What a weekend our colleagues had again! On Saturday our colleagues attended the first-ever in-house Old School LAN Party. In all our BG offices, ScaleFocusarians and their friends enjoyed playing DOTA 2, CS, LOL, HALF-LIFE, QUAKE JS, WORMS, HOTS, StartCraft, Clash Royale and FIFA, MK XL, Diablo III on the PlayStation.

The second event on September 15

The first beach hackathon was held on September 15 from 9:30 am on the open ground next to Neptune Restaurant. It is organized by the Municipality of Burgas and the international software development company EPAM.

The competition’s organizers hosted total 7 teams who brainstormed and developed innovative tourism solutions for the region. Within 24 hours, they had to create the base of the application and present it to the noble jury members. The presentations and official ceremony were held on Sunday (September 16).

We are happy to announce that ScaleFocus’ “Hugs for Bugs” (Microsoft) team are the winners and their award is a full weekend on St. Anastasia Island near Burgas. The deputy mayor of Burgas, Ms. Ruska Boyadzhieva presented the award.

„Our team was victorious on the inter-company hackathon in Burgas this weekend, among steep competition from some of the biggest companies in Bulgaria, our guys managed to come out the best, with an application for augmenting the tourist experience in Burgas.”
