Since the launch of Spotify for Developers, many talented creators could tap into Spotify’s extensive music data and build great audio apps and experiences. For this session, we are happy to welcome Alvaro, Developer Advocate at Spotify for Developers, who will help us explore this platform to develop experiences for millions of music fans.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to create a Node.js based app which allows Spotify users to log in and check new recommendations according to their music preferences.

Agenda 👇

Time ⏳
The workshop will be held online with a duration of 1h15 minutes.

⚠️ We will need a Spotify account No worries, most APIs can be used with a free account.

⚠️ This workshop assumes that you have some knowledge of JavaScript and Node.js If you don't have Node.js installed on your computer, we recommend you follow the official Installing Node.js guide which covers the installation on different platforms.

⚠️ We will use standard JavaScript features with some additional libraries, such as Express or Pug to create templates.

Finally, we have prepared a public GitHub repository that we will use as a starting point for the workshop. Feel free to clone it!
