who am I?
I was born on 21 March 1971 in Kastamonu. A small town in Black Sea region. We lived in Bursa, Zonguldak, Ankara and finally Istanbul (where I lived majority of my life).
I've completed Istanbul Technical University as an Electronics Engineer, but I've never practiced it. I love programming, besides art, painting, languages, world music, cycling.
I'm running this site to share what I've learned from life and give as much contribution as possible.

My Life in Pictures

I was born in Kastamonu, in 1971 when my parents were both teachers working there. My brother was born in Bursa, in my parents' next job location.
Primary school years in Zonguldak
I've spent my primary school years in Zonguldak, which is an industrial city famous for rich coal mines and steel factories.
We stayed six years there and I've lived a wonderful childhood in those years.
I've completed my high school in Kadikoy Anadolu Lisesi, Istanbul.
I should admit that high school years were not as pleasant as primary school years - as most people feel the same way.
After completing all these years of education. We've founded our own software development company with my brother.
This photo is taken in 1999 in Besiktas Istanbul, our very first office. We could see the beautiful Bosphorus scenery from the window.
