ALE CENTRAL MTG. for Thurs., Sept. 16th, 2010

Filed at 5:54 pm under by Ruscetta


The highlight presentation at the ALE Central Meeting
for 7:30pm on Thursday, Sept. 16th, 2010 will be:

“The Joy of Sox:
a tour of command-line sound processing”

as presented by the very soxy and alluring Charles Shapiro

Synopsis:
— This short talk will include some rather silly sox stunts, an
explanation of the sox command line with plenty of runnable examples,
and a show-off of my very own simple but effective batch-mode
vinyl/cassette album processor, done in bash(1), sox(1), and lame(1).

bio:
— Charles Shapiro is a fan of fencing, gadgetry, juggling, gizmos,
beer brewing, obscure weaponry, radio control (in all it’s connotations),
and most anything else the that lesser world might consider “geek”.
Consistent to these avocations he has been a professional programmer
for over 14 years, specializing in C and Unix with a couple years of
C++, Perl and a plethora of Python in the mix. He can type faster than
most people can talk, is a Linux Lunacy Cruise alumnae, a liberty
minded friend of the EFF, an officially sanctioned Richard Stallman
impersonator for the FSF, and a seriously committed GNU Linux
zealot since 1996.
