Season's Greetings!

We wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Per tradition, we have donated all our Christmas greeting funds to a good cause, and this year our money goes to WWF.

As mentioned in our wintery image, we are also moving at the end of the year. We will stay in the same Ruoholahti region in Helsinki, as there is plenty of technology and design companies here, and our staff really likes the neighbourhood.

Our new address is Itämerenkatu 1, sixth floor. More information about our new office to follow.

Creating a business-driven, responsive Drupal site - exove.com

Exove.com new front page
As you’ve probably you noticed we launched our new web site few weeks ago. The project involved creation of a new concept, complete responsive redesign, and implementation on Drupal open-source content management system – the best tool on the planet for this purpose. Responsive design means you can now use the site with mobile, tablet and laptop/desktop browsers and it adapts automatically to your screen size. The project had various interesting aspects related to the concept, design, content, and not least to the technology behind the site, so we decided to post a series of articles to help you plan and execute similar projects. This first post talks about the web site creation process as a whole.

New Drupal module: Menuperformance

Drupal’s menu system does not scale too well. We found this out, again, during a customer project, where we were using Drupal to create a documentation site for a software product. The site has a fair amount of content. With several versions of the software and around 10 language versions of each, there are approximately 100K nodes in the node table. Each node has a menu item.

See how the Menuperformance module can help in situations like this.
