About

Experienced web developer and computer programmer, looking for the next challenge

I always believed in learning by doing, so I began freelancing while still in college - I liked it so much that I'm still in the business. Since I studied Computer Science in college, we only worked with "serious" programming languages like Java and C++ and web oriented programming was looked down upon (and still is by many academic types). That means that I had to learn everything about web development myself and I spent hours upon hours scouring books, forums and tutorials.

I began with PHP - that was the coolest new platform at the time and everyone was building sites with it. I did php development for a couple of years, until I discovered Ruby on Rails and fell in love with it - I like the test driven approach, the emphasis on agility and quick product iterations and focus on keeping up with user demands.

Along the way, I learned that not only your app has to work well, it has to look nice and be intuitive and quick for users to learn how to get around. I mastered HTML, CSS and Javascript pretty fast and I now approach every feature I develop from a user experience standpoint - even when working in backend, since fellow programmers will eventually be using that code so I think about them as future "users"

Good thing about teaching yourself all the skills is that you learn to keep up with technologies and that's another thing I love about being a freelancer - new challenges, new environments, new paradigms to master - never a boring day.

Thank you for considering me for your next project and feel free to message me anytime.

Best,
Marko Kacanski

Work Terms

My hours of operation are Central European Time, but I'm flexible to shift it +/- 3 hours if you want me to work along with your office. If you are from australia/oceania or far east - I have no problem communicating with daily reports so you don't miss out on anything I've done previous workday.

My preferred method of communication is email, or any kind of written communication because in my experience it's the best way to avoid confusion and to have an archive of all conversations

I do, however, realize that face-to-face time gets a lot of things done quicker so I'm open to Skyping, Google Hangouts, you name it :)
