I am usually working on several things at a time or affiliated with more than one organization. This list contains current ventures and some of the more interesting previous ones.
Shoes 41 Plus
Shoes 41 Plus is niche oriented business selling ladies shoes with sizes EU 41 and up, which are very hard to find in Bulgaria. We’re also not shy to sell to men who prefer ladies shoes!
Open Technologies Bulgaria
Open Technologies Bulgaria, Ltd is a company I founded in 2009 which mainly does open source consulting for some local clients and QA services to Red Hat, Inc. It’s also an authorized Red Hat re-seller in Bulgaria.
Red Hat, Inc. is the largest enterprise Linux vendor as you probably know. I used to work for them as an employee and still continue to do so as a contractor. My main responsibility is making sure Red Hat Enterprise Linux (and some other products) get to customers without too many bugs and behave as quality software. I’m highly biased towards all Red Hat products but a) they didn’t fail me once and b) I know how much hard work is done into making these products kick ass.
Difio was a service targeted at developers who use open source packages and libraries. It shut down on Sept 10th 2014.
One Laptop Per Child Bulgarian Chapter
OLPC was a project to build an entirely new laptop device and software for the children in developing countries. I was a co-founder of the Bulgarian chapter of this project. While the upstream project delivered a hardware and a software platform it failed rather miserably. Our local chapter didn’t get much support and gradually ceased operations.
