On October 3rd Junction comes to gather local tech enthusiasts and creators for a day of hacking at Oulu with OuluES & Startuplifers! ⚡️🚀

Junction Roadtrip is a series of events hosted together by Junction and local co-hosts around Finland. The idea is to bring tech enthusiasts together for hacking and learning. The Roadtrip events include an IoT Workshop with introductory presentations by Junction and local co-hosts and the day will be closed with an epic Code Golf Tournament! This is something you don’t want to miss! 😎😎

Do you know how to code, but hardware feels hard? Even the toughest coders might not understand hardware. In this workshop participants will have the chance to build their own low-powered weather station and code it to work over the Internet. This is your chance to improve your hardware skills in a great atmosphere while learning with others!

The workshop requires participants to know the basics of C programming language. 

After the workshop, it’s time to cool down with food and drinks! Presentations will include intro to this year’s Junction as well as other interesting topics. 

Last but definitely not least, the evening will end with an epic Code Golf Tournament. In the tournament teams will solve fun coding challenges within time limits – further information TBA!
