Hello World Coding Championships

Sign up for the first ever Coding World Championships

This Spring, get to know the future superstars behind the code: Hello World Open challenges the top coders to defend their countries’ honour in the first ever Coding World Championships.

Organised by the creative technology company Reaktor and the mobile game developer Supercell, Hello World Open brings programming skills into the global spotlight in a context we might not be used to. First, hopeful contenders must form teams of 1-3 top coders. With the best talent in place, each teams’ challenge is to create an artificial intelligence for a virtual car race. Sign up starts March 31st.

“By simplifying a hard-to-grasp concept such as coding, we want to make coding sexy and take it to a level where the general public can enjoy it too”, says Reaktor’s Ville Valtonen, the main organiser of Hello World Open. “Our aim is to create the Sebastian Vettels and Jeff Gordons of coding — true national superheroes worth looking up to. We want the audience to take pride in their own countries’ competitors and to cheer them on to victory.” Watch our video interview with Ville Valtonen.

The finals will take place in Helsinki on June 5th at the Cable Factory. Before the event, Supercell will hold its second annual gaming summit earlier that day. Full Details Here – Start Your Engines!

Update April 15th
Reporting over 3,000 developers, with +2,000 teams, sign-up deadline extended to April 22nd.

MoMo Helsinki – Nov. 5th – Looking for Neogrowth

MobileMonday Helsinki wants to invite you to the next event themed

Looking for Neogrowth – new ways of thinking and doing

The aim of the event is to open your minds for new opportunities and thinking models that can be applied in the work environment and also in the daily-life.  For instance, when thinking about new ways to increase productivity, we might consider information technology as an easy-solution but we often ignore the harmful consequences such as stress and overwork that it can create to the end-users. The reason for that is the fact that it is difficult to learn away from old ways of thinking and doing.

Since we think that neogrowth provides great opportunites that can make Finland prosper again, we want to share the views of the most inspiring thinkers and doers:

Mika Hyötyläinen, Senior Marketing Manager at TeliaSonera, will clarify how we can understand better the ICT service productivity

Marko Siivonen, CEO of Spinacor, will explain how sensomotoric coaching helps to map the working condition and capacity of an individual

Mikko Laukkanen, Head of Thought Leadership at Aalto Executive Education, will discuss about the challenges and reasons of failures behind business innovations

The MC of the event will be Andy Clutterbuck, Coach for Aalto Design Factory. This time the event will be organized in a new location at Korjaamon Vintti, Töölönkatu 51.


Doors open 18:00
Program 18:30-19:30
Networking and informal discussion 19:30-20:30

As you are well aware, mobile content is becoming a leading medium of communication world-wide. While the numbers of different handset mobile game developers increases in response to demand, fragmentation is once again becoming one of the main problems of mobile game development. Will HTML5 be a solution for this?

12:30-14:30 Session 2: Mobile cloud reconnecting telcos to mobile value chain?

After playing a dominant role in the first phase of mobile game development, the influence of telecommunication companies faded, following the rise of the iPhone. However, telecommunication companies still have a direct access to millions of potential gamers. How could game developers and telecommunication operators co-operate, and could the mobile cloud be the answer to exploiting this relatively unexplored route to access users?

The massive rise of mobile gaming has given rise to possible investments in the game industry. In Finland, 1500 people who work in gaming were able to attract 67 Million of venture capital alone. Why is this happening and what are the investors looking to gain from Finland?
