DDB Labs is a team of experienced and motivated developers and developer pipeline specialists. We excel at project rescue, development toolchain automation, process improvement, and infrastructure management. Our team knows that the development process should securely enable capability instead of limiting it. We have decades of experience in secure environments, providing infrastructure and secure application development for government and private sector organizations. We're able to help your team learn how to do things right, sustainably, saving you money and time, and helping deliver capability to you or your clients.
We are frequent contributors to and users of open source software. If there is an open source tool that can do the job, we learn it, use it, and improve it. Our team is also application stack, environment, and toolchain-agnostic. We have worked with everything from large-scale, high-availability, VMWare-hosted IIS application servers on client premises, to a continuous integration and delivery environment hosted in the cloud, to the web server under Sergeant Snuffy's desk...and we've always increased their capabilities and effectiveness. Our mission is to quickly assess and improve our clients' projects, whatever the technology.
