Jeremy Keith knows a lot about Irish traditional music
I wrote this post a while back. The content can still be relevant but the information I've linked to may not be available.
The last £5 App meeting in Brighton featured web developer Jeremy Keith talking about his website The Session. At least, that's what I thought it was intended to be. In fact, Jeremy gave a detailed introduction to the website by talking about the history and background to traditional Irish music, including some music playing demonstrations with an Irish bouzouki .... and then followed this with a description of the web development behind The Session.
If only I had a more musical ear, I would now know the difference between a jig, a reel, a hornpipe, and other such types of Irish tunes!
Actually, the web development part of the presentation was equally effusive and one of the main points that came across was lots of attention to detail in the development of the website and a carefully considered, incremental, development plan.
I think I learnt quite a lot from the presentation, some of it rather unexpected I have to say...
