Today I am especially happy to announce that we have officially established the first and only Cluster of Information and Communication Technologies in Burgas. It is no coincidence that today is the official day of the Bulgarian programmer. October 4th is a professional celebration of specialists in computer technology, information technology and automation. The birthday of John Atanasoff who is accepted as the “Father of the Computer” is on October 4, 1903.
This date was chosen as a holiday for the Bulgarian programmers. “Cluster Information and Communication Technologies – Burgas” will work actively to encourage support and develop cooperation between all companies, educational institutions and state institutions in the field of information and communication technologies to create favourable conditions for their development, increase their competitiveness at national and international level.
