Those who worked at Uptime for 5 years or more grabbed the wheel and oriented in the forests of Aegviidu

This time 5+ developers went on an off-road trip with UAZ cars. This adventure can also be called a good teamwork exercise, because it is necessary to plan your journey wisely when taking checkpoints.

Summertime: Uptime held summer days by the sea

This year, the Summertime flag was hoisted at Ojako Recreation Centre in Pärnu County, where more people had arrived from the Estonian offices for the Uptime summer days than ever before.

2020 is a different year, because even employees in the same office have seen each other much less often than usual. So, there was even more reason to come together and see those who have worked at home for a long time. The summer days took place as they have been for years – with beautiful sunny weather and plenty of people. Although there were more participants from Estonian offices than ever before, this time, unfortunately, Uptime’s Norwegian, Danish, Swiss and Polish offices could not participate due to travel restrictions.

How Uptime beat home office boredom during this emergency period

As the coronavirus emergency situation had kept us all in our home offices for several months, gradually everyone started to get bored and wanted a chance to get out of the room. To keep the spirit of the Uptime team fresh, we decided to get people out of the house following the 2+2 rule and sent them to explore Tallinn at the weekend. We created an orienteering application which guided users to the coordinates of various checkpoints at exciting places in both Tallinn’s city center and the Old Town.More

The crisis is a good time to consolidate

The crisis is a good time to accelerate changes that are already under way and pushes us to do things that could have been postponed in good times.

Consolidation has been going on in both the Estonian and European markets for some time, but the crisis could give it an even stronger impetus.

The coronavirus crisis that began with the coronavirus epidemic has affected all sectors of the economy – some more than others. The impact in the software development sector has certainly already been felt quite strongly, and its effect will intensify in the coming months. However, software companies are definitely most affected by customers’ uncertainty about making investments.
