Personal Information / Summary

I studied Civil Engineering in Yıldız Teknik University and I did my MSc on Structural Engineering in The University of Sheffield

I always had a passion for technology, computers and software, so after working in the Civil Engineering field for about 2 years, I changed the area I work.

As of now I am an MSc student in Software Engineering in Boğaziçi University, where I have 4 more courses for graduation.

I am constantly trying to improve myself in the Computer Science field by self study. I have a personal blog at: http://www.tugay.biz where I take notes to mostly myself.

I am familiar / interested in : Computer Networks (Socket programming with TCP/UDP, Protocols such as HTTP, FTP), Operating Systems (Linux, OSX), Low Level Languages (Assembly, C), JavaMySQL (JPA, Hibernate) and Web Development (JSP/Servlets, Spring Framework,  HTML, CSS and JS).

I have a particular interest in documentation and I believe in the importance of it, both in personal life and in business life.

I am also familiar with Git/Svn and software management tools such as JIRABambooFisheyeMaven and Agile Methodologies.

Thank you for reviewing my resumé.  

Objectives

My goal is to work in a friendly environment where I can be valuable to the company with the skills I have and improve myself in the mean time.

With the experience and the knowledge I have, I believe I can be good fit for Java Development and/or Software Test and Quality Assurance positions.
