  • Gerber E.A.B. – Travel-friendly knife… -ish

  • About attitude, personal growth and community

    It’s been quite a long time since I have been writing after a conference I joined as a speaker.

    When I joined AsanaRebel, I picked up the project and I started to navigate through the repository, focusing especially on the build.gradle file.

  • My week at Droidcon Zagreb and App Builders
