We don’t post that often: true. But we do like to share our experiences, successes and failures. The post below was written after Linkedin announced and congratulated me with “5 years working at WebComrades”.
When I googled “webcomrades” 5 years ago…there was about a handful of lost results, not even one full page on Google. I decided to name my first company WebComrades. Inspired by too many nightly Call of Duty sessions, most likely. Here’s my personal view on the first 5 years at WebComrades.
When we got the request to build an app to measure the RT60 value with an iPhone, my first thought was: “RT60, you say?” Right. I had no idea what it was, let alone how to measure it. I was told it was measuring a “machinegun”-sound, followed by some simple Excel-kinda-calculation to get the RT60 result.
Well, it turned out to be a little different. But we dug in deep and shot on sight. This is the story of a battle against Fourier Transformations, ANSI S1.11-2004 and audio ring buffering.
