There are going to be some agile beers available at Club Escape (Kauppakatu 22, rooftop) on 22th. If it rains, we might have to find another place. More information and updates at the meetup.

Jyväskylä Meetup Groups and Upcoming Events

A lot seems to be happening at Jyväskylä even if Geek Collision itself might not be that active. I thought it could be a good idea to highlight some coming events and meetup groups:

  • Jyväskylä WordPress Meetup - The WordPress guys have a monthly meetup. Incidentally they are meeting today (19th of April, starting from 18:00 at Sohwi)
  • Design Jyväskylä - This is a new group. They will have their starting meetup on Wednesday (20th of April, starting from 19:00 at Vihreä Haltiatar)
  • HackJKL - This is a workshop focused group. It will have its first event next Monday. It will discuss serverless architectures, particularly Amazon Lambda (Monday, 25th of April, starting from 17:00 at SC5).
  • AgileJkl Meetup Jyväskylä - This discussion focused group had its first session last week. If you want to discuss about software development in a friendly context, this is a good group to join.
  • #taskujkl - This is a monthly lunch meetup that is announced through Twitter. You can find people working on social media, marketing, software development there.
  • Expa - Expa has monthly game development related events (Expa / IGDA).
  • Jyväskylä Entrepreneurship Society (JES) - JES has monthly events related to entrepreneurship (mainly for students).

To get a good idea of what sort of events are going to happen, check out Jyväskylä ES calendar. I also maintain a Jyväskylä specific calendar with geeky events. Subscribing is the easiest way to get possible upcoming events straight to your phone/laptop/device.

Agile Coaching Camp Finland

Agile Finland will organize a coaching camp at May over a weekend (20-22). There will be an open space portion and good chances to network with software professionals across the country. 

Participating costs 350 euros and it includes accommodation, food, etc. You will still need to figure out how to get to Naantali, though. See Agile Coaching Camp Finland site for more information.

Upcoming Webpack and React Sessions

If anyone is interested in Webpack or React, I will most likely be arranging related sessions in June. Just need to figure out under which meetup to put it and how to make the timing work.

HackJKL AWS Serverless Hackathon 25.4.2016

HackJKL and SC5 invite you to Serverless Hackathon to build your first application using Serverless micro-services framework on Monday, April 25, 2016 at 5PM.

Serverless is a framework for building very lightweight micro-services using Lambda that are served over REST API. These services scale automatically based on demand. Within the hackathon, you will learn how to create a simple AWS backed web service and have the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with other participants.

Participants are expected to have a beginner level experience on AWS and JavaScript, no deep expertise required. SC5 will sponsor snacks & refreshments for the event.

Read more about the event, check the location, and send your RSVP at the meetup page: http://www.meetup.com/HackJKL/events/230011712/

We're a few odd fellows headed for drinks tomorrow Thursday 10.3. at 18.00 in Vihreä Haltiatar. Feel free to join us to for an informal geeky gathering to share a drink and epic tales of the IT life.

"SurviveJS - Webpack and React" - Book Release at SC5 - 9th of March (Wed) 16:00-18:00

As some of you might know, I've been working on a little book project known as SurviveJS. It reached a major milestone (2.0) just recently and I published the first paper version of it.

"SurviveJS - Webpack and React" teaches you to build a simple Trello style Kanban board. During the process you will learn a lot about modern web development.

You don't realize how thick the book is
if you are reading the digital edition
To commemorate this, a small release event has been arranged in collaboration with SC5. If you want to get a paper copy of the book or just want to say hi, see you at Piippukatu 7A 7 (near Dynamo) on 9th of March (Wednesday, 16:00-18:00).

You can get the book now through Amazon. There is also a digital version (pdf, epub, mobi). To get an idea of the content, you can check out the online edition. There is more information about the recent release at the release notes.

I hope you find the book useful. Perhaps we'll see at the event. Remember to register so we know how many people are coming!
