We are ten years old! Time flies when you're having fun. We had our ten year birthday party in Korjaamo in Helsinki on Friday and as I've now recovered from the festivities, I'll share a few notes of our short and intense history as a company.
Back in 2006, I, Thomas Enholm and Petteri Koponen got together and discussed about founding a web consulting company that would focus on implementing complex and versatile web applications. It was web 2.0 craze then and we were in that bandwagon, too.
Digitalization is the path an increasing number of traditional businesses are taking these days. But nobody really defines what it means. Usually it means that some, even most of the processes are moved from the physical world to the digital one. Some parts of customer interaction, for instance, are moved online.
I started at Exove in May 2015 as a part of the annual Trainee Program. I want to share my thoughts about how it all worked out for me.
Having had some prior experience with web development I came in expecting to be using just the same old technologies and to maybe have a somewhat boring summer. I was mistaken, within my first weeks I was working with technologies that I had only studied but never really had the opportunity to use. My coworkers have always been good for a laugh and if my summer was one thing it was not boring!
Exove won "The Best New Partner" and "The Best Blogger" awards in eZ Systems conference in New York on 5th November 2015. In all, three of nine awards went to Finland.
This year's DrupalCamp Baltics was held yesterday in Tallinn, Estonia. Exove had the opportunity to be both a co-organiser and gold sponsor for the camp, and I was part of the organising committee.
Planning started already early this year when the leaders of Estonian Drupal companies - me from Exove, Ivo Nellis from Fenomen, and Merle Randlepp from Wunderkraut - got together to discuss the date and the location of the camp. We soon invited also Toomas Pippar from Mild Creative to work on the brand and visuals for the camp - and thanks to Toomas, the camp was top-notch visually.

We have been selected to speak in several events in the autumn - and we are also sponsoring a few of them. It is always a true pleasure to join and support open technology events.
We work extensively with open technologies, such as Drupal, WordPress, Node.js, Symfony, etc. We truly believe that open source is the best way for us to serve our customers, as it combines excellent quality, fast innovation, lower costs, and possibilities to tinker with the platform.
I've recently been fortunate enough to be invited to talk about open source goodness in various events. Yesterday I was in ICT Expo in Helsinki presenting my thoughts of why and how open source works better than closed systems.
Raymond, the customer magazine published by RAY – Finland's Slot Machine Association – has been awarded with three prices in two competitions late yesterday evening.
Raymond.fi won The Digital Solution of the Year and The Article of the Year in Customer Magazine in Edit, and The Best Design in Grand One 2015.
I'm glad and also a bit proud to announce that we have been nominated as one of Finland's best places to work.
Vallitsevasta taloustilanteesta huolimatta Exoven kasvu jatkuu. Yritys on avannut helmikuun alussa toimipisteen Tampereelle Factory Klingendahliin. Tällä hetkellä työtä tehdään Tampereella kahden henkilön voimin, mutta tulevaisuudessa toimipisteen uskotaan kasvavan.
