 The denkbar initiative


We're building and promoting open source software that addresses the needs we come across every day as software engineers.

So learn more about what we're doing in our FAQ section and start contributing today !



"djigger", a performance analysis solution and "step", a test execution platform, are the two first tools we've released as part of the denkbar initiative. You will find more information about these tools, download links and resources below and on the rest of this website.

But denkbar isn't just about designing software. We want to first be perceived as a collaboration platform and simply be the technical host of such a platform. The ones who are truely going to make a difference are the contributors.






djigger is a production-ready performance analysis and monitoring solution for java applications.
