At Walter Code, we are always on the lookout for innovative talents who drive our projects to new heights.

Our latest feature in the Walter Humans series spotlights Damir Silajdžić, a brilliant software engineer whose work is transforming the landscape of mechanical engineering. Since joining us in early 2019, Damir has been instrumental in developing key projects like Sovelia Sync and a CAD add-in for Autodesk tools. His dedication to improving efficiency, reducing errors, and accelerating time-to-market has made a significant impact on our team’s success.

Let’s dive into the journey of Damir and discover how his contributions are making a difference.

Can you tell us more about your experience working at Walter Code?

My connection with Walter Code started back in March 2018. It took almost a year to find the right project and client where I could contribute my knowledge and skills. I officially began in February 2019 with the Sovelia Sync project, which is a file management system similar to OneDrive, Google Drive, or Dropbox. After a year and a half, we started working on a CAD add-in project for Autodesk tools, and since then, we have been developing and maintaining these projects.

What is it that you appreciate most about your colleagues at work?

The best thing about my colleagues is their great personalities. I’m happy to work with people who are direct, honest, and willing to help each other with both work projects and personal matters.

Are you satisfied with your work-life balance?

Yes, I am. After work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. When the weather is nice, I like to go mountain biking and visit the gym.

Can you tell us more about the project you’re working on?

The project I am currently working on is quite interesting. We are developing a system that makes life easier for mechanical engineers. Our project reduces the time a mechanical designer spends on writing necessary documentation, prevents errors caused by incorrect product information, reduces unnecessary costs and delays, and enables faster time to market.

Can you describe a complex problem you’ve recently solved at work? What tools and techniques did you use?

I successfully developed a system to provide metrics for the usage of all our project features and options. Each project provides its data to a centralized location, where our Sovelia Sync project manages the data transmission and clears previously provided data. With this approach, adding new project data is seamless; we simply direct the data to the centralized collection point without needing to modify the Sovelia Sync project.

How do you ensure the code you write is efficient and maintainable?

We use tools to assess the quality and complexity of our code. Additionally, every pull request is reviewed and tested by all team members before it is merged into the development branch.

What practices or methodologies do you follow to manage and prioritize tasks effectively in your role?

We plan our tasks every three months. Fortunately, we don’t have many urgent hotfix tasks, which allows us to focus on the planned tasks.

How do you stay updated with the latest developments and trends in your field?

Since we work with .NET technologies, Walter Code provides us with opportunities to stay updated with the latest developments from Microsoft by attending the MS Network conference and offering a Pluralsight account with tutorials where we can learn and get familiar with new trends.

How do you approach learning a new technology or programming language that is required for a project?

The first step is to get the official documentation or tutorials for the technology we need to learn. Additionally, we use our Pluralsight account to check tutorials for the required technology.

What strategies do you use to ensure good collaboration and communication within your development team?

Most of our development team is based in the Mostar office, so we communicate directly face-to-face. This approach has proven to be the best practice, as it allows us to discuss, design, and brainstorm possible solutions for our tasks efficiently.


Damir’s story is a testament to the power of innovation and dedication in the field of software development. Through his work, he has exemplified what it means to streamline processes and enhance productivity for mechanical engineers.

At Walter Code, we are proud to have Damir as a part of our team, and we look forward to the continued advancements and successes that lie ahead. Stay tuned for more inspiring stories from our Walter Humans series, as we continue to highlight the exceptional talent that drives our company forward.
