HackREGINA meet Rdio API. Rdio API, meet the crazy and creative folk of HackREGINA.
Rdio is the premier digital music service started by the creators of Skype and an amazing addition to our API roster at HackREGINA. The Rdio API was created to enable you clever people to invent great new ways for people to discover, play, and share music.
In addition to being one of the best music API’s out there participating in HackREGINA, on September 29 you get to collaborate on the HackREGINA playlist at HackDays’ Rdio to curate a custom playlists to zone and hack to on the big day and beyond. Rdio is the best place to plug in and hack to your favourite tunes…with over 18 million songs to choose from!
So you’re probably asking… what can you do with the Rdio API? Let us show you:
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.
Check out the Live at Squamish festival website for an example of a seamless and successful integration. The Rdio API made it easy for fans to preview the festival’s line-up, and to discover music by the artists they were about so see live! In the first month, Squamish festival saw over 100K streams of their playlist.
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 18 million songs, it’s easy to build a digital music collection that’s available everywhere – on your smartphone, computer and tablet, on TV, in your car at home and even when you’re offline.
Armed with this knowledge, we’re excited to see what the Regina community can do with Rdio. See you September 29th!
