The Rdio API at HackMTL??!? That’s music to my ears!
Hack Montréalers meet Rdio API.
Rdio is the premier digital music service started by the creators of Skype and the newest addition to our API roster at #HackMTL. The Rdio API was created to enable you clever people to invent great new ways for people to discover, collect, share and play music.
In addition to being one of the best music API’s out there, Rdio is the best place to plug in and hack to your favourite tunes…with over 15 million songs to choose from! In fact, we’ll be working with all of you on June 9 to help build out the #HackMTL playlist on the HackDays.ca Rdio account to bring some musical inspiration to the other coders who weren’t able to make it (and a little something to help you remember the day too).
But for now, let’s get down to business – what can you do with the Rdio API? Glad you asked.
Rdio API set the stage for Anthm, a great app that puts the remote in the hands of the people for collective collaboration to control music played at parties or just hanging out with friends.
On the Live at Squamish festival website, the Rdio API was used to make it easy for fans to preview the festival’s line-up.
Rdio’s platform is the destination to discover what friends, people with similar tastes and recording artists are listening to in real-time and across other channels, such as Twitter and features a great Facebook Open Graph integration. With more than 15 million songs, it’s easy to build a digital music collection that’s available everywhere – on your smartphone, computer and tablet, on TV, at home and even when you’re offline.
Armed with this knowledge, we’re excited to see what the Montréal community can do with Rdio. See you June 9!
