Afan Pasalic
My name is Afan Pašalić, and this is my little piece of the web. I admit that it is mostly business and work oriented information, but I would like to think it also represents a bit of self-expression, an extension of myself.
I am a web developer, and have been working in the field of web development and web design for about thirteen years. For the past ten years, I have been specializing in building web applications using PHP/MySQL, AJAX, DHTML, CSS, as well as Drupal CMS and CodeIgniter PHP framework.
The work I enjoy most involves both client and server side technologies. By combining back-end database integration, with solid client side technologies (Javascript, AJAX, jQuery and CSS), as well as elegant user interface design, it is possible to create applications that push the boundaries of what the web can offer the end user.
I excel at playing this middle role, between technology and design. I have the technical aptitude and attention to create solid code, and the design sensibilities and esthetic sense to know what looks and works well, and strive for a good balance of both.
So, please have a look around. If you would like more information, think I might be a good fit for your project, or just want to give me some feedback, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
