I am a foreign student here in Oulu, and I am pretty sure that the scores should be updated. Such as Internet connection here is great, 60-100mbs at my workplace. The city is bike friendly and foreign friendly, much better than the east and the south part of Finland. The city is promoting startups and improving environment toward internationalisation, so the future is bright and worthy.
There is not much nightlife activities to do besides drinking and dancing, but in the summer you can do sports as it is never dark. I love the pier and city library, and this is the most famous area in Oulu where you can find many interesting events like the Polar Bear Pitch, Farmer's Market, MegaMatching, etc. Besides being called the Silicon Valley of Finland, Oulu is also a heaven to outdoor lovers with many trail paths as well as their campfires and saunas along the rivers and lakes.
To me Oulu is perfect for Nomads who are up to challenges.
A lot more things to do there on Summer than on Winter, even though the city is beautiful both seasons. Wouldn't recommend going there in the beginning of spring or late autumn since it'd be mostly rainy and cold. On Summer I recommend just walking around the city and checking out all the architecture and drinking beer on the beach of Hietalahti or taking a ferry to Suomenlinna and having a picnic day there. Linnanmäki amusement park is also nice if you are traveling with children. On Winter I recommend you leave the city center and go to f.ex. Mustikkamaa or Central Park. There are places where you can ice skate.
