Are there any Bulgarians in here working in a role where you have to gather software requirements? Or anyone working with a Bulgarian company doing that?
you mean working specifically for gathering requirements? or as part of the development process?
ljrrocgjr either would be fine, as long as the person has been/is doing so.

Anyone off to bansko in June?
I might be there in the last week
Thinking about it โ€ฆ
Thinking about it too, keep getting very mixed reviews of the place
I was there 2 weeks ago, I mean like - itโ€™sโ€ฆfineโ€ฆ
I'll probably be back in July
I'm there now, might well be back in July
jzprtypvuzgkckqz we did too but weโ€™re enjoying it. Depends what you want from it
For us, mountains, fresh air, cheap luxury accommodation and a couple of decent supermarkets was enough
I think it's a tough place to be single
A strong community i guess. I know i'll enjoy the mountains, the village feel and the price
It is diabolical for dating. Source me.
(And also seconded by another girl who lived there earlier this year)
ludxzrdaelzqggbt join Coworking Bansko if youโ€™re looking for a strong community ๐Ÿ™‚
I do be a member
I heard the coworking scene is great but also read that it can be dead
can confirm in May it was more quiet last year (post ski season, but still too cold for summer people), but during the ski season this year it was very much alive. Iโ€™ll probably visit again this summer, Iโ€™ve heard the coworking scene is very much alive in the summer
Nestworking was very nice
There's some huge nomad festival or something happening this summer too
Bansko nomadfest. Thatโ€™s what I may be back for. Itโ€™s by the Bansko Coworking lot
For a couple who enjoy each other's company a lot, and cook at home a lot, and like hiking, it's been very good
Better when aijxsgfiknv was here obv, but luckily we have backup friends too
Iโ€™m glad I didnโ€™t fall into the โ€˜backup friendโ€™ bucket
I donโ€™t see myself attending / paying attention to a single nomad talk
And I even have friends speaking lol
However, that applies to basically every conference I ever go to.
Bansko will be busy again from nomad fest onward
So even if you don't come to the conference
I have never cooked in Bansko I just eat 2-4 times every day
I need to be in Edinburgh from the closing weekend; so itโ€™s unforch the only time I can be there
ziiebapvvwuwnlez that's usually the right way to approach these things
It's actually busier in the summer than winter, I think last august Coworking Bansko hit 120 people instead of 110 in the winter
But it's slow and productive time right before and right after ski season for a couple months
I've been coliving with a vet nomad who has done 2 summers in bansko and LOVED it, but also read things of people saying it's nothjing but moody bulgarians. I'm already sold on christmas in bansko, but unsure on a summer trip too
The customer service isn't like the west, they don't feel obligated to be on and excited
But you still get good service and food
I feel like I'll be avoiding winter
Drunk brits and russians
Skiing tho
Yeah i've never skiied and I can afford a lot of lessons and shit there, unlike say the rest of europe which is ยฃยฃยฃยฃ
Actually turns out anywhere in Europe is almost free compared to the US
If you're coming to ski, Jan feb march is best
I did it in March / April
well shit where do i spend xmas?
You can still come for Xmas it's just the mountain isn't great until early January and march is the best time so If you're limited to 90 days you might not want to leave yet
April is nice and empty but the snow turns into slush as the weather warms so it's hard to say how much good time you'll get

Hello, everyone :yellow_heart:.

I bought early bird tickets to Bansko Nomad Fest 2022. Unfortunately I will be not able to attend to the event because my summer plans changed. So I am selling for the same price that I bought. The organizer said that would be ok to change the name in the ticket.

If anyone is interested, let me know.
Ah darn, I already just got one
I wish I could go as well :)

I'm considering moving to Bansko in about 2 weeks but I'm seeing a lot of mixed messages about how the place is in the summer.

My concern is that it's going to be dead and way too quiet for my liking. I know there is nomad fest in June but if I go I plan to be there from mid May to August.

Have any of you been in Bansko during this time of the year?
It will be quiet at first. There are people around, you'll for sure want to join a coworking, but it won't get busy until Nomadfest
then people will stick around until september when it starts to cool off
July/August is peak time
When does it start to get busy again after September? Was planning on going on November but if it will be empty then I could wait
January is when the big crowds roll in
The ski season starts mid december
Some people come right for the beginning of that but many will spend the holidays with their families and then come after, and also anyone bound by 90 day rules would be happier spending Jan Feb March
Thanks for the info U01CCV6SPS6.
bvhouipkhiopabti iโ€™m planning to be there in June too, so you wonโ€™t be the only one ๐Ÿ˜„
naezqckdeycpt Good to know:) I'm thinking about Varna as an alternative. Have you been or researched it?
I haven't. My main interest in Bansko is the nomad community there. I might stay through Nomad fest but then I need to be in SEA Jul-Sep
for what it's worth I will probably be there in July and then again in January
I'm now thinking of going in January, so see you there man!
Iโ€™ll be in Bansko in June as well. Iโ€™ll be taking the train from Sofia cuz I love trains. Arriving on June 4th. I don't care if it's dead ๐Ÿคฃ I just want to hike. And in the mountains, the less people the better!
Is it okay to book accommodation for a month in Bansko on Airbnb or is there a better way?
Airbnb is the most expensive way, you can check www.banskonomadapartments.com/, also can just find apartments and guest houses on google maps and message them directly on whatsapp
Anyone here have any experience working from Betahaus in Sofia? How is it there?
I have been working there for 7 years. Overall top experience. They have 2 locations at the top city Center - one near to the Sofia university and the other one on Slaveykov square.

I like more the slaveykov square venue since it has a top roof terrace with amazing view.
Thanks U01FGLC7CAC. I'm planning on checking them both out.
I did a few days at Betahaus and a few days at Puzl and ended up just using the free Puzl rooftop cafรฉ last summer
but they're all great
Thanks U01CCV6SPS6. I'll look into Puzl as well.
"Too quiet" is not really something in our community. At the moment we are 80+ nomadic members and this is our lowest season.
Most people complain that there is too much going on, not too little ๐Ÿ™‚
Anyone else planning to go to Bankso from Sofia on Monday and want to share a ride?
Great resource, thank you U01CCV6SPS6. I was just looking for accommodation at the moment.
