  • Data visualizations with ReactJS

    In the past two years, we developed interactive visualization tools in the CAP (Collaborative Analytics Platform) project. The project came to an end in late 2016. We have now created and published a demo, intertwining the different components developed in the project. We main tool that we used was the ReactJS library. The main purpose of ITEA‘s […]

  • Slush little baby

    SLUSH 2016 was held at Messukeskus, Helsinki on November 30th and December 1st, with around 17,000 attendees. Organizers had given a lot of attention to the environment, from eco-friendly waste management to the decorations made out of recycled materials.

  • HybridConf – or how to dodge the buzzword trap

    The third annual HybridConf, a web design and development event, was this time arranged in Dublin, Ireland. The two previous events have been held in Cardiff and Stockholm.

  • From a student into an employee

    June is long gone and my summer at Flo Apps is nearing its end. At first sight, not much has changed — I’m still looking at the same screen as 3 months ago.

  • Experiences of working at Flo Apps Ltd

    I began working for Flo Apps as an intern in April 2014. These past 10 months haven’t felt like an internship though because I was treated like an actual employee right from the start. I’ve gained lots and lots of experience in different techniques, tools and workflows that are important in this industry. I have […]

  • SLUSH 2014: yritteliäisyyttä ja unelmien toteuttamista

    Vuoden 2014 SLUSH-tapahtuma oli kaikin puolin onnistunut. Puitteet olivat viimeisen päälle, mobiilisovellus helpotti aikataulutusta, yhteydet toimivat hyvin, ilmaisia juomia tarjoiltiin pitkin päivää, esiintyjät olivat nimekkäitä ja inspiroivia, ja iltakemut kruunasivat pitkät päivät. Suurimman vaikutuksen teki kuitenkin tapahtuman inspiroiva, yritteliäs ja itseluottamusta henkivä ilmapiiri. Innostuminen ja epäonnistuminen ovat ok, eivät häpeä. Jos ei uskalla innostua ja […]
