About Me

Hello, I’m Bilal, engineering manager who has senior full-stack web development experience. I’ve built and helped teams building pixel-perfect web sites and apps in reliable architecture. Started programming in 2006, working in the field professionally for about 12 years now. I’ve led web development teams for over 6 years. Currently living and working remotely in Turkey for 9 years.

I’ve been proudly using WordPress in a huge number of cases that clients and companies need, since I started my first professional journey in 2012. I started testing and using WP even before.

I’m the father of two beautiful girls. Love spending time and traveling with them.

This is the first version of my website/blog. I’ll be continuously improving and adding content and features here.

    • Anything like from my home to my daily work
    • Maybe that’s why I love lists, especially the ordered ones (<ol>)
  2. I respect creative designers a lot
  3. I like butterflies only if they are far away from me
  4. Don’t have a TV and I almost never watch or read news, but I’m still aware of what’s goin’ on around somehow
  5. I like to have only two color sets of goods at most: Navy Blue & Black/White
    • Clothes, watches, shoes, couches, phone, car, bag, anything…
