TEAM 1 Presentation Abstract

My team consists of three members, including myself, and we will be presenting about the technology advancement in the music industry. The technology used in the music industry is crucial when it comes to recording and capturing sound waves. For many years, the only way to properly record music was to use a tape recorder, which was a giant machine that used reels of tape to capture the audio coming through a microphone. With today’s technological advancements, recording music is much easier. All you have to do is buy an audio interface, connect a microphone into the interface, and then connect your interface into your computer… THAT’S IT! My group will be presenting on how easy it is for the local musician to record their own music for less than $500.

Finding the Top 10 in Billboard Using PYTHON!

In this exercise of Python, we were able to create our very own webpage, giving the Billboard’s Top 10 songs as of March 25, 2019. The program was able to create a separate link to a website which displayed my application as well as the statistics of the top 10 songs, which were programmed to be taken from the actual Billboard website and automatically updated whenever the list changed.
