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:
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.
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.
