let's do great things together


Hello.

We are a global agency with a focus on software development, Linux operations and solutions for the web. Let us help you build your next product.

services

these are the pillars of our work

Software
Craftsmanship

You have an awesome idea and you want to captivate your customers with an app? We are happy to develop something new with you!

Operations

We'd be glad to help with your Linux servers: whether you want us to manage your servers on-premises or in the cloud ... or perhaps just a one shot task?

consulting

IT Solutions

Perhaps you are planning a big project or you need components to integrate in a better way? We'd love to be part of the solution!

Development

Writing software is our main business. We are proud about our products and we are intrigued with new problems to solve. We compiled a small list of examples from the past and from the future:

Integrating

Often, the tools are already there and they are doing their job. Now, it would be great if they could also talk to each other: For example, it'd be extremely cool if your CMS could directly talk to your recruiting platform, no? That would allow you to define processes across tools!

This is also the first step we always take: We have a close look on what your current situation is. Perhaps little change is required!

Extending

Is there a key functionality missing from a tool you love? Let's see if we can add a module / extention / theme / skin / plug-in.

Should your product require expertise beyond our own (e.g. design or wording), we might have to contract third parties. Of course we will only do this with your consent and we will always be responsible for what they deliver to you.

Inventing

There is no tool that does what you want? You will launch a Start-Up and your product includes an App? Let us develop an information system together that will blow their mind!

Operations

Linux is a sweet platform with many applications, specifically on a server. In times of micro-services, development and operations grow closer and allow for great end user experience.

On-Premises

If you are operating Linux servers in-house and you would like to free yourself of the duty to upgrade, monitor and make sure that they are humming in concert: Let us know! All tools we are using can either be deployed at your site or in the cloud.

This is also the first step we always take: We have a close look on what your current situation is. Perhaps little change is required!

Cloud

On some T-Shirts you can read: There is no cloud, its just somebody else's computer For your projects, that computer can belong to us, Hetzner or Amazon: We are happy to run your apps wherever you like, just let us know.

Automation

We are convinced that it is always a good idea to automate processes. In most of the cases, this implicitly generates documentation and of course it leaves more time for you to focus on your business.

Consulting & IT Solutions

Here are a few ideas on how we could collaborate.

Install & Play

Sometimes, you find a tool that promises to solve all of your problems. Since that is rarely fully true, you've learned to try such tools in a live demo before deploying it.

If there is no demo available from the vendor or maintainer, we can easily set up an instance of e.g. ConedaKOR, Redmine, Wordpress, ownCloud ... just to name a few well-known candidates. As long as it runs on a web server, we can probably deploy it for you.

Of course, if you want to keep using it, we can operate it in production ... again: on whichever server you prefer.

Digital Humanities

You are a scientist and you need visibility / accessibility / usability for your data? Come talk to us, there is probably a way to build the next eye-catcher!

You first need to gather your data? No problem, we would be proud to make this job easier for you with a smart tool chain. Did we mention the prototype XML editor for digital edition projects?

You feel that your endeavor might profit from the community but it is difficult to locate or pinpoint? We'd be happy to get you on track with some peers. Contact us, the first chat is always free!

Revitalization

One of your projects has gone the wrong way and you'd like to reanimate it? This actually happens more often than you might think: Lacking communication or too much emphasis on contract details can easily make a project stagnate. We would be happy to take over.

To protect you from a similar situation in the future, we prefer working with open source components and we meticulously create documentation so that anybody can take over our work at any time: There will not be any lock-in.

Acceptance, Compliance and Approval

Let's say your project is close to completion. Perhaps another set of eyes can help to ensure that the product is in alignment with your goals. We can help you with the final check.

Joint Networks

If your organization has multiple branches in various locations, you might want to consolidate their IT infrastructure at some point. Depending on your starting conditions, it might be possible to connect all your sites with a very reliable and fast mesh VPN. Your single team members' physical location could then be chosen without IT considerations!

Training

If you like, we teach you everything we know. Whether your staff should be trained on the Linux platform or you are planning to become a more proficient developer. We are happy to help.

Projects

    Interface, just Interface

    To deliver content via an API and without a fuss, the Marbach Weimar Wolfenbüttel Research Association wanted a OAI PMH Static Repository Gateway implementation and they got one. The app runs on PHP5, PHP7 as well as Debian 9 and Windows with XAMPP. It has a tidy web interface to show, add, remove and validate repositories. The code is open source and comes with a handy vagrant environment for future development.

    DevOps for MWS

    Based in Bonn, Germany, the Max Weber Stiftung hired us to improve the deployment for their Quellenportal. The 5 cloud servers run a highly automated debian 9. They host the app, test and demo instances and of course monitoring and analytics platforms. We also configured the app to enable one-step deployments, so that their team can showcase new features quickly.

    ConedaKOR Browser Addon

    The DFK Paris funded the development of a browser addon for ConedaKOR that makes importing wikidata items a breeze. It also enables immediate media upload for imported items and it is available via addons.mozilla.org and chrome.google.com. Need help with a ConedaKOR installation? Contact us!

    Publication Database

    Leibniz-IGB needed a revamp of their publication database for internal reporting. We used a lot of autocompletes and inline help to make the app an intuitive experience. Fork it on github!

    OwnReality

    Based on data within a legacy database system, we developed a search tool for the OwnReality project at the DFK Paris. Our widgets allow searching and filtering the project's data, visualize TEI encoded publications and they integrate seamlessly with the underlying website. Fork it on github or read a blog post about the project!

How we work

Customer satisfaction

Nothing makes us more proud than being able to help you achieve your goals better. Sometimes, there is only a tiny piece missing.

Communication

We believe good communication is what makes most projects fly. This is why we make it a point to keep it professional when its crunch-time.

Keep it simple

We prefer simple solutions that use available tools, reduce costs and need no extra training.

People over tools

Even the best tool is pointless if nobody is using it. Therefore, tools have to be tailored to their users, not the other way around.

Domain knowledge

The more we understand your domain of work, the better the tools we can build for you. Expect us to be inquisitive!

Short feedback loops

You are the expert in your domain, so we show you our progress often to keep our work in line with your goals.

Automated testing

When you ask us to implement a business rule, we implement an automated test. This way, we can ensure that its working ... now and tomorrow.

Long-term perspective

With every time we work together, we have a better understanding of your domain.

Public sector?

Are you in the public sector? That's great, we are looking forward to hearing from you! We offer free consulting and discounts!

We prefer green

We realize that information systems require power to run. But we dedicate ourselves to use green power whenever possible.

Open source

We publish all our code under an open source license if this doesn't conflict with your goals.

Our team is from all over the world and we know how to deliver quality software from miles away.
