Started 4th year of BSc
Now officially a senior student of Informatics at University of Belgrade, Faculty of Mathematics. Only a quarter more to go!

And boy, is this year filled with group projects.

Started learning Golang
Started my Golang and Gin journey with a toy budgeting web app. One evening and an afternoon were enough to figure out how to connect to the database, expose an API and handle user auth with JWT tokens and appropriate middleware. It's actually all more seamless and straightforward than I expected. However, this will likely go on a break soon, as I'll be occupied with college projects any day now (*cue boooring*).

Hopefully one day next year I'll develop a React SPA to consume the API. I do need to learn React before that, probably.

Used LaTeX
Finally got around to finishing LaTeX version of my CV and merging it into master. I've taken up on designing and building the CV from scratch (i.e. using the `minimal` template) and I've been working on it for over a year, bit by bit. It's not the longest work I've written in LaTeX (that goes to my 50-page HS graduation thesis), but it's definitely the most technically advanced and challenging one, utilizing advanced PDF features such as optional content groups (a.k.a. layers). I'm still on the fence about it being two pages long, but I don't have the heart to chop off enough to make it fit into one.

Takeaways? 
  1. PDF is complex. Like, really.
  2. Browser support for PDF is sucky.
  3. LaTeX can do so much that it is scary. It's almost always underutilized and/or used to build visually appalling stuff.

Care only about the PDF? Here!

Played Chess
Hit 1200 rating at chess.com. It ain't much, but it's honest work.

I've also got a 10-win streak now, so that's nice too.

Tried Polywork as a way to organize my experience
Is it a LinkedIn? Is it a Twitter? No, it's a neat replacement for my personal site.

May become a bit twitter-ish, but below this there are only important™ stuff.
