My biggest hobby was video games. Between 1994 and 2002, I used to play various computer games at home and in internet cafes. Especially before I met computers, I used to play games with coins in ATARI halls. But that didn’t hold me back because you weren’t learning anything while playing.
Then I met with internet cafes—at least three people with 56K modem. If there were two people, it would not open. With the advent of DSL, we could access the internet easily. Before the 2000s, I worked as a moderator and founder in IRC channels with XP and 98. I was doing BOTNET as a hobby for Cyber Attacks and Defense Technologies. It was enjoyable 🙂 But it also felt boring.
Subsequently, I worked as a Forum Manager and fashion designer. The reason for disliking this is that, for example, all the texts you wrote with all the backups were flying and deleted due to a HACK or hardware failure. This did not work either.
Subsequently, I shifted my hobby to graphic design and web design. I set up FREE web design and e-commerce sites in the first years. (2002-2007). I attended various national seminars: the IDC IT Security Seminar Series 2008 and other enjoyable meetings. Cyber Attack and Defense Technologies, I met with security companies as I have a security background. Trend Micro, Kaspersky, Eset, Norton.
In 2010 I met a friend of mine from Sweden. We have established a group shopping website in Turkey. I continued this business for 12 months. We have added many new technologies and innovations. It was an enjoyable process. This brother of Iranian origin was from Azeri Turks. The job was important, but I learned a lot about this brother’s culture: food, life, European life, etc.
Then I looked at different job searches—Atasay, UFO Warmer (Green Shoe), News sites, etc. None of them attracted me. I was looking for something new.
I found a company that produces a new innovative insulated wall block in Beykoz. I usually had a prejudice against construction companies. But what is the room 🙂 The CEO of the construction company is a general surgeon 🙂 Doctor. I liked the product very much—Green, eco-friendly, LEED certificate points, environmentally friendly, and innovative. There is styrofoam in the middle, and this wall block on both sides is a building block of pumice, slag, and c30 concrete. Similar to YTONG, but not. After operating in the digital field in this formation for nearly two years, I moved to another medicine and health field.
Meanwhile, the second university, the third university, the wise man, English time, and 30 certification processes were also continuing. (Weekends)
Since then, I have adapted many things that I see as hobbies to my business life. I started to put the things that excited me and enjoyed doing in my daily life. I suggested, helped, and trained.
I established 30 informatics groups for the benefit of the public. I was a pioneer. I set up Whatsapp groups, Facebook, and Linkedin groups. I have reduced information sharing to these groups where trading is prohibited with zero tolerance. In this way, I conveyed what I know to everyone on numerous topics such as SEO, E-commerce, Google Ads (Adwords), WordPress, and Joomla.
In the beginning, I opened groups related to the certificates I received, the school I studied, and the university. It is about the subjects I know. Then we expanded these areas to artificial intelligence.
Today, we are embarking on a new era. Today, I understand better how I have taken the post-COVID world. Digital is critical now. It takes shape here. It gets bigger.
I am studying Advertising at the Third University and learning French, Spanish, or German as a third language. French prevails.
If opportunities allow, I think I to expand my hobby even more :))
