Since some people using N9 with Harmattan might also be interested in trying out HeliumReborn, I grabbed the latest sources from its Github repository, and packaged it for Harmattan. HeliumReborn 1.1.3 debian package is downloadable from here.
CIO of Jolla was present. He gave a short presentation of what the company is about and answered questions from the audience. There was also presentations from Mer and Nemo Mobile contributors (many of them work nowadays at Jolla).
I did a presentation about getting started in development. Here are my slides:
I did not get a lot of feedback on how the presentation went. I guess it was more or less ok. I do think that I could've done a better job, if I had presented with my own computer. However, I'm not having a laptop at the moment, so I had to use somebody else's laptop for presentation. Anyway, I had many interesting discussions with many people after the presentation part of the day was over.
It was a really nice event and I had a good time. Big thanks to Devaamo people for arranging the event and for all the presentators and attendees.
When Jolla announced in public that they are recruiting I quickly realized that Jolla offered almost everything I was looking for. It is a cool company, it works with interesting technologies, and builds its own product. They have great team, and the company offers possibility to stay in Tampere. Also, as bonus I already knew many of the cool people already working at Jolla. I made the obvious choice and applied. Luckily, everything went well and I got the job.
Tomorrow will be my first working day at Jolla.
