I'm a fellow, friendly programmer who is really interested in all topics within computer science. I would love to hear about your offers of any kind on any kind of NON-REPETITIVE job that a computer scientist may be helpful with. For now, my main inclination is to become a researcher…

  • Contest Result: Hackathon (Big Data Solutions) (Third Place - Team Leader)

Board of European Students of Technology Istanbul, ITU/Istanbul/Turkey

12/2019

We placed third at this 2 day long hackathon that took place at the Istanbul Technical University. The participating teams were asked to build big data solutions using the state-machine-like system developed by the main sponsor of the event TRLogic called FormicaBox. I, together with the team I led, have built a not-so-complete prototype that helps the user find nutrition from nearby vendors depending on their current needs that are determined by a chiplike theoretical device that may be implanted to their body. Most of the work was conceptual but in the end we had a similar system that proved the possibility of the concept, that also used their FormicaBox platform. We used 100% Java.

  • Course Completion: Web Application Security

Turkish Cyber Security Cluster & BUSIBER, Bogazici University/Istanbul/Turkey

Activities & Hobbies

  •  Participation: STMCTF2020

STM Defense Technologies, Engineering and Trade Inc. / Turkey

10/2020

We’ve placed 30.th out of 130+ teams, it was a fun CTF although we were otherwise occupied for the whole of it.

  •  Participation: KTHack 2020 Hackathon (About Quantum Technologies)

QTurkey, Istanbul/Turkey

10/2020

To summarize, we’ve researched how the teaching materials used by QWorld and QCousins could be improved and provided a demo. Im personally really interested in optimizing contents of courses or teaching materials

  • Participation: Arcelik Hackbot Hackathon

Arcelik, Istanbul/Turkey

07/2020

We were eliminated in the final phase. It started with 100 teams and we were somewhere on the top 10 (Only top 3 were declared). I and my friend Berat together programmed two telegram bots in two different programming languages (Java and Python) that together could offer better help to arcelik customers. We've deployed the bots on telegram, the user would first chat with the bot written in python (click to see code), which would compare the query with the FAQ from arcelik website and yield the top three most similar results. If the user can't be satisfied with them, user would be routed to the other bot written in java (click to see code), The java bot would check the similarities of answers to previously tagged questions and the new question, if the new question is not like any questions before, the question would be routed to a group that consists of arcelik personnel who would answer and tag the question, so that the system keeps getting stronger. The reason we coded it all with 2 different programming languages was to make use of both of their advantages and provide future adaptability. We also had a little project documentation and agile board.

  • My Other Student Club Memberships and Affiliations @ TGU

Turkish-German University, Istanbul/Turkey

I’m connected with perhaps every single student of our university. I’m usually one of the first ones to hear about project groups or club activities that may somehow have something to do with programming, and I’ve been playing leading roles in most of the communication channels of the students. All these things have helped me improve my communication and networking skills. I’ve also made a lot of friends along the way. I’ve been a member of perhaps every single university club and played my part on the foundations of plenty of them. Even after graduation I’m planning to keep staying in contact with the students, and it will be quite easy for me to involve them in any kind of project I may find myself working on in the future. I’ve played administrative and supervisory roles in countless clubs and events. Below is a list of clubs of which I’ve been a member :

  • IEK (Business and Economics Club), TAÜ Gönüllüleri (Volunteers Club), EMK (Industrial Engineering Club), TGU Global Connections, TAÜ Mühendisler (Engineering Club), IEEE TAU, TGU Inscience, InformatiX TAU, ...
