More about me

I was born on June 17, 1991 in the Valjevo city, Republic of Serbia. I spent early years in Valjevo, where I attended primary and high school. I have becherol degree in economics, and masters in IT / high-tech crime / machine learning.
My interest in IT and web development started at age of 15, when I created my first c# app, and website. From that moment I was inspired by design and motivated by clients feedback.
Today I am a full-stack senior web developer with a strong focus on backend development. I can take your idea and build it from the ground up. This includes everything from server creation and management, PHP backend and API endpoints, HTML5/CSS/Javascript frontend, complete testing suite, build systems and deployment process.

What I do when I'm not codding

I believe that the world is inspirational to dramatically influence your happiness, focus and success. Therefore I tend to fill my spare time with various activities and I manage to get time for everything.

I love to read, from easy thrillers, to classics of world literature and philosophy, reading gives me inspiration and broadens my views of the world, drawing me into an unexplored imaginary dimension. You can see some of mine most recent reads on the right side 🙂

Besides that, my passion is sports - quite unusual for a programmer, isn't it? I have been involved in athletics since my teenage days, and so far I have run about 40 half marathons and trail races. A marathon is planned for some of the coming years as well. In addition, I am a big fan of skiing and I like to use every free moment in winter on the mountain, and to feel the squeak of snow under my feet 🙂
My recent sport activities are listed on the right side as well and I'm looking forward to connect with you on Strava! 😉

Running goes well with walking and wandering around new destinations. Of course, I enjoy traveling and visiting Mediterranean cities and islands, and I hope that I can significantly expand my list of visited countries in the near future by exploring new cultures, people and traditions.

In the end, and in fact something I have been doing for the longest time is dancing. I am a member of a local dance group, and have been dancing for more than 20 years. The movement goes with music, so I've been playing guitar as an amateur for the last 5 years, exclusively in the breaks between the development of great applications and sites. 🙂

Semper idem je nesumnjivo najbolja knjiga domaćeg pisca koju sam pročitao u poslednje vreme! Maestralno ispričana priča o životu, o odrastanju znatiželjnog i iskrenog dečaka, o strašnoj sudbini rata i o sjajno razvijenim likovima koji se...

Insajder, moja priča
really liked it
An interesting collection of stories that clearly depict the political situation in Serbia. The book holds attention, and many stories follow the "Insider" series, but at the same time, Brankica's inner struggles, her daring and courage.
