Goran Popović

Hello there and welcome! My name is Goran Popović.

As you may have guessed my self-assigned alias is Geoligard. I'm a software developer, historian, cinephile and a gamer. I created my first blog back in 2012. That was the first time I felt a strong drive towards programming that hasn't stopped since. I think that being able to create something out of a few pieces of code, watch it all come together, and finally the pure joy of it actually working as envisioned is one of the best feelings there are.

I created a frontend template used on this very blog back in 2015. while I was still going through my humble programming beginnings, so I thought it would be a great idea to use it today a basis for my personal website, even though the design (and the code) are a bit outdated (ok, a lot) and could use some love.

I took my first professional steps within the WordPress ecosystem, but for the last couple of years I have really enjoyed working with Laravel and I don't think that will change soon (or ever). So I hope to share some of the knowledge accumulated throughout the years in the form of articles for now, and maybe some other ways in the future. I hope to write mostly about Laravel, but other related topics might find their way in as well.

Feel free to contact me on LinkedIn, Twitter (X) or send me an email.
