web developer

I'm a web developer living in Zagreb. I code every day with music pumping in my headphones.

Right now I'm immersed in JavaScript and React.

My projects

A selection of coding projects, with the more recent at the top

Minesweeper

August 2020

Minesweeper

It was great to explore the underlying logic of a game I played as a child.

In this project I also began to learn about end to end testing and quality assurance using Cypress.

This app allows multiple users to edit a note simultaneously in real-time.

Learnt about WebSockets, and practised using TypeScript.

Pomodoro Mobile

April 2020

Pomodoro Mobile

The pomodoro technique is invaluable to me, so I wanted to build my ideal app for it.

Working with mobile was an interesting experience, and was a welcome change to switch things up.

This website – a platform to showcase my web development projects.

It was first built as a NextJS site, then refactored into Gatsby with a Sanity headless CMS.

BPM Count

August 2018
JavaScriptReactSketch

BPM Count

An app to tap along with music and discover the tempo — measured in Beats Per Minute (BPM).

I was inspired to make this because it is a tool that I find helpful and use frequently.

Lucid

July 2018
JavaScriptReactSketch

Lucid

A project undertaken as part of a Chingu Cohort, a community coding build-to-learn project.

This was great UI design and code practice, and an introduction to working with other coders.

Pomodoro Timer

June 2018
JavaScriptReactSketch

Pomodoro Timer

A timer to track work and break periods with the Pomodoro productivity hack.

A pet project that has gone through uncountable rewrites as I continue learning.
