Diamond is not only the king gemstone, but also a promising material in modern technology (which holds a promise to replace silicon). Less known is that defects in diamond can be used for quantum technologies. Owing to their remarkable stability, colour centres in diamond have already found an application in quantum cryptography.  In this talk I will discuss recent progress regarding spin-based quantum information processing and sensing at nanoscale.
