MY WORK STORY
In my long IT career, I have held many different positions that helped me to have a comprehensive view of the software as a product and solution from the perspective of the developer, consultant, end-user, etc.
While I was working in Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in North Caroline as Steward I was thinking that although in a few months I will hold a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering due to the bad economy in the Automotive Industry I should invest my time and money in booming IT sector. I consider myself a Commodore 64 generation and liked computers since then so switching from engineering to IT was not such a bad idea after all.
After I got my M.Sc. diploma I took several Microsoft courses in order to get certificates so I can start my IT adventure. Please read below my Microsoft Transcript.
Here is the list of positions that I held and companies that I have worked for:
- Position: Senior Technical Consultant – Agresso Operation (5 years)
Company: EVRY ASA, Oslo, Norway
- Position: Technical System Analyst (3 years)
Company: Unit4 Agresso R&D, Oslo, Norway
- Position: IT Specialist (2 years)
Company: AD Jaffa biscuit factory, Crvenka, Serbia
- Position: Programmer of ERP solution (2 years)
Company: Informatika AD, Belgrade, Serbia
I am really proud that I had a chance to work on the biggest Agresso installation (both Financial and HR solutions) in Norway at the City of Oslo.
Personally, I like to automate the processes as much as I can in order to avoid boring and repetitive tasks that are prone to human errors. A huge part of this website is about the Efficiency Booster PowerShell Project which is a library of PowerShell CmdLets that I have extensively used in my everyday IT tasks to be extremely efficient.

MY PERSONAL STORY
I live in the capital of Norway, Oslo, with my wife, Biljana, and my son Matija whom we spend all our time.
When I do not create the website content I like to travel with my family. We have been to many countries mostly in Europe even to the small ones like Monaco, Liechtenstein, and Luxembourg. I have been fortunate enough not just to visit many countries but to live and work in five different countries: Serbia, Austria, Slovenia, the USA, and Norway.
I believe that my destiny to experience different cultures was sealed with my birth. As a month-old baby, I traveled for the very first time with my mother from Yugoslavia where I was born to Austria where my parents worked. My first passport was my photo in my mother’s passport since I was too young to have my own passport.
A multicultural environment comes usually with different languages and I like to learn them in order to better communicate with people, I speak several languages: Serbian, Croatian, English, Norwegian, and I used to speak Esperanto but not anymore. I would love to learn Spanish as my next language and maybe French.
Many people live their whole lives at the same address and nothing wrong with that but I have lived for one period of my life in the same street and the same city but different country, not so many people can experience that. First I lived in the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia then I “moved to” the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia next I “rented” Serbia and Montenegro and finally finished in Serbia.
