Adventure Time Beta Test Group Assemble

Roll call for Adventure Time beta testers! There were not too many signups for the adventure park excursion but we'll do it anyway, just with a smaller (elite) group (of highly trained professionals) tomorrow on 9.9. Meet us in Laajavuori at 5PM or later on in the city for dinner and drinks around 7.30 or 8PM.

I can be reached on my cell +358503723711 for both adventure time beta testing and the operation dinner out specifics later on. See ye!

GC Adventure Time

It's been a long time since the days of our sauna ferry day, and I figured it could be nice to arrange some kind of communal activity again. They opened an adventure park in Laajavuori where one crosses and passes various obstacles on a roped course. Sounds like proper fun, eh?

There's not much information on the place in English yet, just that there are 5 trails and 62 barriers along the way. You can view the gallery at http://www.laajis.fi/seikkailupuisto/galleria/. The place is open on Tue-Fri 15-20, Sat 10-18 and Sun 12-18. There are also some special adventure nights coming up but they don't have any dates up yet. The tickets are some 20-26eur, depending on how many we are and are you renting gloves or not.

Vote for suitable times at http://www.sumpli.com/p.php?i=d4dcc21d9ace110. Feel free to suggest other options for activities and/or dates e.g. on the mailing lists or on IRC.

GC v0.39 SOPP Edition

Suuret Oluet Pienet Panimot beer festival is upon us yet again in the upcoming weekend in Helsinki. For both those who can or cannot join the celebrations in the Big Apple of Finland there is much due, traditional beer oriented GC v0.39 on Wednesday 23.7. at 18.00 in Vihreä Haltiatar. Let's raise a glass to the short but adequately warm Finnish summer.

GC v0.38 – Midweek Madness

It's time to dust off your tankards for it is time to drink beers and pontificate how everything was better when computers had to be turned on from behind. Steer your ships to port Vihreä Haltiatar on Wednesday the 4th of June at 1800 hours for merrymaking.

Introduction to Negative Testing and Security Tools at Mon 26.5 18:00-

Generally if people test, they test the happy path. What if something doesn't go as planned, though? How can you be sure the code won't explode on some boundary condition you didn't think of?

That's what negative testing, and fuzzing in particular is about. Our friend from the company who discovered Heartbleed will provide us an introduction to the topic. In addition we will have someone from the local university of applied sciences to show some security related tools and talk about OWASP.

The event will be held on Monday 26th at Hemingway's starting from 18:00. Even if you didn't make your mark to the Doodle, consider showing up. It should be a fine session and might change the way you think about testing.

Fuzzing Doodle + Codecamp and Hack geeky.la at 20.5 18:00

Have you ever heard of negative testing or wondered what fuzzing is about? How do people find those nasty vulnerabilities in software? If those questions sound something you might be interested in, go make your mark at Doodle.

In other news we're going to have two events on Tuesday 20.5 both starting at 18:00. In the first one we will be hacking geeky.la and try to learn a thing or two about design and Angular while at it. The idea is that we will turn geeky.la into something useful for local geeks and companies. The event will be held at Hemingways and there should be room even if you didn't add your name to Doodle.

In the second event held by JES you might learn to code if you don't know anything about coding yet (how likely is that?). If this is more to your liking, head to Crazy Town at 18:00. You can find more details at the Facebook entry (Finnish only).

Doodle - Hack geeky.la

We'll be arranging a little event to hack on geeky.la. It's supposed to work as a little ICT aggregator for Jyväskylä. Check Trello of the project for a better idea.

If you show up, you will likely learn something about Angular.js. It is the perfect chance to get your feet wet with the tech. We could also benefit from design talent. So if you know someone who knows something about design, try to drag the person along.

In case this sounds interesting or you don't happen to have anything better to do or just want to socialize (geeks do that?), go ahead and add your mark to Doodle.
