“My name is Jovana.”

Usually when I receive an email that starts out like the sentence above, I figure that I’m about to be solicited for something to which my wife would strongly object. Then upon further reading, I realized this email was legit and became intrigued at the request.

“I found your article extremely interesting and would like to spread the word for people from Ex Yugoslavia.”

That was very cool. Everyone enjoys hearing that their writing is valuable to someone – even better if they want to pass it on to their friends!

Jovana found value in our post about web performance tuning. Yeah, one of my favorite topics too.

It is an honor to be asked if someone may translate your article to another language…in this case Serbo-Croatian language.

According to Jovana, “My purpose is to help people from Ex-Yugoslavia better understand some very useful information about computer science.” That is quite a compliment to me (at least that’s my perspective), and it does my heart good to know that other computer scientists around the world could benefit from something I contributed. Me? Scott Price, the balding geeky guy that lives in a remote mountain location is helping computer science? Sounds great, albeit unlikely.

Some quick info about Jovana Milutinovich:

I was born in Yugoslavia, Europe. Former Yugoslavia consisted of now totally independent states like Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Bosnia & Hercezovina, Slovenia and Macedonia, which are all united by Serbo-Croatian language. I’m currently studying Computer Science at the University of Belgrade, Serbia.

Thanks Jovana for considering our thoughts worthy of sharing with your colleagues. We appreciate your professionalism in asking for permission, and we consider it an honor that you read LoadStorm’s blog. I sincerely hope you are successful in your computer science career. We look forward to hearing more about your contributions to our industry. Please stay in touch.
