I was born in 1976. I graduated from İstanbul Teknik ▄niversitesi, Mathematics Engineering Dept. with a thesis on Quantum Cryptology.
Currently preparing to study cognitive science at Boğaziši ▄niversitesi. I'm interested in how human mind works, how language competence and performance is realized as well as natural language processing.
As for professional life, I've been working for İstanbul Bilgi ▄niversitesi in eMBA project since 2000. The team which I'm a part of is using MS based technologies like Active Server Pages which make me consider Perl as a much better alternative every day ;-) I also work as GNU/Linux instructor for the same university's Linux certification program.
After programming in BASIC (Sinclair Spectrum ZX), C/C++, Java, VBScript, JScript, PL/SQL, T-SQL I've started to learn Perl a few months ago. Since then some part of my brain (ratio changes dynamically and chaotically) is always related to Perl :) (I must admit that it is a pity I was not interested in Perl back in 1994 when my faculty's computer lab. was already running Slackware Linux and there were a lot of Perl documents around)
My office computer runs MS Win 2000 Pro but my home computer rather prefers Debian GNU/Linux.
When I'm not busy coding I voluntarily work as an editor for fazlamesai.net, cazci.com, ileriseviye.org and an open source collaborative translation project at fazlamesai.org/ceviri.
