Dom Barker

software engineer


I am a Hertfordshire based engineer with over 10 years experience of solving challenging technical problems. My main focus is full stack web and mobile development. I'm a passionate supporter of genuine agile processes and regard Test Driven Development as being the best way to write complex software that works well.

I prefer to use the right tool to solve the task in hand, rather than specialising in any particular technology. I am especially enthusiastic about open source, rapid development toolsets like Ruby on Rails and Node.js.

I'm available for new projects in August / September 2015.


These of are some of the technologies that I have been using commercially in the recent past.
