My name is Faruk Garić, a Full-Stack web developer and consultant.
First time when I got online (2004) I asked my teacher “How to make my own website?” Since then I committed my life in learning, building and helping others to build amazing websites, intuitive and useful web applications and businesses.
I maintain a healthy balance between functionality and visual impact in all my work.
In the last 15 years, I took a part in all the amazing changes that Web faced. Yes, I was the one who was making websites with the tables. Also, I tried to stay up to date with the web design trends during the time. Of course, I made many mistakes without which I would not be what I am today.
From this point of time, it looks crazy but I remember when WordPress version 2 is released. I was waiting for this announcement to be published 🙂
However, to make a long story short, after 15 years (half of my life) in building a Web with incredible partners, clients and colleagues, it’s time to invest more time in sharing this knowledge and experience.
That’s all about this website/blog. As a self-taught web developer, I hit many walls during my learning process but I never gave up. All I have learned the hard way I am willing to share with you guys. Thank you for visiting this website. Looking forward to learning more from your experiences and advises. So, feel free to comment or send an email. I am very open to all kinds of questions and debates.
Because I care, I share.

WordCamp Croatia @ Rijeka // 2015
WordPress Meetup @ Zagreb // 2015
In my lecture, I addressed the differences between professionals and amateurs and how I progressed in the direction of WordPress developers. Amateurs are sometimes brave and easily take on responsibilities and work only when inspired, but professionals, on the other hand, cannot afford to do the job, regardless of personal motivation or inspiration. The meetup was held at CARNet in Zagreb.
