George Mateev moved from his home town Pleven to Sofia in order to study “Computer Science” in Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”. In his first year at the university, he joined Telerik Academy’s professional program for software engineers to combine theoretical knowledge with hands-on practice and landed his first job as a software developer even before graduating from the Academy.
While studying “Computer Science” at university, Victor Metodiev decided to join Telerik Academy. His aim was to broaden and build on top of his programming skills and to kick-start a career as a software engineer. His efforts paid off soon. Only a week after graduating from Telerik Academy, Viktor started working as a full-stack developer in the Bulgarian software company Grafixoft.

Kalin graduated from First English Language School in Sofia and then majored in “European Studies”. At the age of 28, he was already a founder and CEO of an esports startup but realized that the lack of coding skills and experience would greatly impede his future professional development. The way forward? Kalin joined Telerik Academy Alpha, training program for software engineers and just a day after successfully completing the program, he started working at Tick42.
Tung, 24, has a degree in Finance and Accounting and work experience in data processing and accounting. Deyan is 32, proud father of two daughters and has wide experience in business process outsourcing. Both Tung and Deyan had no programming experience prior to joining Telerik Academy.
