I write about IT and web development from the business, sales and marketing angle.
My name is Visnja Zeljeznjak (Višnja Željeznjak, actually - all the funny eastern-European characters included).
I'm a partner and sales&marketing director in logIT, web development company from Croatia, Europe. My job is to keep developers, myself and clients happy, all at the same time, more or less in that order.
I also write stuff. Sometimes my writing helps my company sell more. Other times I write just to stay sane.
I graduated from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb, Croatia with two degrees: German language and information sciences.
I am a writer.
I am amazed by words and the way they move, inspire and change people.
I have started writing a book called How (not) to run a web development agency and I will make my book earn me $200 a month by December 21st 2012.
I don't pretend to be a technical person. In my dictionary, technical people are developers, i.e. people who write code - well.
I am a total geek, but I'm not a developer. On a blog that is supposed to be about web development and web applications, I guess this is a reason enough for many of you to ignore what I have to say. I guess many people would expect an owner of one such blog to occasionally post lines of marvelously crafted code. Or talk about the latest release of his favorite framework. Or review a book he read, which is the best book about code - ever, but only if Steve Mcconnell never existed - or maybe not, he's still not sure, he'll blog about it some time later. Or whatever it is that your favorite developers slash bloggers write about.
It's not that I can't write a well-structured HTML document in a text editor, or use our company's source control system. I'm just not an expert in anything deeply technical. My angle is a bit different - and IMHO uncommon on the internet.
So, no hardcore developer stuff here. Move on. Or stick around - if you're interested in what I've got to say about business, marketing, sales, product and project angle of the web development business.
