Hey there,

My name is Nicolay Doytchev a.k.a. "lightrush".

I'm currently a senior software engineer on the vehicle software updates team at the Ford Motor Company.

I was a principal software engineer at NortonLifeLock. There I shored up the consumer VPN infrastructure software, built support for migrating and running it in AWS, creating tools and automating a lot of manual processes along the way.

I was a senior software engineer at TD. I was one of the culprits responsible for creating the enterprise-wide SDLC pipeline that took code from git all the way to the cloud, crossing various environments and gates along the way.

I was a software engineer at Research in Motion BlackBerry. I've been a part of the making of BlackBerry 10 and the BlackBerry Runtime for Android as well as BlackBerry's first foray into Android - the BlackBerry Priv.

I was a student at University of Toronto.

I love Monty Python and Java coffee.

I love (I am not a fan of A or B but I love C.)++, it's a real Qtie!

I think React made web development great.

I also enjoy Bashing my lovely GNU/Linux. I love Ubuntu and I think Unity is the best interface it ever had.

I do not love Chalga, but I love electronic music. In fact I even make some myself.

Unfortunately no donkeys can be found here. Sorry.
