MY Camp also aims to raise awareness of the educational and working opportunities available in Finland and promoting the Millennium Technology Prize, Finland’s tribute to developers of life-enhancing technological innovations, awarded by Technology Academy Finland.

Students network with each other, with individuals in Finnish companies and organisations, and with top scientists.

    1. Dear Tamara,

      Kind regards,

  2. Not to be a complete dick, but your reotuatipn as the guy that makes games real fast is a complete joke by now. You used to be really good at cranking small, fun, games out. But now it takes months and months to get the same exact thing. The quality hasn’t improved with the extra time it takes you. Of course, things happen and there’s nothing wrong with you not being able to get stuff done due to whatever else you have going on. But seriously, every post is now something like, “hey, shit sucks, I so sad, here’s more screenies but don’t expect anything from me.” We get it, you’re going through a rough patch. Just make your games or talk about your problems, just stop with the damn whining.
