Principal Software Engineer at Sahibinden com which is the largest online classifieds and e-commerce platform in Turkey. Avid learner of new technologies. Blogger, speaker and instructor.

I have been developing applications for almost a decade. My first love is Java and I'm also a huge fan of Spring framework. I also like Groovy and I'm currently flirting with Python.

Relational Databases and Elasticsearch are my main interests in Data Store Systems ecology. I prepared Elasticsearch in Action and Getting Started with Elasticsearch courses to share the love. I taught Elasticsearch to more than 2000 satisfied students.

I love giving tech talks when I get the opportunity. I gave talks on Unit Testing, SonarQube, Google Guava, Docker and Spring Boot.

I have a MSc degree from Sabanci University where I worked on Data Mining, specifically focused on Periodic Pattern Mining.
