About Darko Miletic
Darko Miletic has been enchanted by computers ever since he saw ZX Spectrum 48K back in 1985. From that moment his only goal was to learn as much as possible about these new contraptions. That dedication eventually led him to work as a part of the editorial staff of Serbian computer magazine "Personalni Racunari" where he had a regular column about Microsoft Office. At the same time he studied Mechanical Engineering at the Belgrade University but decided he liked designing computer programs more than designing machines. In 2004, he moved to Argentina and soon started working with e-learning using various web technologies and, as of 2008, his focus is entirely on the Open Source Learning Management System, Moodle. He also led the development of IMS Common Cartridge v1 support for Moodle (1.9 and 2) which is now part of standard Moodle release. Currently, he is working as chief software architect in at Loom Inc. where he leads the development of Loom. Loom is the Managed Open Source LMS developed specifically to provide a personalized, comprehensive, e-learning experience. It merges the benefits of Open Source technology with the reliability of enterprise support, the dynamic scaling of cloud hosting, and power of customization. It offers complete services including content development, implementation management, faculty and administrative training, and custom programming needs. It is dedicated to developing products and services such as Weaver that are focused on utilizing the data with the LMS to support student retention, to facilitate faculty performance, and to bring about learning outcomes that maximize the success and satisfaction of our clients. In his spare time, Darko tries to promote electronic books, works on few open source projects, translates SF stories from Serbian to Spanish, and reads a lot.
