European Liberties Platform Facelift

Change is great, as I mentioned in the conclusion of my previous post on the blog. This year started with yet another change: we updated the design of the European Liberties Platform. European Liberties Platform is an independent watchdog working to inform and mobilize citizens for the protection and enjoyment of human rights for all. We created the Liberties website about one year ago, and it has been one of my personal favourites eversince. No…


This Is How We Do: Agile For Small Distributed Teams

In some of my earlier blog posts I have already touched the topic of using Scrum as a project management framework and me becoming a Certified Scrum Master this summer.

After an hour of drive we arrived to Camping Gradina, a relatively unfrequented shore of the Burgas Bay (compared to the rest of the tourist-packed Bulgarian coast).
