Development at Ableton

How does the development of Live happens at Ableton? How do they handle problems, bug fixing, how they do Scrum? Lately they release a video at their blog:

As part of a campaign to recruit new members to our team, we made a short film to show – instead of just describe – what it’s like to work as a developer at Ableton. Here’s your chance to meet the people who make the tools you use, see how their work is evolving, and find out what inspires them.

Some points that I found interesting:

  • They have small self-organized teams of 2-3 people
  • Time is organised into milestone (a feature) which is 4 sprints and one hacking and planning sprint. One sprint is 2 week long.
  • They have Dev and Music salons where they share knowledge.



Music programming or programming music?

Lately I came across this video which is kind of funny. But audio-programmers should find it at least inspiring 🙂 MIDI notes are mapped as keyboard events so player can program a software.
