Vincit Roadshow, Nov 26 at 11-12, ICT Lecture Room Alpha http://soft.utu.fi/blog/2012/11/12/vincit-roadshow-nov-26-at-11-12-ict-lecture-room-alpha/ http://soft.utu.fi/blog/2012/11/12/vincit-roadshow-nov-26-at-11-12-ict-lecture-room-alpha/#comments Mon, 12 Nov 2012 12:28:47 +0000 jjholv http://soft.utu.fi/?p=475 As part of Vincit Oy's roadshow tour in Turku on Monday Nov 26 at 11-12 (lecture room Alpha), we have a guest lecture by Vincit Oy:

        Can a software project succeed?

According to Standish group, 67% of software projects fail. We challenge traditional metrics for success and present practical tools for achieving better software projects. We also show how a project which is late by a year can be highly successful - and why the movie Titanic was a complete failure!

Quest speakers

MSc Jarkko Järvenpää: Jarkko has been selling software projects using wrong criteria for many years. That is more features, faster and cheaper. After moving to Vincit he now thinks he has got it right. Currently Jarkko is responsible for sales & marketing at Vincit.

MSc Pasi Kovanen: Pasi has been laid off twice from a software company due to bankruptcy. Now Pasi heads Vincit's customer projects.

Vincit Oy is a passionate software company which was founded on 2007 to deliver challenging software projects in an agile way. Today it has delivered more than 190 successful software projects - and four failed ones. Main competence areas are information systems, embedded software and mobile applications. Vincit is Great Place to Work 2012 finalist and Tietoviikko magazine's company of the year 2012. More information: www.vincit.fi

Welcome all!

Windows Phone 7 Hackathon and Codecamp (5 ECTS) http://soft.utu.fi/blog/2012/01/09/codecamp-windows-phone-7/ http://soft.utu.fi/blog/2012/01/09/codecamp-windows-phone-7/#comments Mon, 09 Jan 2012 12:21:22 +0000 Tuomas Mäkilä http://soft.utu.fi/?p=415

ICT-portti and University of Turku offer a series of practice-oriented learning events focusing on building mobile applications on the Windows Phone 7.5 platform. The series is implemented in close collaboration with Microsoft Finland Oy, Microsoft Student Tech Club Turku and Turun AMK. Windows Phone 7 is an emerging mobile platform from Microsoft. The platform will be dominant platform in the Nokia smartphones and therefore its importance in Finnish software scene is rising rapidly.

During the events, students are familiarized with the Windows Phone platform development and the most essential development tools. As a result of the event series, students are expected to create a working application which is published in the WP Marketplace. The event series consists of three separate events: 1) Windows Phone Hackathon, 2) Windows Phone Codecamp, and 3) participation to the Microsoft Imagine Cup. The student teams work on a project, which will be submitted to the Imagine Cup, during the Hackathon and the Codecamp events, and between them if necessary.

The Hackathon was be held February 18th – 19th 2012 and the Codecamp will be held March 13th – 19th 2012. The deadline for the Imagine Cup is March 13th 2012. Please see the detailed schedule at the end of the post.

A student can credit the course Special Course in Software Engineering: Mobile Application Development or another corresponding course. The series is open for the students of University of Turku, Åbo Akademi University, and Turun ammattikorkeakoulu. Students, who participated in the previous codecamps (Codecamp: Vaadin & Social Media and Codecamp: ASP.NET MVC & jQuery) can also take part to this Codecamp.The participation of the Hackathon and the Codecamp events, successful completion of the programming project, and submission to the first phase of the Imagine Cup competition is required to complete the course.

Hackathon is an event when programmers meet to do collaborative computer programming. The spirit of a hackathon is to collaboratively build programs and applications. A hackathon refers not simply to one time hacks, but to a specific time when many people come together to hack on what they want to, how they want to - with little to no restrictions on direction or goal of the programming.“
– The definition of Hackathon @ wikipedia

Code Camp is learning and hacking experience. The code camp approach can be defined as a collaborative learning setting that aims to promote profession-oriented skills. In code camp, the term ‘camp’ refers to a situation where students assemble and stay a while together. The term ‘code’ refers to coding, i.e. writing computer programs. During a code camp, students write programs together, solve problems related to their work together, eat together and even might relax together in a sauna.“
– The definition of Code Camp @ codecamp.fi

Hackathon is a intensive 24h event where the preliminaries for the Windows Phone platform are learned through tutorial lectures and intensive group work. Codecamp is a one-week intensive course. The first day contains lectures and hands-on tutorials. The next three days contain intensive work as groups implementing the application projects, with the assistance of Windows Phone experts from Microsoft, Avenade and Ecom. The projects are demonstrated and evaluated during the last day of the codecamp. The completed projects are submitted to the Microsoft Imagine Cup by the student groups. Hackathon is suitable for everyone interested in the topic, Codecamp requires preliminary knowledge on programming and software development.

Enroll before the February 13th through the Hackathon homepage (Press "Register" and fill your information. Remember to select that you participate both "Hackathon + Codecamp".). The number of participants is limited. Enrollment closed.
