Things I learned in the past four years

on December 30, 2016. in Blablabla, Development, Programming. A 4 minute read.

Since yesterday was my last day on a project after four years and two months, I decided to take a look back on those four years and write down some of the things I learned.

Hiking the Uvac special nature reserve

on July 27, 2016. in Free Time, Blablabla. A 6 minute read.

In 2014 my wife Senka and I went on a camping vacation in Greece, on the Lefkas island. It was the first time camping for her, while I did some camping the year before. We quickly realised that we both enjoy camping very much and agreed to go on as many camping trips as possible.

Vimprovements

One part where I always felt (and still feel) that I could improve on my Vim usage, is when moving around. I don’t use the mouse, I don’t use the arrow keys, but for a while now I felt that spamming hjkl to get from one place to another is not really efficient. To be honest, it is kind of easy to just press down jjjjjjj … to move down lines. Went a bit too far? Just kk back. But there has to be a better way.

This is the last post about the Thinkpad and Fedora. At least for a while. Promise.

Developer conferences in Croatia

on October 28, 2013. in Blablabla, Development. A 3 minute read.

In the past month and a half I had the pleasure of attending not one, but two developer conferences in Croatia’s capital Zagreb. Both conferences are community organized, by people who apparently know what they are doing, as I only have words of praise for them.

Eight years of PHP

on April 04, 2013. in Blablabla. A 3 minute read.

This time around eight years ago I was introduced to this thing called PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor. I studied it in college as a part of classes on “Internet Technologies”. It consisted of HTML, CSS, some Javascript and XML, and PHP.

Learning English

on March 29, 2013. in Blablabla, Free time. A 2 minute read.

Most of my knowledge of the English language is self-taught. I had English classes in elementary school, but that was more or less singing "London bridge is falling down" and reciting a list of irregular verbs. I also had a semester of English in college, but that again consisted of reciting a list of irregular verbs (true, this time the list was longer) and reading and translating engineering texts. Good for learning how to read a technical manual, but not so much when it comes to having a conversation with other people. Other than that, it's all from computers, music, films, books.

A monkey with a banana

on January 08, 2013. in Blablabla, Free time. A 4 minute read.

From time to time I browse through the local board shop’s website, especially the “Longboard” section, because, well, I have recently developed this passion for longboarding. Few weeks back, just sometimes before Christmas, I was doing the same. Just casually browsing around, nothing that would catch my interest. And then, there it was, at the bottom of the page. A banana board. “Oh my, a real beauty”, I thought to myself. The price was also in the affordable range. But, a problem was that I really couldn’t, justify to buy it.

2012 - 'twas a fine year!

on January 01, 2013. in Blablabla, Free time. A 4 minute read.

2012 was a real fine year, filled with travel, friends, work, longboards, books. A couple of beers found their way in my belly, too. The best part is that I honestly can’t remember that a single bad thing happened this year. Most likely because it didn’t. Pure awesomeness.

Let's learn Astronomy!

on September 29, 2012. in Free time, Blablabla. A 2 minute read.

I've graduated from Subotica Tech back in 2009., and earned a BsC in electrical engineering, or some such. Even though I had the opportunity to continue my academic studies, I decided that I had enough of schools for a while, and that I should start working. Turns out, that was a pretty smart move from my side, as I ended up working for two years with an awesome team, and later on started my own company, which is now over a year old! Yey!
