Making Beats for Developers

Let's dive deep into the world of beats, baby! Learn how to use AudioWorklet and arraybuffers to make beats that will get your head bobbin'. It's like a React component, but for your ears!

Some Key Takeaways!

By participating along with us in the workshop, you'll learn:

  • Gain a deep understanding of AudioWorklet and the Web Audio API.
  • Create beats using arraybuffers, so you're in full control of the sound.
  • Flex your React and web dev muscles in an entirely new and fresh application.
  • Get your groove on and add audio elements to your web projects like a pro.
