Darko Bunic

Hi, my name is Darko Bunic. I am a married, father of two and live in Zagreb, Croatia.

My job
I work full time as Information Systems Manager in IT department. We’re developing intranet Web applications based on Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP. Web applications are build in custom framework which main power is automatic XML generation from SQL queries. This way, we have clean architecture with separated business logic and presentation layer. I wrote several posts about PHP and XML:

From MySQL to XML with PHP
From MySQL to HTML with PHP and XML

Technologies in short
Do you remember Commodore 64? That was my beginning at age of 14. First it was Basic then assembler for 6510. In high school we programmed in Pascal. In college period I learned Fortran, C, Motorola 68000, SQL, 4GL and PIC micro controller. After I was hired, technologies come one after another: databases, Web technologies, Java, Linux, Perl, PHP, JavaScript …

Blogging
In my case, blogging was natural step to share experience and the things that I’m learning. Many of my posts focus on how to concepts to explain and provide information in a simple and easy way. WordPress is just another PHP based site so making WordPress modifications is also fun to do.

My hobbies
My hobby is machining with mini-lathe, CNC and electronics. Actually I have plans to build a CNC machine from old printers but I’m just finished stepper controller. Yes, you can see how my PIC stepper controller works.

I have few other videos on YouTube (not related to Web technologies). ;)
