About Me

Howdy! My name is Stanimir Stoyanov, a backend web developer. I am 27 years old and I currently live in Varna, Bulgaria.

My career started few years ago in 2013 and I was lucky to have one of the best mentors ever: Marin Atanasov. Yep, he did have a lot of feedback and improvement requests during my trial and training, but I really appreciate his effort to make me a good coder.

I really love finding bugs, and most of everything to squash them! I also love coding challenges and enjoy learning something new every day. I have a few patches merged in the WordPress core and several PR's that landed in Jetpack. I volunteered at WordCamp Sofia 2016 and I plan to participate in the next issues. I am co-organizer of WordCamp Varna 2017, WordCamp Sofia 2017 and the local Varna WordPress meetup, and I gave a talk on the January 2017 meetup.

I am happily married and proud father of a son. You can see us on the background.

Interests and Hobbies

I actually don't have a favorite hobby, because I try to spend as much time as I can with my family. We have long walks every weekend and we really enjoy the time we spend together.

Watching my favorite team Bayern Munich ( Mia san mia ) is one of the things I like doing most. Actually I am into various types of sports, but football ( soccer ) is my top one.

Cooking has always been my passion, and I feel really well in the kitchen, preparing something yummy for my family. To be honest, we rarely have the perfect dinner :)

Our little coder
