ラップ『デベロッパーズ』(当然、feat.スティーブ・バルマー)

誰もが芸術家になれるCOLOURlovers、$1Mを資金調達

その昔、Microsoft CEOのSteve Ballmerが、デベロッパー会議のを中断して、詠唱を始め、インターネットを興奮の渦に巻き込んだ。「ディベロパーズ、ディベロパーズ、ディベロパーズ、ディベロパーズ」はすぐにウェブに載せられると共にミックス、リミックスが繰り返され、インターネットの至宝となった。しかし、私が知る限り、本格的な歌が作られた例はなかった。

今日までは。

今日、モバイルデベロッパーのCory Smithから、彼が作って録音した曲を紹介するメールが送られてきた。「音楽を作ることと、ソフトウェアを作ることの対比を、ハードコアなラップにしてみたら、かなり面白いものができた」と 自身のブログに書いている。「Steve Balmerの例は、ほんの飾り」だと、本誌へのメッセージで言っている。たしかに。

下に歌を貼ったので聞いてほしい。これはすばらしい。Smithの書いた詞もその下に貼ってある。

もしMicrosoftが賢明なら、次回のBallmerのスピーチでオープニングに使うだろう ― Appleが本誌に掲載されたすばらしい歌をアンテナゲート記者会見で使ったように。要するに主題は、Microsoftが再びデベロッパーを最重要視しはじめたということ。この歌は完璧だ。


Smixx – Developers (feat. Steve Ballmer) by Smixx

I’m a developer
in many senses of the word
cause I make these applications
but I also use these verbs
to make this music
I construct it line by line
just like when I’m coding
another software design
in both cases
its about design patterns
anyone can get the job done
its the execution that matters
I have many interests
sometimes they conflict
my creativity can usually be a benefit
but sometimes it keeps me
far too busy
but I can’t complain
because my life is hardly gritty
so I think i’ll sit back
and pen myself another ditty
why is it that Linus Torvalds
the only one that Gits me
did you get that reference I was using
or is the thought of source source control too confusing
may just lay myself down a Team Foundation
so I can test the objects of my creation

Chorus (Steve Ballmer)
Developers Developers Developers Developers

not a fan of jewelry
except for Ruby on Rails
I can use my skills
to increase my online sales
capitalize on the popularity of Facebook
or grill up some beats
so they declare me a great cook
never really been a big fan of insects
so I track down bugs
remove them when in test
make sure they never get pushed to production
but sometimes deadlines decide they get rushed in
I’m the same way
when it comes to my songs
perfection is the goal whenever the mic is on
I don’t want a bad verse to slip in the mix
cause it could look really bad
for Cory or smixx
only a fan of your behaviour
if its driven development
theres no sense of
adding features for the hell of it
complexity is irrelevant
whether its with music or software
your users have stories so you should be telling them

Chorus (Steve Ballmer)

seeing my creations
on others devices
after years of concentration
is nothing but priceless
whether its with software
or a song just like this
I put myself out there
so go on and hype this
Running 3 external monitors
off of my macbook
currently reviewer on a Windows Phone Pact book
now I got Steve Ballmer
and he’s bombing on this tracks hook
of course my QA’s on me
cause this app just crashed look
when I write my raps
never use a marker
constantly refactor
like I’m using Resharper
doing ad hoc deploys
and I’m always deliverin’
and I made that choice
regardless of dividends
creating all this noise
in some form
until the bitter end
stating with with my voice
theres no norm
that I can fit within
haven’t been sleeping
but using lots of REST
pass the mic back to who rocked it best
