I've spent my entire career in video game development. Most recently worked at Ubisoft Sofia on Assassin's Creed: Valhalla and its 3rd DLC - Dawn of Ragnarok, but before that I have also worked with some of biggest game studios on AAA titles including PUBG, Minecraft, Guild Wars 2, Sea of Thieves among others.
Recently I've moved away from traditional game development and I'm now working on bringing the blockchain/crypto world and gaming closer.
In that time, I've led teams and (sub)products of various sizes and various people. I've taken responsibilities for different aspects of product and team management:
- On the technical side - design and architecture, CI pipelines, automation & testing, code reviews
- On the organizational side - planning & roadmap, JIRA management
- On the people side - performance evaluations, 1:1. Keeping the team spirit high is the one I swear by is the most critical factor for success in any organization.
I teach many of the introductory programming courses (Intro to Programming, OOP, Data structures) a course on "Design and Architecture of Game Engines and Unreal Engine" in the University of Sofia. Slides for the latter in English are available online at http://nikoladimitroff.github.io/Game-Engine-Architecture/
I enjoy programming in general and I am happy to talk about all of its aspects.

It was an awesome experience. I got to know the pros and cons. Which gaps to fill etc.

Nikola is very knowledgable in C++ and all the software techniques. We discussed about the templates, type traits, interface stability and etc. Although limited by time, a lot of them we only touched the surface. But it's already very helpful for me to understand the concept. Overall I'll recommend Nikola to everyone.

Nikola has been very helpful in my programming journey so far! He's been patient with my questions and has explained things succinctly when I didn't understand them. His mentorship has helped me understand the gaming industry better, and I would recommend him to anyone else who's an aspiring programmer.
We will send you a quick email if Nikola has new open spots for mentorship, and only in that case!
