Ali Özgür

I’m working as Software Development Manager at İstanbul Bilgi University (member of Laureate Universities Network) IT Department. My team at Bilgi is developing and maintaining the in house Student Information System (SIS) and provides operational support to SIS and Moodle LMS.

I’m also managing the PragmaTouch team which develops mobile and line of business applications for different industries.

I maintain and contribute to couple of open source projects and published an open source Git 101 book in Turkish.

I’m the author of the following printed books.

I’m an organized, diciplined, self motivated and productive person. During my professional career I was involved with lot’s of projects in very different industries. I had the chance to work with great people and I liked every second I spent on any single bit of code I’ve written. I love to share what I know or what I think is important with my colleagues. In terms of software development, team work or organizational relations you can name me as a social personality though my wife thinks I’m an introvert who likes to listen to Heavy Metal.

By the way Heavy Metal rulez :smiling_imp:
