Pragmatic Pineapple 🍍

About Nikola

Hi 👋. I am Nikola and I run the Pragmatic Pineapple tech blog you are currently reading. My goal is to educate, teach and question the status quo of JavaScript & Ruby.

How? I break down complicated and overlooked JS & Ruby problems into actionable take-aways for beginners and advanced coders. That includes multiple perspectives which encourage my readers to reflect, evaluate and choose a solution that fits. All that explained in simple words to make both languages easy to apply.

My articles have appeared on the first page of HackerNews, and blogs like LogRocket, AppSignal, and Semaphore. I’ve also been featured on newsletters like Ruby Weekly, JavaScript Weekly, and Node Weekly. I republish my posts on and Medium, so you can follow me there if you use those platforms.
