About Me

I work with a team of four talented software developers and engineers. We are fully responsible for managing a very big project called FAAL which has many integrations with the various systems including Turkish Aviation Academy Website, Learning Manegement System, Online Exam System and SAP.
Before joining Turkish Airlines, I worked for 'Ulusal Yönetim ve Danışmanlık' consultancy company as a software developer and was lucky enough to help companies for the projects they wanted to develop.
I am truly passionate about my work and always eager to connect with other software developers and business analysts. While I enjoy all aspects of my job, I think my favorite stage of a project is working with the client or business unit leader to understand his or her business objectives. As we go through that collaborative process, the ideas start to flow and that’s always the fun part.
I received both my Master's Degree in Computer Engineering & my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from İstanbul Kültür University.

Master Thesis: New Contouring Approach Based on Virtual Planes in Computer Aided Virtual Sculpting System
In this study, it has been proposed an alternative model for traditional virtual sculpting implementation methods and implementation is made. The complexity of algorithm and consuming of the system resources are determinative for the free-form representation of solid models in computer environments. Rapidly and accurately creation of the contour data is an important problem for the re-creation of solid model after sculpting process. In this study, contour sub-components -which are created by using "virtual plane" instead of a set of rays- are stored in a dynamic data structure. In these calculations, normal and targent vectors are also produced to be used in the next steps of solid modeling. Ability of solving known sample problems and advantages in comparison with actual approaches with regard to performance values of study are shown. In the implementation of the system, .Net C# programming language and OpenGL graphics libraries are used.

  • Any code of your own that you haven't looked at for six or more months
    might as well have been written
    by someone else.

    Eagleson's Law
  • There is not now, nor has there ever been, nor will there ever be
    any programming language in which
    it is the least bit difficult to write bad code.

    Flon's Law
  • Linux is only free
    IF
    your time has no value.

    Jamie Zawinski

    Good programmers write code that
    humans can understand.

    Martin Fowler
  • Talk is cheap.
    Show me
    the code.

    Linus Torvalds
  • Measuring programming progress by lines of code is

    a fast dance on a newly waxed dance floor
    by people carrying razors.

    Waldi Ravens

    as easy to use as my telephone; my wish has come true
    because I can no longer figure out how to use my telephone.

    Bjarne Stroustrup
  • Fine, Java MIGHT be a good example of what a programming language
    should be like. But Java applications are good examples

    C++ makes it harder, but when you do,
    it blows away your whole leg.

    Bjarne Stroustrup
  • Most good programmers do programming not because they expect
    to get paid or get adulation by the public,
    but because it is fun to program.

    Linus Torvalds
  • If Java had true garbage collection,
    most programs
    would delete themselves upon execution.

    Robert Sewell
  • There are only two kinds of languages:
    the ones people complain about
