The Friday Wrap-Up

    It’s time for the Friday wrap-up, and Antti Vilpponen and I are in Tallinn for the Latitude59 conference. Antti got a chance to speak to Urmas Purde from Pipedrive (above) and the whole event has been interesting and inspiring. Expect a followup on Monday. As always, we’ve got more news, jobs, and events for you to attend. Quick plug: Be sure to come to ArcticEvening Helsinki on the 14th!

    Tripbirds is apparently pivoting. They’re shutting down the site and relaunching in a couple weeks. ArcticStartup will have you covered with whatever they come up with.

    ZeroTurnaround released a Developer Productivity Report of what developers use and what keeps them happy. It’s really well put together, so check it out.
