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.
As many other people around new year I am cleaning up my endless list of to-dos. I do the closing of the year always in the same way; taking my little black notebook and checking all the year's to-do lists to check if there has been something worth revisiting or perhaps even replicating. I also check the statistics, how we're grown and what type of people we now have – this is not only a vital part of the planning process but also sort of rewarding on personal level.
We are thrilled to announce that Django Beatty has joined Exove as our UK Representative.
Django has extensive background working open solutions with some of the biggest digital businesses in the UK. This combined with our extensive experience gained working with the leading customers in the Nordics and Baltics will be a very compelling offering in the UK.
