Dark Matter Consulting

Who We Are

We are technologists that believe in innersourcing and team augmentation. Dark Matter consultants have a wide spectrum of skills to fit the missing elements in your company's tech story. Our founders Doug and Mark have deep histories with .Net and have been building products for a wide range of industries from large event management, food networks, supply-chains, criminal justice and wellness apps. Based in Eugene Oregon, all of our consultants are locally sourced from the talent pools of the local Universities and Colleges as well as seasoned experts. With team shaping, we can craft a skillset to best-fit your project’s technical needs and budget. We are community minded. We support local civic tech projects and provide upskilling to the local talent pipeline.


We are one of the first teams delivering Blazor Server and Web Assembly Apps in production. Web Assembly opens up a new world of web development. It’s not often that a game-changing technology comes along that radically simplifies development like Blazor. We might seem like risk-takers at the moment, but Blazor is not an experiment. It’s baked into .Net and has a bright future with a very long tail.

While we have clients who use AWS, deploying .NET apps into Microsoft's Azure Cloud platform is simple, flexible, and affordable.

Oqtane is a modular application framework for Blazor, and Dark Matter is an early adopter. If your application requires a content management system (CMS), then Oqtane may be a good solution for you. With built in User, Role, and Page management, as well as support for custom modules designed by Dark Matter, you can be up and running with a new system in weeks.

Our Work

UNDER CONSTRUCTION: This is still a work in progress, sorry for the inconvenience...

Remote Team Building

We are remote team builders. Our projects are distributed and staffed by digital natives. We stay in constant contact using chat and cloud based project management tools. Trained as Mozilla Open Leaders, our leads have skills building empathy and creating inclusive environments for collaboration. We can help you build a world-class remote work culture.

Boring Business Apps in the Cloud

Cloud Apps, aka Web Apps, Web APIs, & Mobile Back-Ends. Not much to look at, but they get the job done. We build infrastructure in Azure and AWS using Serverless and Docker. We specialize in taking monolithic server apps and re-tooling them for the cloud, often with substantial cost savings.

We Love C# and .Net

Our founders started using .Net almost 20 years ago and have kept up with all the twists and turns along the way. Today we deploy C# running on Linux containers in the cloud and couldn’t be happier. Microsoft embracing open source was the best choice they ever made. Mobile Apps for the new normal it’s all about mobile. App-Store Apps in React Native. Progressive Web Apps in JavaScript, HTML and CSS. ASP.Net web apps that are mobile friendly will also run on larger screens of course.


Opensource software powers the internet. How can your organization leverage the collaborative nature of open source projects for your your own projects? Let us show you how.
