thank your for visiting my site.
My name is Igor Benić and I am a Web Developer working @ perceptiveinteractive.com where I am working on a complex application using front end technologies.
When I am not working at my company I am developing WordPress themes and plugins.
I am situated in Rijeka, Croatia where I spend my free time mostly with my girlfriend.
I love spending time in nature and everything that is connected to spirituality which helps me a lot in personal life and also in professional life.
I have started learning about web development back when I was still a student. I have learned about web design and using Photoshop. After that I wanted to learn how to code so I have started reading a lot of tutorials. When I had enough knowledge to know how to build a simple HTML website from PSD, I wanted to learn how to build dynamic websites such as blogs.
I could not imagine that someone would open HTML files and edit them there so I started searching for dynamic websites and how to build them. I stumbled upon Lynda.com and there I have passed two courses fromwhere I have learned what is PHP, MySQL and what is Object Oriented Programming.
From there on I have played around with various tasks or projects I have given myself so I could learn more and progress. After a while I have stumbled upon WordPress and I loved it from the first install.
Today I am using WordPress for various projects where I build themes and/or plugins.
I am also the author of few eBooks:
- https://leanpub.com/wpcustomizer – Beginners’ guide to WordPress Customizer
- https://leanpub.com/practicalwp – Practical WordPress
- https://leanpub.com/webpocetnik – Web Početnik (Web Beginner)
- https://leanpub.com/webpocetnik2/ – Web Početnik 2 (Web Beginner 2)
- https://leanpub.com/wpb3/ – WordPress na Bootstrap 3.x (WordPress on Bootstrap 3.x)
When I am not developing web sites and web application, writing books or spending some quality time with my better half, I am writing or filming tutorials:

I had the pleasure to speak at one of the WordPress Meetups held in Zagreb where I talked about Responsive Web Design in WordPress.
I am an active member of WordPress Croatia group on Facebook where we help each other on everything about WordPress.
