about

Hi there!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m a software developer living in New York. After studying Computer Science at Sabanci University in Turkey, I moved to the U.S. on a Fulbright scholarship and received a M.S. degree from Georgia Institute of Technology with specializations in machine learning and software engineering.

I’m passionate about technology. I enjoy reading about software development, marketing and startup companies. Here are some of the interesting things I’ve done in the past:

  • Moved to New York, working on Facebook for iOS
  • Moved to San Francisco to join Facebook, working on Instagram for Android
  • Moved to London to join a startup, Lightbox, as an early employee. Lightbox got acquired by Facebook!
  • Co-founder of GrupGuru, a personalized daily deal aggregator (Turkish)
  • Worked at Turkcell Technology on recommender systems, developed Turkcell’s “Online Islemler” application for Android based phones
  • Interned at Adobe as a software engineer, was part of Adobe Illustrator team in Silicon Valley
  • Contributed to an open-source project called OpenMRS which was funded by Google’s Summer of Code program
  • Featured on Turkish newspapers and magazines such as Hürriyet, RadikalVatan and Aktuel; had a live TV appearance on KanalTurk
  • Co-founder of counter-strike.gen.tr and csmerkezi.com websites in 1999, a daily updated Turkish blog about Counter-Strike that had 2,000 daily unique visitors

Web and mobile application development are among my current professional interests.
