path

After college in 2007, I started working for a small company that specialized in Oracle databases. We helped big enterprise companies to upgrade and maintain their systems. I had to earn SQL Oracle Certification Program prior working on client projects.

Next job, in 2009, I worked for most recognized Slovenian insurance company, where I was writing Java, SQL and bits of jQuery flavored JavaScript.

After a year of working on big and slowly moving Java codebase, I got a bit bored, discovered Ruby on Rails and started working on a Ruby project in my spare time. I was hooked and in 2011 I got a job in a Rails shop. I also ported games from flash to HTML5/JavaScript.

In 2012 I went to work for a smaller company. This time I was responsible to standardize development environment using Vagrant and figure out deployment processes with Capistrano. Company was using PHP / Symfony 2 as their server side technology choice. Around that time I helped mentoring RailsGirls and I ran a Ruby on Rails workshop for local high school students.

In 2014 I started working at my current company, where I've been more focused on front end spectrum. We have a large dashboard that was originally written in CoffeeScript and Backbone. In 2016 I moved to California, while most of my team mates have been working from Ljubljana, Slovenia. End of 2018 I moved to New York where I still live and work today.
