I’ve been coding since 1985 but up until 1990 I didn’t think of selling software because companies in Turkey didn’t know much about the opportunities of using a software.
My first computer programming experience was with Commodore 64 Basic. I branced out to Amiga machines and used Amiga Basic and Pascal. In 1990, while I was still studying at university, I began a part-time job as IT Manager (What can I say about title, I was the only person there knows about computersJ). The company called TETAM, that manufactures air condition canals. This was the first time for me to meet a PC. By the way, I programmed with Quick Basic there for two years. Here is my history;

I believe coding is the easiest part of any software project. I know customer needs to see what he/she will get after coding. As a result I always give importance to analysis and design phases. Here are the phases ..
1. Analyze the situation, determine the needs of the customer.
2. Prepare an Analysis Report that describes the solution to the customer.
3. Design the database and draft forms. Designate the data flow.
4. Prepare a Report to discuss the design with customer.
5. Code the project
6. Test the project
7. Release the project
You'll see, you'll get what you want. Always.
What You See Is What You Get
Hoping to work with you
