Some years ago Bulgaria was recognized as the "Soviet Silicon Valley" - a center that for many decades supplied hardware and software to the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.

Over the last decade, Bulgarian software specialists have gained a worldwide reputation of talent and competence. The number of Bulgarian developers working successfully in the international IT industry demonstrates the dynamism and potential of the Bulgarian software sector. Subsidized during the communism era, this sector is currently booming despite the major difficulties which Bulgaria is experiencing in its painful transition to capitalism. Thus, the professional field of information technologies is becoming ever more attractive to Bulgaria's young generation, especially among college and university students.
