Dalibor Aksović, currently lives in Belgrade, while he grew up in a small community in the South Banat District. From an early age, he liked to deal with the problems of finding solutions in different situations (problem-solving), so he decided on programming, which I first encountered at the age of 16. He mostly spends his free time surrounded by friends or working on different projects that, mostly due to their uniqueness, attract his attention. He is always open to new ideas and challenges, which he often engages in, motivated by potential new knowledge and skills.
