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.
