“I love ELSYS” Quotes From DevriX Team

Ignat Georgiev, Backend Developer

ELSYS taught me how to learn by myself and find original solutions, without the need for anyone to look over my shoulder nor suggest answers. To me, ELSYS is the only school that teaches you how to think and act independently in your early school years.

Alex Dimitrov, Creative Lead

Meeting Mario Peshev as my ELSYS teacher has been a pivotal point in my personal and professional development. Mario motivated me to take more interest in what we studied. So after my internship at DevriX, when he proposed to start working together, I did not think twice. ELSYS helped me acquire some really valuable IT knowledge and skills that are rarely taught in other schools. Most of all, I learned how to think like a developer.

Emil Docev, Backend Developer

ELSYS, along with DevriX, gave me the perfect opportunity to start my professional growth at the age of 17. Now I haven’t even started university yet but I already have one year of professional experience behind me. I do owe a lot to this school! I did not just learn how to code and make sites, I learned how to behave, manage my time and resolve problems. Now I know that overcoming the most difficult ones brings the highest satisfaction.

Bojidar Valchovski, Junior Technical Lead

ELSYS gave me a head start in my professional career by teaching me the skills set required to handle complex technical tasks and logical thinking processes. Also, while in 12th grade, I met Mario Peshev, who invited me to join DevriX as a Junior Software Developer right after my graduation.

In my job today, my solid background helps me tackle complicated scenarios, working on high-scale WordPress platforms serving hundreds of million unique monthly page views and utilizing bleeding-edge technologies to keep up with the industry standards. I would recommend ELSYS to anyone who is looking for a stable career in the IT industry. I am a Junior Technical Lead now and given the chance, I’d love to mentor ELSYS students and help them in their professional growth.

Todor Manolov, Backend Developer

ELSYS is a great starting point if you want to develop your personal skills for the IT industry. Its unique methodology gives solid knowledge in various technical areas so that you have a choice with your career. And even though the teachers (Mario Peshev was one of them, in my case) would always be there for you to help you out, they won’t babysit you but make you think and understand how and why things work.
