About Me

Hello, my name is Marko and this is my personal website. I’m born in early September in 1993 which means that I’m now 23 years old. For Religious believes I’m fully fledged Christian.

My current state of employment, education and other important information looks something like this: happily employed in company “Gold Deal d.o.o.” within “maskice.hr” brand as IT Technician and Web Administrator. For current state of education I can say that it is in state of part-time college study of “Computer systems and network engineering”, “Department of Computing and Information Technology” at “Zagreb University of Applied Sciences“. With all of above still have time to create content for YouTube and other various social media platforms.

As far as hobby goes, I would most likely say that I have multiple of hobbies. Some of hobbies are sports alike and some of them include bicycle riding in various conditions, running and swimming. For some non-sport like hobbies I like to show off photography, writing, reading books and IT magazines and finally programming.

Education and IT growth

As far education goes it all started in Primary school “Žitnjak”, Zagreb back in year 2000. In primary school I managed to learn a lot of new stuff, from which one side managed to get my attention in 4th grade. That stuff was call Informatics. From 5th grade and up to 8th grade in Informatics class I got to learn new and exciting stuff about Computers, Basic operations with computer and Internet, programming in BASIC and LOGO, some photography editing and finally building website. Some of knowledge which I learnt in primary was left behind like BASIC and LOGO, but others like photography editing and web design stay until present day.

Choosing high-school was one of important thing to do in 8th grade. I had some decisions about 2 schools but eventually chose the right one. It was “Technical school of Ruđer Bošković”, Zagreb. This high-school was and still is one of better IT high-schools in Zagreb, especially in developing students which know what they can do and where they can apply knowledge. I got in “Ruđer” as most of people call this school in year 2008. From 1st grade up to 4th grade I got to learn lot of details about PC architecture, System Administration of Small-Office/Home-Office Systems, programming in C/C++ and C# a bit, professional networking using CISCO gear and about PCB design. This also expanded my views for next step in education, but also helped my alot to get my branch of IT.

Next big step in education was choosing right college. Before “matura” I had wide variety of colleges to choose. One of them was “Zagreb University of Applied Sciences” and another one which I had in mind was “University of Applied Sciences Velika Gorica”. I choose “Zagreb University of Applied Sciences” but with a twist. I had to enter into “Deparment of Electrical Engineering”. Reason for that is just plain system error or to be precise – people wanted “easier Department” which was in 2012 and that was “Deparment of Computing”. “Department of Electrical Engineering” was my third choice on list for college in “Postani student” system for a while, but when I saw what is happening to my position in two departments I said to myself: “Screw it, it is similar to other two departments so I can move to another one next academic year”. That was a horrible mistake which took me 4 years of not so successful education to somehow fix it. Meanwhile in “Department of Electrical Engineering” I had to learn some new stuff like programming in Java and LabView, using MatLab and GNU Octave as Open-Source alternative, new stuff about embedded systems and had access to learn and improve networking knowledge using CISCO gear.

After 4 years spent in wrong department of college, in middle of June 2016. I found about some progress made for part-time study which blew me away. That was that I can start fresh as part-time student but with a twist (again) – have to finish exams which are different from old department. After All, this isn’t bad as it would be if I had to start college from scratch. That part-time study is now on “Department of Computing and Information Technologies”. It is part-time because of current work, and also because I couldn’t start as regular student anymore on same college without getting involved in “matura” again.

 

Work Experience and Skills

Work experience can be described in two word – successfully employed in company named Gold Deal d.o.o within maskice.hr brand name. My work as IT Technician, Social Media Manager and Web-Shop Manager is great. There is lot of work about Web-Shop and IT Services that I can provide such are Smartphone recovery from malware, Phone restores and migrating data, Servicing laptops and Desktops from various states of issues and many more things.

For Skills I can say that my skills are mostly learned myself using Internet and self research with self-paced learning schedule.

Skills are divided in two major groups which include:

IT Division with Programming and Debugging

Audio-Video / Photography Division

About 80% of programming I learned in high school and college. In that time I learned about programming in few common programming languages such are:

ANSI C

C++

Java

C#

LabView

Withing college and high school I learned more about IT based skills which include

Creating and servicing Small Office-Home Office Networking and Hardware related problems

System Administration in multiple Operating Systems like Windows Client, Windows Server and Linux based Operating Systems

Within free time and self-paced learning time I learned about Web Design, Basics of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, php and Content Management Systems which include and doesn’t stop at:

WordPress & WooCommerce

Joomla

Drupal

MediaWiki

Custom based CMS in php

Some of skills like

Video Editing

Video Production

Audio Production

Photography

Photography Editing

and many more

are learned during college and end of high school with slow and sometimes painful self-paced learning time.

For most of works I preffer to use Free and Open-Source products, but in some cases I had to use paid software. Most of them are used in “Extended Trials* ” or I paid for them in some way.

Those apps include and don’t stop at:

Adobe Photoshop***

Adobe Illustrator*

Adobe Premiere Pro*

Adobe After Effects*

Sony Vegas Pro Edit (Steam Edition) **

Sony Movie Studio (Steam Edition) **

TechSmith Camtasia Studio*

Notes:

* Extended Trial means few things, from which one is that I use free software called RunAsDate from company NirSoft or use unofficial patches so it can run in non-trial mode

** I actually paid for this piece of Software on Steam, you can check it out at my Steam account which can’t lie about that

*** Paid for thispiece of software, but not from official store because version which I bought aren’t availiable anymore for sale, so after some bad experiences with eBay auctions got Photoshop CS6 Extended for super cheap and legit.
