Sonic Pi ( http://sonic-pi.net ) is a live coding music synthesiser designed to help teach both computing and music within schools. It uses fast feedback, liveness and studio-quality sound production as a means to engage school children in introductory coding. In this talk we will follow the story of Sonic Pi from its the humble beginnings of this project in a single class of school-children coding beeps and bleeps to its current standing as a state-of-the-art live coding system installed by default on all Raspberry Pis used to live code in a variety of venues from Algoraves to national music venues. All towards a simple but deep question – how can we give more people an understanding of what programming is and can do?
