Pavel Tcholakov

Software Engineer


Pavel became fascinated with programming when he discovered BASIC on a Bulgarian Pravetz-16 computer, a PC clone from behind the iron curtain. Since those days, he’s done work on a variety of user-facing and backend systems handling Internet services, finance, and most recently cloud computing, having also earned a couple of degrees in Computer Science from the University of South Africa along the way. These days, he’s just as interested in building teams and helping others learn the black art we call software engineering as he is obsessed with code.
