A weekly to-do

on March 08, 2018. in Blablabla. A 4 minute read.

About a year ago I listened to a ThatPodcast episode where Dave and Beau talked about bullet journalling. I found the idea of it appealing, but over the next few months I just couldn’t find a bullet journal in any of the (book)stores I went to. As time passed so did my interest in this. After all, I was getting along without such a system just fine. My life isn’t that crazy busy, 7-8 hours of sleep, 7-10 hours of work work, and the rest is up for grabs — hanging out with my wife Senka (her name translates to Shadow, how cool is that?), reading, writing, cooking, open source, whatever.

on February 21, 2018. in Software, Blablabla. A 2 minute read.

Details matter

Last week on Thursday the lovely people from Zagreb PHP had me over for a talk. I presented my new talk called “All aboard the Service Bus”. I gave this talk once before at the PHP Srbija meetup in January. I’ve reused the slides, made some minor adjustments based on the feedback I received in Belgrade, and of course updated the footer.

Free the Geek interview

on January 12, 2018. in Blablabla. A 1 minute read.

Last year (feels weird to say “last year”, when it was less than a month ago) Matthew asked me if I’d be willing to appear as a guest on his Free the Geek podcast. To have a short chat about running my own software consultancy, freelancing, public speaking, and whatever else pops up.

Five days of Advent of Gode

on December 06, 2017. in Programming, Development, Blablabla. A 5 minute read.

A week or so ago, Luka mentioned this Advent of Code thing. I’ve been doing coding challenges and examples before, but never have I tried the AoC (this is the third year it’s running).

Everybody knows that

Recording screencasts of OSS contributions

on April 19, 2017. in Blablabla, Programming. A 2 minute read.

I enjoy contributing to open source projects, and I learn a lot while doing it. When someone asks me for advice on how to improve as a programmer, I usually tell them to find an open source project that interests them, and start contributing.

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.

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.

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.
