About the course
Sonic Pi is an open source programming environment developed at Cambridge University by Dr Sam Aaron, designed to explore and teach programming concepts through the process of creating new sounds.
What that means is Sonic Pi is a program which will help you to learn about coding in Ruby while you make some cool music.
Sonic Pi was developed to be a platform for the live coding of music, so that the code can be manipulated, changed and adapted in real time; this means coders can make changes to the music as the computer is playing it, and perform their code rather than just playing pre-written programs. (In fact, Dr Sam travels all over the world as part of a DJ team called MetaeX, coding his sets live on stage using Sonic Pi!)
