Dario Jazbec Hrvatin

I was born in Zagreb, Croatia but fell in love and married a Slovenian girl in 2007 and moved to Slovenia, where we live now, together with our daughter and a chihuahua dog. Even though I finished the University of Economics in Zagreb (Department of Informatics), I have always been fascinated by computers and technology, so with the rise of the Web and web development, I jumped on board and started to create my first HTML-driven websites. At an early stage of my self-training to become a web-developer, I started using WordPress as the CMS of my choice and I made a very good choice. After years of freelancing and working for a renowned Slovenian marketing agency as the main web developer, I got the opportunity to work with OnTheGoSystems, company behind one of my all-time favorite plugins Types and WPML. And this is where I happily am now. I am now a documentation manager for all the company’s projects. I also organize and lead usability testing sessions for our plugins. Working with OnTheGoSystems connected me ever more with the WordPress community and allowed me to start attending WordCamps – and of course speaking at them. I was very lucky to have been chosen on some of them already and every new WordCamp I attend fills me with further ideas, energy, and motivation. Besides WordPress and web, I am a musician with my own musical project Helika. We had the first album was published by one of the region’s biggest record companies but are currently in hibernation for the near future (will be back).

I worked many 9-17h and 7-19 jobs because my lack of education degree, but always dreamed about having my own computer realted bussines and working from home. That was as I said a dream. Than middle of 2015 when I was introduced to html and css by my friend, and for the first time i actually saw my dream coming true in the future. Later on I discovered WordPress and we are inseparable since than 🙂
