The dev-duck-swap market place application provides a two-sided market-place for developers to find, buy and sell debugging ducks.

Rubber ducky debugging is a popular problem-solving method within the tech industry; developers are encouraged to place a rubber duck at their work station and speak aloud to it whenever they encounter a bug.

The number of information technology professional jobs in Australia is expected to increase to 758,700 by 2023 but a specific debugging duck buy and trade platform doesn't exist! There is a huge opportunity for a solution to enter the market in this unexplored territory.

Locating a debugging duck is time-consuming as while this is a highly popular problem-solving method, there is not a central place for developers to go to specifically find a rubber duck.

Adding to the problem, when a developer becomes stuck with a bug it is often that their current duck does not know enough to provide a sufficient answer. There is no way of knowing debugging experience when a duck is gifted or purchased from a store.

The dev-duck-swap marketplace is a one-stop-shop to fix these problems by providing one platform of experienced ducks.
