Graduating With Style

Celebrations!

We have this tradition in Sweden where graduating high school students are driven around on the backs of large trucks together with their classmates. One last celebration before they move on with their lives. That’s today. It’s loud. It’s fun. There’s a long procession of trucks, driving all over town, and you can hear them pretty much a mile away. They’re usually equipped with some serious sound systems, pumping out party music. A calm, quiet celebration it most definitely is not.

This year, we worked with some of the local students, helping them get a really kick-ass graduation. Being geeks ourselves, naturally we went for the computer science graduates, the future IT gurus of their generation. Being the best and brightest, they should be able to graduate with style, right?

So now they’re riding around on the back of a big truck complete with driver, corresponding decorations (including a tribute to the King of Geeks, Sheldon), a massive speaker system and the hottest DJ in town, Amin.

Turns out IT guys are a lot more popular than you might think. Just check out the images below from today’s ongoing celebrations:

Once again, guys, congratulations on graduating! We’d wish you luck, but you don’t need it. You have a bright future ahead of you.

Keep on hacking. Hope you enjoyed the ride!

P.S. Want to get in touch with these guys? Since you probably weren’t on location to try the QR code we sneaked onto the truck (a cookie if you spot it), here they are.

P.P.S. Here is a set on Flickr with the high-resolution versions of these photos.
