I found aout about this hackathon and stepped by. Someone is trying to make a community around apis in Finland. Check out www.apisuomi.fi

Also in here is a guid to APIs in Finnish:

APIs simplify all that by limiting outside program access to a specific set of features—often enough, requests for data of one sort or another. Feel free to think of them as doors, windows or levers if you like.

Also kauppalehti.fi introduced its APIs.

Book Suggestion:

What api can I make for onfinland?

 

Networking

Met some IT graduate guys, one working on Grail, one on .NET one was a security analyst.

Suggestions: 1. Javascript, can’t be wrong. 2. Take the security course. 3. learn version control. 4. learn jira or ticketing system.

 

Installed, Node.js, Json formatter, among other things.

 

Git Commands

git clone http——

 

git pull

git push

Gitflow, interesting batch commands

 

We also used an API to return the closest restaurant in finland, using node.js, angular.js. Here is its github repo.
