Stephanie Rozek to present on audio engineering

Welcome, spring, and we’re back with our April Dinner! This month we’re welcoming Grand Dame of local tech and Girl Geek Stephanie Rozek, who will be telling us about audio engineering. Get your tickets now!

We’ll be meeting up on Thursday, April 23rd at the Communitech Hub again, in the Jelly Bean Room (same as in February). We’ll be kicking things off at 6pm, and Taco Farm will be supplying the tasty eats (their stuff accommodates vegetarian/vegan and gluten-free folks).

Steph is a well-known fixture in the local tech scene. She’s the founder of Hackademy Canada, which focuses on teaching coding and tech literacy. She runs AvocadoDog Marketing agency, is the KW Ambassador for TechGirls Canada and is on the Women in Engineering committee at the University of Waterloo. And that’s just the beginning. Check out her full bio here.

Before all that, Steph earned her Engineering degree from University of Waterloo. She’s also a musician and singer (primarily jazz), hence her love of music and involvement. She’ll be telling us a bit more about her background, and why she knows about this stuff, for starters.

She’ll also give us a quick history of audio engineering, and the nuts and bolts of how sounds are turned into recordings (and vice versa). What happens between voice/instruments, etc., microphone, recording medium, and speakers? Steph will talk about modifying sound, both pre- and post-recording, as well as get into a bit of the debate between analog vs. digital. There’ll be some information about available tools and resources, and maybe a bit about psychoacoustics, which sounds pretty cool if you ask me.

Can’t wait to see everyone, so get your tickets ASAP, and bring along a new friend. We love seeing new faces. 🙂
