to run an open-source audio toolkit project. The students had a lot of great discussions with Aure, offering ingenious answers to Aure's challenges and asking all the right questions of Aure as well! It's a four week program and the students were starting their second week. Each team's goal is to have an audio app by the end of the program, so we're really looking forward to see what they produce.

Good luck everyone!



AudioKit crushes at the WatchKit Hackathon

Aure's two teams, "Pow!" and "AirDrum", won and got honorable mention at the 2015 Apple Watch Hackathon. Pair programming with Brian Jordan, Aure created both apps from the same code base, powered by AudioKit, and just took slightly different takes at the same problem. It was quite a challenge to learn WatchOS2, WCSession stuff, and make compelling apps in one afternoon!

AudioKit at Apple Watch Hackathon

Come join us in San Francisco on June 13 2015, for the Apple Watch Hackathon! Here are some more details:

We won't have a team or app idea until we arrive, so come in and pitch some cool audio apps that we can power with AudioKit!


AudioKit Swift Examples

Swift

Special thanks to Matt Fecher (@goFecher) for taking the initiative to port all of the AudioKit Examples that weren't already in Swift to Swift. In particular he created the following projects:

Matt, you rock!
