Greetings, people of the Internet.

... So I started writing code again. I've never been much of a programmer to begin with. I'm more of an (so far) underground music producer. However, as a backup plan in case plan A: To become a famous artist/musician fails I chose to enroll in a form of higher education and study to become a data/network/security-specialist. So far everything's going alright.

We had a course in Linux and we were supposed to write shell scripts to create users and groups and so once again I got hooked. I'm now learning C++ in my sparetime.

I chose my forum name based on my liking for Break-Beat based music, The Chemical Brothers and The Dust Brothers.

There's always been a conflict of interests battling withing me. Whether I should choose to work with more IT-related hobbies or work with electronic music. As for now I'm doing both. I just wish there was a way for me to implement both of these hobbies into one.

So, that's short about me.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Welcome to Dream.In.Code BreaksOnDust! Well correct me if I am wrong, but computing and techno/electronic music are two fields that work well together. For instance, the laser light shows at some concerts, even the pyrotechnics, screens, and some of the more exotic sounds are run by computer programs. I know that this time of year people even wire up their house with xmas lights and sync them to programs they wrote.

You can even write software that generates some of the electronic symphonies. Software that writes music it hears or allows you to record a track and then slice it apart.

I am sure you can do that sort of thing easily and the money would be very good. But anyways, thanks for joining up and hope to see you around!
