Tech Excellence Finland

The amount of software professionals doubles every five years. That means that half of us are with less than five years of experience. It’s time to take Agile Finland community members back to technical roots by kicking off a new pod (self-organized unit) on tech excellence. This group remembers the new without forgetting the seasoned ones.
