I’m Batıkan Senemoğlu, a self-taught software developer currently working at one of the most successful and thriving startups in Turkey.
I studied Computer Programming at the Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University in Çanakkale, where I grew up. Though the time I started developing precedes my formal education.
I began my career editing ASP scripts when I was 13. My fascination with the open-source community began when I started exploring popular PHP scripts such as PHPNuke and SMF for an amateur gaming project with my friends. The concept of open-contribution and progress enchanted me and I knew in an instant about what I wanted to do in life.
After graduating from college, I freelanced for a while mainly on web projects. I started working in a local company developing a website about online hotel reservations. I gained a lot of knowledge about Elasticsearch during my work there.
I decided to move to Istanbul to challenge myself and to work in more complex projects that required a different approach, being able to handle load in an efficient way.
