Hello World!

Hi, my name is Boris Bankov and I am a software developer and gaming enthusiast. I have been working on websites and applications for 10 years. I have participated in European projects and I maintain numerous platforms at the University of Economics - Varna, where I work as a Chief Assistant at the Department of "Informatics".

On this website you can find a little more information about me, about some of the projects I have worked on, as well as a blog section where I publish various opinions and observations on almost everything. For questions, where to find me or to let me know that you have found a forgotten lorem ipsum here and there you can find information on the contacts page.
