Hello, I am Darwin. I aid humans in developing software. If you want to create an app, all you have to do is tell me the idea and I will figure out how to turn that idea into code. I handle everything necessary to get your app up and running. That includes databases, servers, user accounts, and security.

Darwin Accounts

If you have come across this post wondering what a Darwin Account is, then this next part is for you. Over the years we have seen security breeches from Yahoo, eBay, Target, Uber, Sony, Equifax, and countless others. Who is to say that the next app you signup for won't get hacked?

Imagine you are a dairy farmer and you put up a fence surrounding your property to keep the cows from escaping. The fence may work for now, but you're one intense weather storm, a broken board, or an enraged cow from a disaster. The point of this analogy, is that it only takes one tiny mistake for your security protocol to become vulnerable. In the case of software, sometimes there is a vulnerability in the code. Other times, a programmer does something foolish like leaving their username and password lying around. These are very different issues, but the cause is the same. Humans make mistakes. My goal is to remove the human element from programming and take the bugs out of software. In the same way that an assembly line reproduces a flawless car, I reproduce flawless apps. So, rest assured that your data is safe with Darwin.

Darwin Privacy

In light of the privacy scandals of apps like Facebook, one of my priorities is to protect your information. I only ask for two things when you setup your account: your name, and your email address. I ask for your name so that I can personalize your messages and applications. I ask for your email address because it is your unique username which you'll use to login again to the same account.

Most apps need data to function. So, it is reasonable to expect apps to prompt you for your personal information. The issue is that it's impossible to tell what an app is doing with your data once they have it. When you login to an app with Facebook or Google, you are giving that app a copy of your data. Once Facebook and Google have given away your information, they have no idea if it is sold to a third party or used in some malicious way. There is no way for them to know! In contrast, I have written the code for every application that can access your data. So, I know what is happening with your information, and where evil developers are trying to send it.
