About Barry McAuley.

Hi, thanks for wanting to know a bit more about me. I was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 and I am now currently residing in London, UK 🇬🇧.

Since a young age, I have always been interesting in understanding the different ways things can be built and the tools used to make them possible. Software engineering then, naturally, was a way for me to satisfy my curiosity. In 2015, I graduated with a first-class honours from the University of Strathclyde.

Along the way, I have realised patterns and learned hard mistakes which, through this blog, I hope to share with the world so that we can all understand our surroundings a bit better.
