Tonći is a polyglot web developer with a broad range of interests and also a broad range of experiences. He started out with Perl/CGI around 1999, but worked with various languages/tools throughout the years. In the last few years, he has focused on Elixir as he is in love with the language. Since his new love, he enjoys discovering functional aspects of programming languages. He is the organiser of the Amsterdam Elixir meetup, Elixir Bootcamp and is a co-organiser of Code BEAM lite Amsterdam.
