👋 Hey there! I’m Ilija. My goal in life is to fuel my curiosity and always keep on learning. I’m a software engineer, writer, polyglot, DIYer, traveller, and podcasts connoisseur.
✉️ I write my own newsletter. It is a short but sweet read, and a community of +1000 other subscribers. I share essays, notes, videos, and all my learnings on the journey of excelling as a software engineer.
