About Me

You got this far, so assuming you (dear reader) are interested, below is bit more information about me...

I am Ventsislav (but prefer “Ventsy”) Popov and since some time ago, I started working for Microsoft as a Technical Evangelist. I am extremely keen on technology - probably the most common thing many of the readers would say about themselves :)… Nevertheless, I’d like to mention it, just to be clear on that, I not only put my pragmatic reasoning in what I do, but my “heart” as well. My latest focus is around Windows Azure, Windows Store Apps development and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM). I try to learn, to implement, and to test stuff concerning any of these topics. This helps me pass the knowledge to fellow developers and ISVs operating in my region. I love public speaking (when I have something useful to share :), I am a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) and appear every now and then on technical conferences, university courses and dev community gatherings. I enjoy working, talking to and sharing with people, so… I am not too much of a typical single player, do-it-myself, control-freak geeky guy...

My side and past experience is also with APS.NET/MVC, MS SQL Server, MS SQL Integration Services, Oracle DB, and a little bit of iOS development. It is coming from projects in goverment administartions, B2B solutions and line of bisuness applications I've been working on throughout the years...

What’s next?! No idea, but I hope to be part of it :)...
