About

Hello there,

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.

Life

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.

Career

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 from Kevin Skoglund where 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.

eBooks

I am also the author of few eBooks:

Writing

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:

Speaking

I had the pleasure to speak at one of the WordPress Meetups held in Zagreb where I talked about Responsive Web Design in WordPress.
