Koodipolku Intro

  1. 1. Koodipolku intro Teemu Frisk 22.6.2016 Clojure Finland Meetup @ Siili
  2. 2. My backgroud 10+ years of exp in many positions such as engineer, tester, tech support, pm, consultant, devops, etc. Now at Pandia automating everything and making our developers life easier → will benefit our customers as well.
  3. 3. Koodipolku What is Koodipolku? Good question. First we have to ask some other questions..
  4. 4. Let's start with why? I care about.. Empowering people and driving equality. People should have the tools and means to express themselves.
  5. 5. Let's start with why? Nothing good ever comes out when only white dudebros gather. Diversity is a good thing. Let's face it; if you attend these kind of tech meetups you are propably more or less privileged.
  6. 6. How? Rails Girls started the code school movement in 2010. Many others appeared ClojureBridge Finland has arranged 4 events since 2015. Linda Liukas wrote her Hello Ruby book. Dads are teaching coding to their kids. Coding is coming to schools soon. Programming is no longer only for programmers.
  7. 7. How? Coding events are very popular and places are sold out quickly. People are generally satisfied by the events but often want more than we can give afterwards. Continuity is a major hurdle → I want to help here.
  8. 8. What is Koodipolku? Initiative for building a community around different code school groups. Project intro site is at I am looking for passionate people who care about the cause. Coding skills are not required. No IT experience is required.
  9. 9. Feedback and discussion Project site has a feedback form. Any feedback is welcome. If you know a suitable person, please share.
