I am a web developer from Belgrade, Serbia. My main focus is Front-end development and my favorite technologies are HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.


'Do or do not, there is no try' - Yoda, Star Wars

I started to code about eight months ago and I absolutely loved it. Couple months before that I started researching all the possibilities on how to become a self-taught web developer. I was lucky enough to discover freeCodeCamp and HarvardX's CS50 course and that is how my learning began.

For me, coding is a unique skill and knowledge between engineering and art. You have the ability to make something out of nothing and still, that can be used in solving practical, real-life problems as well as encourage critical opinion and make a permanent impact on society. The possibilities are endless and the knowledge is infinite, perfect for imaginative and ambitious people who dare to never stop dreaming about the impossible.

Acquiring those skills and knowledge really changed my life because it taught me two important lessons: it is never too late to change your career or your life and the hardest and most challenging stuff in life are the most rewarding.
