I work with Blink 42-21 for the last 3 years in developing innovative solutions for their projects. I develop mobile and web apps, digital platforms, serious games and VR apps. It was a challenge for me to join the team to develop the mCommunity app because I have never developed projects for improvement of public services. We spent more of 5 months in joint work with the municipality of Karposh and was great experience to provide solution that has social impact. I’m very happy that the app is used by the citizens and has great impact in the community.
