Sakari Poussa is a software architect at Intel's Open Source Technology in Espoo (Finland). His main areas of interest are Web technologies and especially Web APIs. He is one of the lead architects of the Crosswalk application runtime.
Francesco Balestrieri is a program manager at Intel's Open Source Technology in Espoo (Finland). He is currently working on a port of Tizen Mobile for Intel-based mobile devices, and on the Crosswalk application runtime. In the past he was at Nokia, working on various projects in the area of mobile communications.
Tizen is an open source, standards-based software platform supported by leading mobile operators, device manufacturers, and silicon suppliers for multiple device categories such as smartphones, tablets, netbooks, in-vehicle infotainment devices, and smart TVs. Tizen offers an innovative operating system, applications, and a user experience that consumers can take from device to device. In this presentation we will go through the features of Tizen, with particular focus on Tizen Mobile and the Tizen SDK. More information: click here.
Double Take - Cycles Materials and 3D Printing with Blender.
Blender's new Cycles renderer is a versatile and powerful tool, and its node-based material management system allows for realistic materials. Let's have a look at how to create a graffiti-lined wall for a hospital scene. In the second half of the show, we look at 3D Printing and see the entire process from idea to a physical 3D printed object.

Iiro Uusitalo (@iiuusit) started hacking with Linux when he was 12 years old, and four years later he founded his first company which heavily used Linux. After years of searching he found his new family Solita Oy (http://www.solita.fi) and gave his heart to the DevOps. Iiro is now automating infrastructure setups for customers.
On this session we check the ways how you can start hacking on different levels of cloud layers. Use OpenStack to familiarize yourself on how cloud internals do work, see how to get involved into developing the cloud engines, and learn how to develop and optimize your applications. Develop into cloud in your own cloud lab, and make your service compatible for the real deal.

With sensors, your gadgets can detect anything from heat to dangerous gases. Learn how you can easily build gadgets that react to environment. Tero has authored multiple books about Arduino and robots. With "Make: Arduino Bots", you can design and build your first gadget in a week. Upcoming books help your bots sense more: "Getting Started with Sensors" and "Make: Sensors".

Allan has been a teacher in Kauniainen since 2003. Alongside with his teaching work he has been actively involved the development of a more student-centric and holistic education and school. He has been the leader of the national Dream School project from its conception in 2008.
Currently there are 30 schools that implement the concept all across Finland.
He is a also a co-founder of the Dream&Hope association, which is a Finnish non-profit association that promotes user centered operation models, solutions for student centred learning and student wellbeing in schools.
Allan was rewarded with the Open World Hero - title for his contributions to and proactive work in Dream School project. He has been a visionary thinker and a forerunner in introducing open source solutions to the public sector. Allan has been an inspiration for people and entities disseminating the use of open ICT.
Kasavuori School in the city of Kauniainen near Helsinki initiated the Dream School development process. The aim was to create an engaging and ubiquitous learning environment to support the learners' growth and learning. It is a holistic approach that integrates the pedagogy and the technology that supports it. The concept and services are designed by progressive educators with learners' needs in mind. The collaboratively designed technology used is essentially open source based.
The ubiquitous Dream School ICT tools and services are a part of the everyday life at school and provide invaluable support for learning. These cost effective and easy to use tools ensure equal access to quality education.
The first international pilots are ongoing.

Sending stuff in space is something many university students can only dream of. In Espoo junior high students do it. Espoo Christian School students are going to grow a fungus in space during the first half of 2014 in co-operation with Valley Christian Schools (San Jose, Silicon Valley) and NASA. A fungus spore will be planted by a robot in space during the flight. The spore will be watered and observed by a robot in a MicroLab designed and programmed by junior high students. The MicroLab prototype has passed the tests in Silicon Valley, and the production MicroLab is being built. Now you probably have some questions. Come to Happy Hacking Day and you will get answers!
RuuviTracker is an open-source, electronic global positioning device as well as free software. Our GSM- and GPS/GLONASS/Galileo-enabled tracking system can be used for various different tasks. For example, it can be used to track your hunting dog, it can become your vehicle's alarm system, a portable weather station, a security system for your children, a logger or anything you can make out a use case for it. It's all about your imagination!
The device itself will be an affordable, water-proof, robust, high-quality and state-of-the-art product. It will run at temperatures as low as -40°C (-40°F) and if equipped with expansion boards it can transform into almost anything. Additional expansion modules are not needed on most cases, because there's so much functionality embedded on our motherboard itself.
We have, for example: 168MHz ARM Cortex-M4, GSM, GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, accelerometer, microSD, microphone, speaker etc. The device draws only few microamps during sleep, so even a small battery might last for several years. Additionally, our accelerometer is able to wake-up the device when it's touched. Cool, huh?
End-users are able to modify the behaviour of the device using a simple and easy-to-learn scripting language. No special programming tools or knowledge required!
