We are DDQ. We create and deliver innovative software for almost every mobile platform, everywhere. From the Arctics to Zimbabwe.

Smartphone based citizen science projects

Flexible back ends, data services and databases

We provide tailor made, flexible and fast smartphone back ends to facilitate mobile cloud computing, machine learning, user notifications, storage and offline synchronisation for working in remote areas.

Public outreach and education

We share our citizen science knowledge, teach children how to code, talk at TedX and tell everyone about our exciting work.
