On the stage we had a short presentation where Supercell introduced Reaktor, the company who is behind the Hello World Open.
Reaktor presented The Story behind the exciting competition. Originally the company had a coding competition called Pong camp in 2012, which was so much fun that they decided to organize a national coding competition in Finland, the first Hello World Open. It was a massive success, and this year they are going global and organizing the competition together with Supercell! The original reason was to have fun and make coding sexy, as well as teach programming for children. In 2014 they also organized programming schools for kids in Finland.
Hello World Open finals are held on June 10 in Helsinki. Check out more in helloworldopen.com.
After presentations the evening continued as always with music, drinks and mingling. Dear reader, make note: the last gathering before the summer break is in June, so keep your eyes open and see you next time in Adams!
