It would be great if we could get more students involved in linux audio. 8
years ago, I picked up linux in order to program some DSP audio code that I
was thinking about. It really lowered the barrier of entry into audio
programming. I think more engineering students could get involved, knowing
some of the things you can do with linux.

My university didn't have an audio program--there were maybe just a few
engineers I knew that were strongly inclined to work on audio or
acoustics. There is a lack of collaboration between engineering and
art/music students here and very little direction from professors
concerning art and technology--but I see some of that beginning to change.

I think that linux is much more well known and it's easier than ever to get
started. So--might I suggest to do something more for student outreach?
What do you think would make a difference?
