My experience

Early years

I started learning BASIC programming language on GW-BASIC (?) and QBasic (?) when I was 12 years old. My first computer was an IBM PC clone with 386SX CPU, 2MB memory and 40MB hard drive.

In 1997, I developed and launched a BBS (?) with RemoteAccess BBS (?) software on my i486DX2-66 PC with a 33.6K modem.

I started accessing to internet with a dial-up connection later in 1997 and became interested in technology stack of Web and IRC (?).

I installed a Linux distribution (Slackware) (?) to my computer for the first time in 1998.

A year later, in 1999, I started programming websites with PHP 3 and MySQL 3.

Launching and running my first company (2000-2002) (Istanbul)

In the summer of 2000, right after graduating form high school, I launched my first startup: a web hosting company. I leased a dedicated server with CPanel3 (?) from VDI.net. A couple months later I leased Cobalt RAQ4 (?) servers which had ASP support on Linux platform through Chili!Soft ASP software and I started offering ASP hosting to my clients. In less than a year, I grew customer base from zero to nearly a thousand clients and thousands of websites.

Launching and running an e-commerce company (2002-2010) (Istanbul)

In 2002, I started learning and experimenting with e-commerce by selling products on eBay. Later in the same year, I launched an e-commerce startup. I built several e-commerce websites using the osCommerce (?) software. I successfuly ran and grew the company to 35 full-time employees and over $1M annual revenue.

Director, Software & Product Development, Mynet.com (2010-2015) (Istanbul)

In 2010, I joined Mynet.com as a software developer. I developed high performance websites which served millions of visitors and billions of pageviews per month. I got promoted several times and eventually started running product and software development teams. I left the company in 2015 when I was a director for product and software development.

Independent Consultant (2015 - ...) (New York)

In fall of 2015, I moved to NYC and I started working as an independent consultant to some very exciting startups in New York.
