Pi Squared ⇔ Daniel Tsvetkov
I do computer stuff, run, and run side projects about computer stuff.
I enjoy physics, astronomy, science in general. I like to go to competitions and hackathons of various sorts, meet interesting people, exchange crazy ideas and meet again one day somewhere in the world (happens all the time). I have many ideas, theories and views about the world and that's why I have this blog.
Pi Squared because when I was small I loved reading Murderous Maths books. In one of them, they explained how π² it is not frequently met in formulas and since then I am a fan.
I write some of my posts in Bulgarian because sometimes I need to express my frustrations in my own language.

JPMorgan Code for GoodLondon
16 - 18 November 2012 Competition
A hackaton-style competition called J.P. Morgan Code for Good. Together with a team (from my old school) we had to code an application for Nature Conservacy in about 24 hours from scratch. Our idea was to create a web app where everyone can take challenges to help the environment - alone or with friends. The code for the application is public in a github repo.
Google Android Camp London
12 - 18 August 2012 Camp
My first London visit was accompanied by incredible journey through Google offices, a LOT of coding while learning the Android platform, lots of food and amazing people. That's what Google Android Camp was about. Oh, and my team (called "Random" bizarrely, the name was not even chosen by me!) won first place. We made an application for cooking with recepies but with the subtle difference that it dictates the recipes and you can voice control it (sort of).
Физици Филми ("Physicists Films")
2007 - 2012 Project
During high school together with my classmate Alexander Lalev we made documentary movies about physics and we called our project "Physicists Films". It demonstrated science as we saw it, outside of the classroom boundaries. The films were uploaded by us for free as we believe that knowledge must be free and everyone should benefit from it. We presented the movies in schools, conferences and competitions, most notably the Euro-Expo Sciences 2010 in Moscow. It surely was great fun and we are looking forward to continue our project one day.
International Astronomy Olympiad Crimea
29 October - 14 November 2007 Competition
Amazing journey to Crimea peninsula where the XIIIth International Astronomy Olympiad was held. We traveled by train for three days where we were solving problems, getting to know each other quite close (ha-ha) and enjoy big walks in Kiev. The nature in Crimea was astonishing just in the middle of the autumn and the competition was quite fierce. However we god one first place, one second and two bronze.
