Spring is the best season for visiting Ohrid, if you ask me. Sunny days, beautiful weather, many locals and tourists roaming in the streets and oh yes, that amazing view of Ohrid Lake. These are some of the perks of organizing a conference and hackhaton here, for…

Storyteller that is Villu, made me loose track of time, when the phone buzzed reminding me that I need to head to Garage48 HUB for their Saturday’s Tech Fair + Waffles. It was a real cool showcase of tech startups surrounded with amazing startup enthusiasm and…
