This is the professional blog and home page of Barry Dahlberg, a freelance contractor based in Auckland, New Zealand.

I’ve been making software professionally for over a decade and as a hobby for years before that. In that time I’ve worked on a great variety of projects ranging from console games to mobile apps to billion dollar SaaS websites. I’ve recruited and led technical teams, managed projects and worked alongside salespeople in the client interface.

My focus now is on building better development teams and helping businesses get the most value out of them. I’m always open for a chat about the industry so feel free to drop me a line.

All of the delightful little sketches on this site have been provided by the amazing James Espie. You should absolutely get in touch with him if you need any illustration work done.
