I write about design, technology, and people.
Sometimes I take photos of places I visit.

WebCamp conference in Zagreb is very close to my heart.
The conference was organized in 2012 for the first time, and
that’s when and where I gave my first UX talk after I
had switched from software development to UX design.
I attended most WebCamp events since then, usually as a
conference attendee. This time, however, I decided to submit
a keynote idea I had been developing for several months.
The rest, as they say, is history.
- I have a brilliant idea for a talk.
- Talk accepted.
- Just realized that many other people have talked about my idea before. I’m an impostor.
- I don’t know where to start. Let me at least write down some initial notes.
- I have too much, where am I going to fit everything?
- [the night before the talk] OK, it’s manageable in the time I have.
- [minutes before] Why have I put myself in this position? If I survive, I’ll never do this again in my life.
- [just after the talk] Phew, it wasn’t terrible. I’m happy that it’s over.
- [months later] My last talk went great and I was brilliant. I have another idea …
Four hundred developers and designers converged on a small
Istrian town Labin where Digital Lab.in
conference is taking place for the second year in a row. The
local organizer assembled a diverse lineup from all around
Europe in a mix of workshops and talks, which is a massive win
for all industry professionals in the region.
I’m mentioning a lot of papers, online resources, and books in
my talk about foundational skills for work. I listed
everything here, so it’s easy to find and reference.
Two different worlds on so many dimensions.
