Hi, I‘m Aleksandar Vacić

I spent 15 years in web development, working from simple personal web pages up to enterprise-level sites. This blog has my web posts dating back to 2003. I lost interest in web around ‘08 and was happy that iPhone appeared at the time to kickstart the Age of Mobile development.

In early 2012 I went full-time with iOS development through Radiant Tap after it was clear that iOS dev is perfect blend of my passions: user experience and efficiently crafted code.

Since then, almost all of the posts are iOS, Objective-C and – since autumn ‘16 – Swift related.

My work

I have created over 70 apps on the App Store, for myself and various clients under Radiant Tap marquee, which has since grown into proper agency.

We offer teaching and training as well as contract work under Standard and Enterprise programs. If you are interested — contact us today.

Community
