Boro Vukovic

Web Developer & Problem Solver

Hello! I'm an engineer at heart but a Global Business and Digital Arts graduate from the University of Waterloo on paper. I absolutely love to solve problems and am an automation, optimization and performance freak. Not only do I enjoy and thrive on technical challenges but I also love delivering users the best value through good user experiences.

I have several years of experience in both IT and full stack web development. I'm experienced with all stages of the development cycle for dynamic web projects. I'm an excellent team player with superb people skills.

Fun Fact

I once successfully pulled off a Wikipedia hoax that ended up in published journals and textbooks.

Education

Global Business and Digital Arts

This new and innovative Bachelor Degree was a love-at-first-sight moment for me. It was the perfect blend of Business and Digital Media. It was also filled with opportunities to do self learning; allowing me to tinker with and learn new technologies, techniques and software.

Computer Engineering

Started off University with Computer Engineering. Then realized in order to solve the world's problems better, I needed to be more well rounded and knowledgable in other fields such as digital media and business.

High School

The Computer Engineering and Intro to Computer Sciences classes is where I had my first run-in with programming. I began to explore the world of web development and, through side projects, started to learn HTML, CSS, JavaScript and PHP.

Interest

First of all, I love music, uplifting trance music is my favourite. I like playing Call of Duty with friends online. I really enjoy tinkering and figuring out how everything works, especially when it involves Do-It-Yourself type projects. I'm also in love with my Subaru WRX and driving anywhere in any weather conditions in general. I'm always on the lookout for ways to become an even better version of myself. #BeTheBestYouCanBe
