Blog it forward – Nedyalko Yotov
I will begin with short introduction:
Hi, I am Nedyalko Yotov thank you for reading this blog. I am currently Associate Developer in Net Weaver KM Team @SAP Labs Bulgaria. I am also a Software Engineering student in Sofia University.
I was born in 1992 in the small town of Vidin, Bulgaria. When I was a little child I loved to paint, play football and ride a bike. When I start studying Mathematics in school I start to dream to work numbers, lot of information and to solve difficult problems.
In my high school I was introduced to the word of computers and programming and it changed me a lot. There I met for the first time my big teenage love – JAVA. And I start to learn how the software is really made, not only the coding, but also the whole process of defining, validating and verifying the software and I start a Bachelor Degree in Software engineering.
During second year in University, I applied for Internship Program in SAP. Here is the moment to thank my manager Nedyalko Dobrev for giving me a chance to start my career in SAP. During my Internship program, the whole team and especially my mentor – Velislav Velkov helped me a lot to learn a lot new technologies and helped me to understand that it is not only the everyday tasks that should be done perfect – you should work with collaboration with others and never stop improve yourself technically to be more effective.
In SAP I have an opportunity to learn new technologies, attend to different courses and most important – in SAP I have a chance to meet inspiring, motivated and nice colleagues every day. I build strong friendship with them and we meet, call and write even when we are not at office.
Before couple of weeks I was on the #bestEventEver – SAP InnoJam at CeBIT, Hanover. Thanks to awesome SAP University Alliances Team and Ann Rosenberg for organizing it and for choosing me to be part of it. During the event I met more than 70 students from 15 countries and we create friendships that we least for a long time.
I have also to thank my whole team – TEAM 7 (huang hua, Zoran Lisovac, Valentin Mezev, Leonard Nurnberg, Jaroslaw Zdanowski, Sierra Yang, Quan Xiaotong and Zong Maggie)– You were amazing! For all of the Design Thinking process, 32 hours of coding (using SAP HANA Cloud Platform and SAPUI5) and presentation at final stage, we managed to hold our team spirit high and work together.
Greetings to the other #InnoJammers – continue to innovate and inspire people around you. I hope that we will meet again soon. 🙂
