We make your systems explainable. Literally.

We are a consulting company organized like a research lab. We are authors and researchers. We invented Moldable Development and we develop Glamorous Toolkit.

We create

Glamorous Toolkit

Glamorous Toolkit is the moldable development environment. It is a live notebook. It is a flexible search interface. It is a fancy code editor. It is a software analysis platform. It is a data visualization engine. All in one. It is free and open-source under an MIT license.

And we use it for crazy projects to show that the promise is real.

We invented

Moldable Development

Figuring your system out occupies most of your effort. Developers alone spend more than half of their time doing just that. That's your single largest development expense. Moldable Development redefines this activity.

Everything about your system is data, and data is best approached through custom tools. Through moldable development, developers construct custom tools for every problem. It's like data science for software development. And it affects everything.

What to do with your legacy system?

So, you have a legacy system. First, that's a positive thing. Still, you want to know what to do next. Should you migrate? Should you split it? And how about the challenge of adding that new crosscutting functionality?

We build custom tools to let you estimate and observe the impact of your decisions on the reality of the system. And we guide you through the whole process, from the technical aspects to the business part.

How to evolve your system's architecture?

Ok, maybe you already know what you want to do with your legacy system, but the architecture stops you from doing it.

We help you steer it. We capture your existing ideas and rules into executable constraints, we visualize the violations, and we get the team to incorporate all these in their daily work.

Want to explore your business domain faster?

Ideas are funny animals. They look great on paper because paper can support anything. If you want accurate feedback, make them executable. Capture the domain in code and visualize it to make it approachable for non technical people. We show you how.
