About the author



Welcome to my blog. My name is Akis Mparekas. I am a freelance web developer from Greece and I have been involved in SEO, Website Migration (transferring content from a site, eg blogger to WordPress), website optimization, and web scraping (extracting content from one or more sites) for years.

At the same time I am taking my first steps in game development (unity) and animation (blender). I also create cool stuff, either for work or for fun. When I have time, I write tutorials and I blog.
