My name is Ivan and I was born in Stara Zagora in 1993. I graduated high school and decided to continue my professional path as a programmer, since I had a strong interest in mathematics at school, but wanted to use the practical side of it. I graduated Informatics in Sofia University in 2016 and started my first job as a Java developer. I really liked this technology at the beginning and since then I try to improve my knowledge there. Having clear paradigms and rules like OOP principles and design patterns, it is a convenient language to build performant and robust applications that run on all types of devices. In 2021 I started getting keen on blockchain technologies and I was pleasantly surprised that Java could be a core technology even in such projects. That's why I joined LimeChain and started exploring the possibilities of mixing Java and blockchain to build the web3 future.
