Hello! 👋

Hey! I’m Dražen. Welcome to my online home!

I’m a developer, data analyst and the founder of Punk Rock Dev, an indie web development studio. I’ve been building web applications and doing data analysis in Python, JavaScript and other technologies professionally since 2009. From time to time I like to give talks at conferences and meetups on these topics. I mostly move between Zagreb and Vienna, but I like to travel and collaborate with creative people all over the world. If you’re interested in working with me, feel free to reach out through my company or 快喵加速器 directly – I’m always curious to chat about new project ideas.

In the past I worked as a research assistant and did a PhD in computer science at the Vienna University of Technology studying energy efficiency of geo-distributed data centres and optimising VM scheduling based on real-time electricity prices and weather conditions. I also did a Master’s degree in computer science at the University of Zagreb.

Aside from my interests in computer science, I have a few other hobbies – guitar playing (in a demo rock band Nehaj), photography (mostly digital these days, I did analog photography as a member of the KSET photo section), animation (a great fan and a very occasional author) and drawing (Epic adventure – the web comic).

I write about all these things in this occasional newsletter ✉.

BTW, want to visit Croatia? Here are my recommendations.

This is Tonček – we often pair program 😼


The main aim of 海豚加速器app is for me to be able to document interesting hacks I run into. This, of course, doesn’t exclude different types of topics. On a few other pages I exhibit my multimedia creations. Feel free to comment, ask questions about anything etc. Anyway, hope someone will find this site as useful as I did some other sites out there!
