v0.4.1 - Node.js (change of location)

I'm happy to announce that we have confirmed the location and time for the next Geek collision, which is 28.06.2011 18:00. And as I already informed the presentation will be about Node.js which is part of the future of server side JavaScript by Esa-Matti "Epeli" Suuronen and we are generously hosted by Jaakko Vallo alias jazzu from Oikotie Oy in Oikotie Oy offices which are located in Survontie 9 just in Ylistönrinne, at the Technopolis end of the building.

Since we had a change of the event location I'm sad to say, but the steamy style of the event won't continue. You can still bring your own snacks and drinks along.

This time we might have to limit the attendance so that only the first 20 will be able to attend, so register soon: http://www.doodle.com/25ybd7a68wdya26s.

P.S. If you have problems finding the place or are arriving late call my cell +358445815816. See you there!

Geek collision is calling geeks to arms to find us a place for our next 28.6.2011 meet!

Hello my fellow geeks!

As we have stumbled on a bit of a hassle with our next events location policy, I'm pleading all of you who are interested in coming to Geek collision to consider if you would be able to host us. As we are organising an event just because we're interested in learning and sharing information for free, we also want the event to be as accessible as possible, so keeping it free is important.

Our needs are pretty basic, a room that fits about 20 people and has a projector. If you provide such a place and would be willing to host us, you'd make me and others that attend to this event very happy. We'll of course mention you on the blog and you'd get good name in the local geek community.

So, if you would be so kind and like to host us, please inform me at tarmo@geekcollision.org ASAP.

v0.4 - Node.js and sauna, 28.06.2011 18:00

Summery hello to all you geeks!

I'm happy to announce that we have confirmed the location and time for the next Geek collision, which is 28.06.2011 18:00. And as I already informed the presentation will be about Node.js which is part of the future of server side JavaScript by Esa-Matti "Epeli" Suuronen and we are again generously hosted by Jukka Raimovaara alias xdanger from Mentalhouse Oy and TNNet in TNNet offices which are located in Kauppakatu 32 which is just behind Hemingways.

The steamy style of the event will continue since there's also a sauna possibility and as I expect all of you are good hitchhikers and have towel with you as always, I'm not even going to mention that you should bring one along. You should also bring your own drinks along.

This time we might have to limit the attendance so that only the first 20 will be able to attend, so register soon: http://www.doodle.com/25ybd7a68wdya26s.

P.S. The door which you are coming in has a TNNet sticker and there's a door bell which says: "Kokoushuone", buzz that to get in. If you have problems finding the place or are arriving late call my cell +358445815816. See you there!

Another event down, next is coming

Yesterdays event was just awesome. We talked about a lot about web technologies. Experienced the cool HTML 5 Canvas presentation by Juho Vepsäläinen for which you can find slides from his blog http://nixtu.blogspot.com/2011/06/presentation-intro-to-html5-canvas.html. Thank you Juho!

After the presentation we continued the discussions in the sauna about what is the appropriate language to teach programming where Python as well as JavaScript got a lot of votes. I don't know if we actually reached conclusion but at least good conversation came about. Sauna, game development, WebGL, CoffeeScript, Server side JavaScript and other subjects kept some of us up until late and gave us new ideas for presentations and sessions.

The next event will be in two weeks and the presentation will be about Node.js by Esa-Matti "Epeli" Suuronen and hopefully we can arrange it in the TNNet premises which were just perfect.

Thanks Jukka Raimovaara and TNNet for hosting us and thank you geeks for attending. Next time bring your friends with you!

Geek collision 0.3v is on Tuesday 14.06.2011 at 18.00 in Kauppakatu 32 (behind Hemingways)

Hello, hello!

I've been a bit busy so I didn't really blog about the last event, but it's already old news so let's concentrate on the new and upcoming event. In the next event Juho Vepsäläinen alias bebraw is going to give us an hour long presentation about HTML 5 Canvas element. We have changed venue and are generously hosted by Jukka Raimovaara alias xdanger from Mentalhouse Oy and TNNet in TNNet offices which are located in Kauppakatu 32 which is just behind Hemingways.

The event might be also steamier than usually since there's also a sauna possibility and as I expect all of you are good hitchhikers and have towel with you as always, I'm not even going to mention that you should bring one along.

Oh yeah and remember to tell me if you're coming: http://www.doodle.com/e4vug4d829fv2nfd.

Since the office is behind locked doors somebody is going to need to open the door, so you can call my cell +358445815816 if you arrive late. See you there!
