What about me ?
When I was little, other than playing childhood games outside, I have been interested in playing video games. May be the effect of the video games I played, may be not, computers have always fascinated me. The curiosity in me about how computer programs are written and displayed on a screen, eagered me to be a Computer Engineer. …and later later on I became one and never regret on it…
“I consider myself lucky by being a child of the 80’s/90’s since I personally witnessed a significant change in use of technology in personal life. Nowadays the internet and mobile phones plays an indispensable role in our daily life, where they were non-popular even not existed in early 90s.”
Becoming a Computer Engineer
I succeed to become a computer engineer by graduating from Computer Engineering Department of Yeditepe University in 2006. After graduation, I decided to extend my academic career with a master degree. Due to my good performance and grades, I was admitted to Computer Engineering Department of Boğaziçi University and received my M.Sc. degree in 2010.
As a software engineer, I have worked for worldwide enterprise companies namely Nortel(Netas/Istanbul) R&D, Vodafone(Istanbul) R&D and Ebay(Gittigidiyor/Istanbul) R&D. All of them were great experiences in terms of different company cultures, friendships and technology usages.
