What about me ?
When I was little, other than playing childhood games outside, I have been interested in playing video games. Maybe the effect of the video games I played, maybe not, computers have always fascinated me. The curiosity in me about how computer programs are written and displayed on the screen led me to become a Computer Engineer. …and later, later on, I became one and never regret it…
“As a child of the 80s/90s, I consider myself lucky to have personally witnessed the significant change in the use of technology in our lives. Nowadays, the internet and mobile phones play an indispensable role in our daily life, where they were non-popular even not existed in the 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’s 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), Vodafone(Istanbul), and eBay(Gittigidiyor/Istanbul). All of them were great experiences in terms of different company cultures, friendships and technology usages.
Besides everything, I am kinda a tech freak, I love cutting-edge technologies. I specifically follow the latest advancements in mobile technology, computer software, and hardware technologies. I enthusiast in software design, especially web application programming.
Moreover, I like almost every kind of sport. I enjoy playing football and basketball. I like sports in nature as tracking, orienteering, and rafting. Furthermore, I frequently go to fitness. Additionally, I am a big fan of Fenerbahçe.
I am into playing board games like chess, chinese backgammon, and othello(reversi). I am not a master in these games, but trying to be. (especially in othello)
I enjoy watching movies and TV series. I mostly prefer science-fiction films which are elegantly scripted and directed.
Likewise, I also love traveling and exploring beautiful places. I would like to add more travel destinations to the list of places I have visited…
Eating different types of foods is my other hobby. I love tasting interesting things and experimenting with new cuisines. In this sense, I could have been happy to be a gourmet 🙂
Lastly, I enjoy solving puzzles, discussing creative ideas, and brainstorming. I believe smart things make the difference.
