Atanas Kumbarov's Website

Atanas KumbarovHi, it seems that somehow you have arrived on my website. My name is Atanas Kumbarov and I work as a software developer. I am married and I live in Stockholm, Sweden with my wife, my son and my family. I was born in Kochan, Bulgaria on the 5th of November 1985. It is where I grew up and went to primary school. In 1999 I moved to Blagoevgrad where I attended the Secondary School Of Foreign Language “Akad. Lyudmil Stoyanov”. After my graduation I continued my education in a number of institutions some of which are Mannheim University of Applied Science, Germany (BSc in Electrical Engineering), Stockholm University, Sweden (BSc in IT & Communications Science) and Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden (specialization in Communications Design) among others.

Currently I work as a “build and test engineer” at COMSOL though about 70% of the work is pure programming and most of the rest is system and network administration. I have also worked as teaching assistent in programming and database methodology at the Stockholm University. Besides that I worked at restaurant Undici in downtown Stockholm during my studies. I have also had a number of minor jobs during my time in Germany and in Bulgaria.

As a software developer I have skills and knowledge of a vast number of tools, technologies, techniques and computer languages. Some of these include but are not limited to Java, C/C++, C#.NET, Pascal, Python, PHP, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, XML, XSLT, various “dialects” of SQL, Bash and others. MS SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, MS Access and other database management systems. I am seasoned Windows and Linux user and lately I have been working with Macintosh as well. As a result of my daily tasks at work and my own projects this list is continuously growing. My favorite computer languages are Java, C#.NET, PHP and Transact-SQL.

I have many interests besides IT. I like mountaineering, photography, fishing and other outdoor activities. I am also interested in medieval history and comparative religion (primarily in Islam and early Christianity). I am fan of Formula 1 and I don't miss a race. For many years now I have been interested in particle physics, astrophysics, cosmology, space exploration and space travel. At certain points of my life I have been member of the Planetary Society and of the National Geographic Society. I also participate in different BOINC projects.
