At the end of the last version I was getting into the groove—and feeling determined. I had managed to vittle down the instrument backlog to half! I though surely I could do even better! Let’s start digging into the meat of things and, get serious. Now we were going to do things seriously, so therefore […]

Hello, I am Chhavi. I have mostly been helping around with all things design in MetaBrainz. I recently graduated from IIT Guwahati, India and started contributing to MusicBrainz after attending the summit last year, around the same time. As a Google Summer of Code student, my project was to build a design system with React […]

Many moons ago people clamoured for a way for them to use MusicBrainz via their old FreeDB (and others) enabled players.
