Exove has been participating in Nenäpäivä - globally known as Comic Relief - charity event for two years now. Our role has been to design and implement www.nenäpäivä.fi site to both create the awareness for the big day, and also to collect money through volunteer teams.
The big day was on Friday, and the event collected almost three million euros. Of those, 255 940 euros were collected by the teams using the site that is, by the way, powered by Drupal and Drupal Commerce.
The slides of last week's Drupal Café are now available on our SlideShare channel and also embedded below.
Yesterday the business leaders of Finnish Drupal companies met at the first Finnish Drupal CXO event.
Participants included most of the Finnish Drupal vendors, a couple companies that provide services to Drupal vendors, and a content management expert company. We discussed on topical business items using open space methodology and agreed on actions to grow the business potential of Drupal in Finland.
Follow-ups will be handled by the companies and Finnish Drupal association. Stay tuned.

The upcomings weeks are busy for Finns interested in Drupal.
First and foremost, DrupalCon Prague kicks off on Monday September 23rd and continues the whole week. I am the track chair for Business & Strategy track and we have a good line-up of Finnish and Nordic speakers, including also a couple from Exove. I'm also truly proud that Exove is a platinum sponsor of the event. For more information, we've prepared a special DrupalCon page about Exove at the event. And do pop over to our booth #38.
High performance sites are hard to build with Drupal and in a number of cases Drupal's own page caching does not give enough boost. Exove has been working for years with all kinds of sites with extremely high performance requirements. We have developed a number of strategies and using external caching has proved out to be one of the most efficient ones.
Software auditing is a delicate matter. Normally, the customer of the audit owns the code. It makes it pretty simple. Even though the programmers might have an emotional relationship with the code, they usually can hold that back as long as they’re fully aware of who the actual owner of the code is. It’s not at all fun to get your work and your decisions scrutinized even then, but it’s understandable.
DrupalCamp Baltics 2013 was a real blast. Really good topics, great presenters, a lot of networking, and loads of fun! It is good to see Drupal community growing in Estonia and the other Baltic states.
We had two sessions at the camp, and as usual, we have published the slides on our Slideshare page.
Kalle Varisvirta, our Technology Director, talked about Auditing Drupal Sites. This session will be heard in an amended format at DrupalCon in Prague.
