DUGGA - Development of digital test platform for partnership

Dugga is a digital examination platform for all types of knowledge assessments for schools, universities and other educational organizations. The system is based on scientific research and has been developed in cooperation with researchers, teachers and students.

In order for Dugga to expand its platform to the European market, it reached out to us at Fastdev. A dedicated team was set up to help Dugga with the development and testing of the system. As a result of this close collaboration, Fastdev decided to invest in Dugga on a “work for equity” scheme.

The CEO Patrik Nilsson’s comments on the collaboration:

– We feel very positive about Fastdev partnering with us both in business and technological development. It reduces direct costs for us, while we get a dedicated partner that is truly committed to helping us.


Various technologies, such as Python, Django, Postgresql and MongoDb were used together with Microsoft Azure cloud solution to handle Dugga’s server. Fastdev´s developers also took on the responsibility for the project´s more technical aspects, where the most difficult task was to optimize and make the number of queries to the database static. The team also made major structural changes to the code and eliminated a series of bugs in order to optimize the system. Several major problems were solved such as the transfer of students submissions in pdf format. An automated process was created that also eliminated a previous problem with freezing the user’s interface in the process.

Fastdevs developers were also swift at responding to technical issues during operation. When several thousands students were in the process of writing a test, an error occurred in the application. The developers of Fastdev urgently analyzed what was wrong and performed various tests and were able to localize and fix the problem on spot both in the application and on the Ngrinx server.

Claudia Rademaker, operational manager at Dugga comments;

– Fastdev is flexible and has very competent employees. They can effectively adjust the
programming and development languages ​​that we work with. Cooperation with them is extremely positive for us.
