Eduard Milushi

Software Developer in Tirana, Tirana County, Albania

Member since February 26, 2016
Eduard has worked in various odd jobs from being a waiter to a general manager, but from the moment he coded his first line, he never stopped coding even when his full-time day job had nothing to do with code. Delivering pixel-perfect websites and web apps is his second passion after his first one—being the father of a wonderful daughter.
Eduard is now available for hire
