When Music and Software Come Together

Small Talk
Engineering Culture

Being both a developer and a musician, I am happiest when I see music and software come together. When I do a 'git push', I hum "push it to the limit" to myself. And when I hear a pop song, I believe the lyrics are actually about software development.


This talk takes you on a journey throughout a typical software development process, showing you where music and software cross paths. And because I'll perform the songs myself, the talk doubles as a mini-concert - featuring songs by Coldplay, Oasis, Imagine Dragons and many more.

Scheduled on Friday from 18:10 to 18:35 (Europe/Kiev) in Stream 1

Hanno Embregts

Info Support

Hanno Embregts is a Java Developer, Speaker and Teacher at Info Support (the Netherlands). He has over 14 years of experience with both front- and back-end development, with a special interest in automating the software development process to the fullest.

He likes his work best when it is fast-paced and versatile, which is why he juggles Java development, public speaking and teaching courses at Info Support’s Knowledge Centre. When Hanno doesn’t have access to any kind of computer - which can only be called the most desperate of times - he plays in a band as a lead singer and guitar player. He is also a passionate fan of alternative rock band Switchfoot and Dutch football club Feyenoord. Last but not least: he has been told off repeatedly for using Star Wars quotes at work (things didn’t improve much by replying “I find your lack of faith disturbing”).
