Learn Python with Talk Python's Python courses

Pythonic cover songs at Loudr

Some of the best songs are cover songs of popular music. If you're a musician who wants to create a cover song and actually sell it, you'll be diving deep into complex agreements and legal agreements with record labels. Sounds like no fun to me.

But this is where Python comes to the rescue! The guys and girls over at Loudr are using Python to create a service for creating, selling, and distributing cover songs. This week you'll meet one of the co-founders, Josh Whelchel. He's here to tell us all the cool ways Python makes this possible, including a touch of machine learning!
