Verified Expert in Engineering
Full-stack Web Developer
Vlado is a full-stack web developer who's been working as a freelancer since 2012—mainly focused on building websites using WordPress. Some of them are more web applications than sites, and this is why he considers WordPress as a framework just like any other. His primary goal is to make user-friendly websites that are easy-to-use and maintain. Vlado believes that simplicity is the highest art form.
