Hello, I'm Stanko, a software engineer in Belgrade, writing mostly about JavaScript and React.

Winter Tech Meetup Vol 5

We prepared another tech meetup, this time with four presentations. There will be a break after the second one. This should be the biggest one so far, with two guest speakers.

It will happen on February the 4th, at Belgrade Youth Centre. Hope to see you there!

Thanks to everyone who participated!

Counting sheep

Just something to cheer you up for the holidays :) I got this idea while I was sick in bed, and had nothing smarter to do. Pure CSS, no JavaScript at all. Hope you like it, I may add some more details.

Check the code on codepen.

Happy new year!

Looking forward to the 2017

2016 was quite a ride. I just want to write a couple of random things, to close this year with one last post.

Work & Co

Big news here, my company became a part of Work & Co. We’re really excited about that, and I’m looking forward to the great stuff we are going to build. Our collaboration goes back for a few years now, it was very productive, and this is a great step forward.

My current title is a Technology Director and I’m in charge of a tech team, here in the Belgrade office.

React and Redux, Webpack 2 boilerplate

Currently, I’m working on a relatively small pet project. While setting it up, I decided to extract a webpack boilerplate from it.

As whole JS community is moving really fast, I found very hard to set everything up using Webpack 1.x. One package would ask to update the other, that would break the third one, then that one… and so on.

Luckily, I was able to set everything up using Webpack 2. It is still in beta, but I had no problems so far.

You can find the boilerplate on GitHub.

Setting up Webpack, Babel and React from scratch - Part 3


Part three - also the last part

Other parts:

  • Part 1 - Webpack, Babel, React, Router, ESLint
  • Part 2 - SASS, more ES6 goodness (Static props, decorators, deconstruction…)
  • Part 3 - Where to go from here

Where to go from here

I really wanted to continue this series, but unfortunately whole JavaScript / Node community is moving so fast, that I found really hard to keep these tutorials up to date. Webpack 2 and React Hot Loader 3 are on the horizon. Some package versions break the other ones. Usual JavaScript business :)

So I’ll leave you with a link or two below.
