Musixmatch is a startup founded in Italy in 2010, which brought for the first time a very popular request from users in a legal way, thanks to a partnership with the major worldwide music labels: having the chance to easily find song’s lyrics. With an innovative application available for the most important platforms on the market, the service integrates with the most popular music services and players (like Spotify and iTunes) and display lyrics synced in real time, allowing you to turn any device into a Karaoke machine. The application is available also on Windows and Mac as a traditional desktop application, built with the popular web framework Electron. However, Musixmatch wanted to expand the reach of its app and make it easier for Windows users to find it: the Desktop Bridge helped to achieve this goal, allowing them to take the Electron app and turn it into a Store that is available on the Windows Store and that makes easier for them to integrate it with all the new Windows 10 features. In this session, learn more about this exciting app, the conversion process and how, thanks to the Desktop Bridge, the company has been able to quickly reach the Store and make it better thanks to the Universal Windows Platform.

    There is a reason why I bought a Mac, it was not to be one of the cool kids that wanted the best of the best. No it was because of the music production I do on it. Hours and hours sitting in front of my Mac copying, pasting, moving, deleting, hour after hour just beating on my Mac in a endless assault to get my work done. That is the key part, my work. I work from home, it is great, but even if it is from home it is still work and it still needs to get done. So my Mac, I have it because it is fast, gets the job done and comes back for more.

    But what happens when it doesn't want to do those things anymore?

    I move around massive amounts of information and yes even on the almighty Mac this can cause a problem after a while. Things fragment, programs get corrupted issues come up. My light speed Mac slows down to a crawl and all of the sudden I simply can not get any work done. Because I work from home there is no IT guy to call and ask to come fix it. No instead I have to figure out what is wrong. I am lucky, I did, but not after trying everything under the sun first and wasting countless hours looking for one program that can do what I needed instead of ten programs. One program to lead them all….okay that was a lame Lord of the rings reference, but that program was/is Detox My Mac. A simple to use program that did not just fix my issues, it put my Mac on overdrive again. A few clicks and my Mac was clean and ready to rock and roll again.
