XS Software experts participate in NBU's project “Preparation of Practitioners in Information Technologies in the Economy of Knowledge”. The program is part of the 2007-2013 Human Resources Development Operational Programs and is aimed at the synchronization of the IT education with IT business needs. The project started on May 15th, 2013 and will end up in December 2014 after the completion of two main stages: methodological and practical.

The methodology includes analyses of best practices with worldwide educational programs and the design of adapted learning by experiencing for NBU students. The second stage is divided in two: real-life development tasks and an internship program. Following the mentoring tradition of the XS Innovation Garage for external game programming experiments, 5 development teams of students and mentors are working on game projects. The internship program is expected to take place in July-September 2014. Thus two types of practical education will be tested - university lab and company on-the-job training that are leading to different aspects of knowledge-practical skills synchronization.

January 2014, Sofia, Business Center Stefan Karadzha. The first public workshop-based university for developers opens its doors. At the end of 2013, the Software University (SoftUni) was found by Svetlin Nakov and XS Software CEO Hristo Tenchev with the idea of setting a brand-new trend in the contemporary education system. Both of them strive for the education to serve the needs of the people and business before the need for administration and bureaucracy of the educational institutions.

Trainings are practically oriented, with daily homework exercises, real-life team projects and tests. Through learning by doing real skills are acquired in addition to the standard theoretical knowledge and professional realization at the labor market is mediated. All lectures, videos, and training materials are posted online for free Internet training. There is an admission-free course starting with the basics of programming that helps the students in their career guidance and counseling while taking their work-life solutions. The SoftUni is partnering with several accredited universities like MT&M Colleague, Varna Free University, etc. and is negotiating international certifications abroad.
