Hello folks.

Hello World. My name is Jaka. I would like to get the dry facts out of the way first.

I am a 27-year-old web developer from Slovenia with a master's degree in Computer Science who loves music and long walks on the beach. There.

But what do I actually do?

I have recently switched to working in the cloud security industry from working in the online casino and gambling software industry for 5 years, but I have been learning web development for over 10 years. From building simple HTML only websites and web forums to making drag-and-drop page editors in a custom built CMS and Node.js packages, I have done a lot. Find more details on the Skills page! One of my favourite things in the world is simply creating stuff, so web development was pretty much destined to be my thing. If you need some help with anything web, let me know, and I'll be glad to help you out.
