HomeWhiz is a smart home application that allows connecting your smart appliances and other smart devices to your mobile device to control and monitor them from anywhere. I was a member of the back-end team, which developed and designed AWS back-end services for the project.

ADVENT - Network Supported Data Integrated Combat Management System

ADVENT is a next-generation command and control system that responds to the needs of a force-oriented, network-supported operational approach rather than a single ship. I developed the platform library for searching and detecting ships via marine intelligence data and configured the Solr search engine for MySQL and Neo4j databases.


TTSIS & PROTTON are for routing and subscriber management systems for Turk Telekom. I implemented PrimeFaces and JSF for UI components and designed and developed SOAP web services for service applications.
