While working at Dogan Online, my last project was architecting and managing the yenibiris.com recruitment web site. After the success of the project, a new company was established.
I was responsible for managing of Product Development (eight members), Software Development (eight members) and Systems Management (two members) teams, estimating and purchasing hardware needs for applications.
Under my management Yenibiris has won “Altin Orumcek 2007” award for its design and usability.
The site runs on eight IIS web servers, two SQL Server 2005 Database servers and five mail servers load balanced with Citrix NetScaler.
Other than management, part of my responsibilites included, gathering the business requirements from other departments and external customers, measure them with the existing product status and create technical specfications. While working with the software development team we were using Agile Development methodologies and I also had the role of SCRUM Master and created the workflow between software department, product team and Q&A team. With this responsibilites, in each iteration, I was also creating and managing the project plan.
In Yenibiris we were using, nUnit for unit testing, SVN as source control (we switched from SourceSafe), nAnt and MSBuild for build and deployment. Also we used CruiseControl.Net for Continuous Integration.
My journey with Yenibiris has started with 200 customers and 20,000 page views per day and ended with 8,000 active customers and 1,500,000 page views per day with a successful running infrastructure.
