EADGBE, in case you wondered, is the standard tuning for guitar strings. There are many things that pulled me into building guitars about a decade ago. And the more guitars I build, the more I realize that the reasons I like building guitars are pretty similar to what I enjoy about developing software.

Have you ever wondered what goes into building a custom electric guitar? What physics and electronics are involved? And what makes a guitar great? And what myths still float around in the guitar world? I’ll tell you all about it in this talk.

Prepare for a session with plenty of geeky topics, physics, woodworking and analogies between the worlds of luthiery and software craftsmanship.
