Cats, The Musical! Algorithmic Song Meow-ification

Beth Haubert · Full Stack Fest 2018

How are we supposed to sing along with our favorite TV theme song every week if it doesn’t have lyrics?

At Beth's house, they “meow” along (loudly). They also code, so she built ‘Meowifier’ to convert any song into cat meows. Meowifier is a technical feat. It’s hilarious. It’s beautiful. It’s a new way to waste time on the internet.

Join her in this exploration of technical problem solving & gratuitous cat gifs. This talk is the story of how a silly idea morphed into one technical challenge after another, focusing on three aspects of the build that we might be surprised to learn were unique challenges.
