At the age of seven, Vladimir practiced on his first PC keyboard - a piano that he never learned how to play. At 19, he started his first job as a systems administrator for a small graphic design company and he hasn’t stopped playing with servers ever since. Vladimir has a BSc in radio communications and electronics from the Nikola Vaptsarov Naval Academy, where he finished first in his class. He is currently pursuing his master’s degree in information technology. In his free time, he enjoys reading books, driving at high speeds, and breaking machines in order to learn how they work. Above all, he values sharing his knowledge and experience by training others in various courses from VMWare, Microsoft, Linux and Cisco at a local university. Vladimir is proudly working for ECHO as a Linux systems engineer.
