The Android Hackathon is a free working event for developers, designers and testers and anyone with even a little programming experience to build native applications for the Android platform.

Do we need team for join this event? ( •͡˘˛˘ •͡)

Of course, no! If you believe yourself, you can join individual. Or If you love teamwork, let’s make your best team.

What is the aim of Hackathon?

24 hours, teams and an application…
All teams try to create an application for Android platform in 24 hours.

Industrial Training Time!

Ohh!! NO_o!

Holiday is already finished for me. This week, I started my industrial training and it is my first time to work at company. I studied more during the hole semester and continue to study in summer for practice. At the beginning, It was so hard for me because I had to learn the system of business life. But there is one thing, I like, having my own desk and computer. ƪ(♥ ⌣ ♥)ʃ


Yeah! I am proud of my workspace to introduce to you. This is my personal computer, use when I work. Of course, desktop shows my unicorns and child inside. I know I never grow up. I have ladybirds top of the monitor and I believe, they bring luck to me. (^ ⌣ ^)


This is pine cone man. I called like that because it’s body made by pine cone. These mans are on the every stuff’s desk and of course It is mine.☜(゚ヮ゚☜)


This is my workspace. As you can see I worked on Ubuntu terminal and sure, I cheated some codes from left side. ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ


Writing codes on terminal so hard because every misspelling shows errors. I guess I should more practice to learn. (˘˛˘!)

I was also reading  PDFs and e-books, searching on Internet my first week. I tried to learn python programming language which I never see before. I learned codes, tested them during this week. In addition, I tried to learn MongoDB. I must confess learning new information is so hard on my own. My dear instructorssss! I missed you and I promise I’ll listen to your all courses with my eyes wide open. (◕ ¸ ◕)


I changed my desktop background again, because I have lots of wallpapers. Especially, Calvin and Hobbes which I loved this comics.٩(×⌣×)۶ I used Wallbase for wallpapers. This site has high quality wallpaper and I really advise it.

Tomorrow, new workday will start for me like whole employees. ( •͡˘˛˘ •͡)  I hope, I can learn more things and improve myself on computer world.

Happy and sunny Sunday! ♥

Teamwork Rocks!

Hey there,

I miss you so much. I know there are such a long time to share something, again. But this time, I have apologies about it. First of all, you know I am in summer holiday. So, I had a break in computer world for a while. In my city, temperature is high and I cannot breathe easily at this time. (˘˛˘!)

Yesterday, I thought about my whole semester. I did many things this semester. For example, I worked as guide student for prospective students, I was a chairman of ACM-W Bilkent University Women In Computing (BILWIC) Students Chapter and worked in Turkish Informatics Association Student Chapter as a board of member.  (◕ ¸ ◕)

Yes, you right all of them have an impressive name but there is one important key word: VOLUNTEER. Yes, I worked as a volunteer at there and had important abilities by there. I improved myself. I learned to believe in myself, teamwork, how to help people and make a good friendship. Now, I am more self-confidence, strong and hopeful. So, I decided to share something from my activity during my whole semester at college chapter by chapter. \(`▽´)/

Firstly all of photos comes from I and my team friends activities in Turkish Informatics Association Student Chapter. Let’s look! What we did and achieved. ☜(゚ヮ゚☜)


This is our first activity from 28th National Turkish Informatics Congress at J.W. Marriott Hotels. I and other team friends organized a workshop, Creating Applications for Facebook. This activity was very successful and crowded. Lots of students and people who work in computer area were in there.
ƪ(˘ ⌣ ˘)┐


They are my friends from Turkish Informatics Association Student Chapter. We were so happy about this activity’s success. ٩(×⌣×)۶


At the end of the activity, whole board members took a souvenir photo. (~˘ ⌣ ˘)~


A photo from one of our meeting, we discussed about next activity. ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ


This was an our next activity, Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 Seminar at Ankara University. This is also one of best activity like others. (✿◠‿◠)


Of course our activities were not only about technology but also meeting. This was one of dinner with our team. We worked much and deserved a good dinner. This evening was wonderful time for me. (ˆڡˆ)


After dinner, we began to work again for next activity. ♥

Happy wonderful Saturday!

Kisses,
