When studying my degree in Business Information Systems with a specialization in Game Development, I always assumed I would eventually work in a game company. Or at least that I would work with games in some capacity, be they digital or not. It seemed like the only logical choice given my specialization.
Team Intopalo won the Autonomous Vessel with Rolls-Royce Industryhack challenge. Read our previous post here. Here are our tips on how you can win a similar hackathon. 1. Form a diverse team You don’t know what’s going to happen at the hackathon and what the client values. To prepare for the unexpected, choose people who have complementary skills, who work well together and can improvise. We formed a team that could concept, design and build a technology demo within hours.

On November 23rd, Intopalo hosted a VR Afterwork happening at our headquarters in Hermia, Tampere. The place was packed with about 17 virtual reality enthusiasts - it really was great fun!
Thank you for visiting the Intopalo stand at Sähkötalo last Wednesday. Our experts demonstrated this time Intopalo’s VR training demo and some of our internal research in the machine learning field. It is always a pleasure to share our excitement with same-minded people!
Training new employees can be expensive. For one, it takes time; not only from the people involved in the training, but possibly also from co-workers whose work may be interrupted by the new employees familiarizing themselves with the work environment. This is especially true with production lines, where the entire production process could be halted - leading into loss of efficiency and more expenses. In other words, time is money.
