Time to market is more critical than in-house engineering
What is near-sourcing? How to start a development project fast without in-house engineers? Why run an on-site discovery workshop? We'll elaborate on these questions further. Today Finland, Sweden, and Norway experience a massive demand for all engineering disciplines. Government figures show that at least 650,000 people work in ICT, rising all the time. As technology becomes more integrated into our daily lives, the need for software, hardware, web, and embedded developers grows across the Nordic region. In addition to this equation, some available resources unfortunately only have experience with old obsolete or unfit technologies or tools - with a need for an immediate update, like with, i.e. Python 2, which is officially sunset by Python.org on January 1, 2020. Recruiting new skills is a time-consuming process. Finding the person with adequate competencies and being a match with the team is not easy. From the perspective of the result, it is often more important to bring the new service or product early to the market than have a particular skill in-house.

How to make a cheerful and meaningful company's remote birthday celebration
This year we celebrate the 10th anniversary. In the first scenario, we planned a huge party with invitations for clients, partners, allies, and the team, of course. Pandemia and lockdown revised our bold plans for an extraordinary event. We’ve thought we could meet only with teammates, but even that option was too risky. Even in reality, before severe isolation, organizing an exciting event for +55 people that some of them live abroad, is challenging. We work every day on being aware of everyone's concerns, current restrictions, state of health, and well-being. We canceled the offline event with the shared decision and rethought how else we could celebrate this occasion.

Everyone's an Expert - do your job and stay sane
Some jobs, positions or work fields must deal with a specific problem - they can be very difficult and hard to master, but they rely more on soft skills than hard ones.

Creating a JavaScript game can be fun!
When I got a job as a frontend developer in DO OK, I never thought that I’d create a game. Of course, I expected to learn a lot about React, Javascript or teamwork, but how could I know that a bit of free time and a crazy idea would be transformed into DOOKTOPUS?
