We reshape the Development eXperience to make your systems explainable.

We work as a consulting company. But, we are not just consultants. We are authors and researchers.

We created humane assessment to help your team make better technical decisions and steer agile architecture. We authored demo-driven development to capture ideas as executable specifications and tell exciting stories with and about your systems. We invented moldable development and we develop Glamorous Toolkit.

With us you get first-hand expertise and guidance.

Glamorous Toolkit

We believe programming is the coolest job on the planet. And this requires appropriate equipment.

Glamorous Toolkit is the moldable integrated development environment. Each system is different and we believe every bit of it should be allowed to look and feel different, too. Glamorous Toolkit makes this possible down to each individual object. And this, turns out, can change fundamentally the way we approach programming.


We tackle unusual or difficult problems. Together with you. And we coach teams to practice novel approaches to software engineering.

Steer agile architecture

Architecture does not just happen. Architecture is a valuable asset that requires permanent investment.

We coach you to do that in practice.

Executable specifications

Paper can support anything. If you want accurate specifications, make them executable.

We show you how.


Unsure how to start with Pharo? Or perhaps you want to migrate your existing system to Pharo?

We guide you.

Split monolithic systems

A monolith grows over time until it reaches a point in which it does not scale anymore.

We support you with splitting it.


We offer courses based on the research, tools and methods that we have developed ourselves. Our courses are designed to make you think differently about software development.

Steering agile architecture

Emerge your architecture. That’s great, but how do you ensure the cohesiveness of the result?

1-2 days
for engineers and managers.

Data science for software development

Half of the development time is spent on assessing the system. How do you invest it effectively?

2 days
for engineers.

Molding objects with moldable tools

Every object has the right to be different. Embrace that and change the way you program. In Pharo.

2 days
for engineers.

Storytelling in a technical world

Our technical world is governed by facts. This can make us forget that our job is to produce value.

1 day
for engineers and managers.

Research & Development

We create new concepts and actively contribute to open-source software projects.

Humane assessment

Humane assessment is the method for making software engineering decisions. It can be used for steering agile architecture, for guiding migrations, or for splitting monolithic applications.


Demo-driven is a method that helps you embed innovation through stories in software development projects. It helps guiding design decisions and eases the maintanenace of a common vision.


Moose is an extensive platform for software and data analysis. It has accumulated multiple hundred person years of research and development. We led its development for more than 16 years.
