Hackathon Burgas 2018


ScaleFocus is honoured to support the upcoming Hackaton in Burgas, which will take place at the Bourgas University “Prof. Assen Zlatarov” this weekend (20-22 April). For second year in a row, we are partners of this weekend-long event. This year’s edition will go under the “Sport and Leisure” slogan. The challenge is expected to gather bright ideas and turn them into innovative solutions.

Last year, our CEO Plamen Tsekov honoured one of the best performing teams, which developed applications over the “Smart cities” concept.

We are also strengthening our presence in Bourgas by supporting the establishment of the first IT School in town. The educational institution is is planned to start operations on the 1st of September 2018.

All over 50 participants were mentored by our UI/UX Practice Lead, Georgi Nastev!
