This month our company celebrated its 8th birthday. We had such an amazing time together! The celebration lasted for two days - May 30th and 31st. For the first day we had planned two trips – a rafting one and a hiking one, and the second day we spent at the Shepilska resort. Thanks to all who came to share this wonderful time with us!
You can check out all the photos and videos from both days at 
"\\\incoming\ABTO 2015 Company Days".


Last month at one of the TechTalks we had an amazing opportunity to listen to Jenny Hughes who works as a Senior Web Producer at the game development and publishing giant Ubisoft Entertainment. Jenny gave us some insights into the process of preparation and launching of global web campaigns for Ubisoft's new titles. We hope your liked Jenny's talk and will try to bring more interesting guests to our TeckTalks.


Almost everyone plays video games at home. Well, good news, everyone: now you can play games at work, too!
We've set up an old PC with an old NES emulator and a ton of old games (no, really, Bomberman is cool, but there are more games there). So grab your buddy, your gamepad, and show off your old-school gaming skills! We could even do a small tournament this Friday.
Meanwhile, we would like to once again encourage you to come and talk about your work, your project here at ABTO, and really just about anything you'd like to share with colleagues.


This May we have officially become a Microsoft Silver Partner. We hope that the Silver Partner status will send out a reassuring message for our existing and future customers and give a clear vision of what level of service they can expect. For us partnership means free MS software licenses and subscriptions, firsthand access to the latest MS products and many other perks. Becoming a member of MPN is a huge accomplishment for our company. It took a lot of time and efforts, and we want to thank those of you who has helped us in this long journey. Now, with all the experience that the company has acquired over the years, we are pretty sure that the Gold status is just around the corner.


We like to challenge our minds and bodies, and sometimes – to extreme levels. That's why almost a dozen of our employees signed up for one of the toughest races held yearly in the Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains (and in the whole Eastern Europe) – the Gorgany Race. During the 27-28 of June, the runners, split up into teams of 2 to 4, in under 24 hours will have to cover 60 km through the Gorgany, one of the wildest and most uninhabited areas of the Carpathians.
We wish the best of luck to our racers and hope that their spirit, their stamina and their trekking shoes will stand up to this ultimate endurance challenge!
That’s it for today. Thanks for reading!
