    It is a SaaS product for designing chatbots visually. It is developed using Typescript, React/Redux, Java, Node.js, Kubernetes, and Istio. I developed the drag-an-drop features of the front end using React and developed the payment back ends with Stripe using Java Spring. In addition to the development, I worked as a development team leader and technical product manager.

  • SORUN Suit (Chat Platform) (Development)

    I developed the most widely used chat system developed in Turkey. It can be connected to the company's WhatsApp, Facebook, and Twitter accounts. It can also work as a webchat. Using this system, companies can connect their chat channels to their call centers.

    I developed the whole system for two years by myself end to end. I developed the back end using Java 8 and Hibernate. For the front-end side, I developed two single-page web apps using React/Redux. On the deployment side, I used AWS with auto-scaling EC2 instances and a serverless MySQL server.
