At work I do Powershell scripting for all our applications, which can be pretty interesting work, making all the appropriate changes and running programs appropriately to get them install without user input. I also use command line on Windows for routine stuff here and there.
On Linux, I like using bash/sh, and actually wrote a script a while back for unpacking zips from Bleep.com (for buying music) and sorting them into their appropriate directories for my music library. I’m working on porting it over to command line for when I’m on my Windows desktop.
I have some knowledge of using Python and C++, tho my C++ is probably fairly rusty and I haven’t had any real regular usage of either since taking classes.
Working at my job now, and scripting software has exposed me to tracking down bugs and issues in software and working with devs to get them fixed, or exploring how things are packed and how installers are made, and how software is put together, i.e. necessary computer resources needed and working across different technologies (network, SQL, registry changes, etc), and I’ve become interested in trying to find work in it somewhere. If I could get more direct experience with coding, that is practical coding, integrating code from different sources, adding on functionality, updating code when new versions of the languages are released, things like that I enjoy.
For music production stuff, I do use Max/MSP here and there. In fact, I have one sample looper (called “Slooper”) that I made in Max/MSP, which is essentially a sample player/looper that you can make cool stutter edits and time stretch sort of FX with. I’ve actually used it in productions here and there, which has been pretty cool.
I also occasionally like setting things up on my home server, which I use for the Beat Battle archives. I recently setup a new minecraft server on that as well, and I’d like to additionally setup a sort of music player server, for listening to my music when I’m away from my apartment.
