About MeProjectsPersonal GalleryHomelab 


Howdy people! Welcome to my web page where I share some information on what I do, what I study, and what I'd like to do in the future. I was born in a beautiful city of Eskişehir in Turkey, in which I've studied till graduating from my Bachelor's study on Electrical & Electronics Engineering. Afterwards, I had my Master Degree on Embedded Systems in Dortmund, Germany. During this period, I contributed to very exciting open-source projects as part-time research assistant, cooperating with well-established organizations such as Eclipse Foundation and Bosch AG. I also received the prestigious the Google Summer of Code grant in 2017 and developed software for Eclipse Foundation during that summer.

Currently, I am employed professionally in an automotive software company in Izmir, Turkey. I do Embedded Linux platform development using Yocto/OpenEmbedded, Android system development, and feature programming using high-level frameworks (e.g Qt, GTK+) and low-level libraries (e.g. glibc, linux libraries, drivers), targeting embedded components. In this web page, you can see some of the things I did on my free time previously and also you could read about what I try to do in order to keep myself updated in the Embedded world.

Book Recommendations

Embedded world is rapidly shifting towards Embedded Linux systems, if not POSIX-based real-time operating systems such as QNX, VxWorks etc. To that end, I strongly think a solid hard/soft real-time experience with POSIX interfaces will prepare one for the embedded world in the general sense. With Yocto emerging, one can combine Yocto knowledge with solid Linux experience, Unix/Posix multi-process or multi-threaded programming, C++ design patterns and frameworks such as Qt in order to develop industry-compliant effective software. I have a bunch of books which I've read, given below are a few of them which I consider the best. In addition to those books, I really like FreeRTOS / VxWorks Programmer's Guide -as a general introduction to real-time systems-, Parallel Programming for Multicore and Cluster Systems (Springer Verlag) and -as a Git fan- Git Pocket Guide (O'Reilly).
