Hello,
my name is Eralp Bayraktar24yo and this is my resume/cv

About Me

I've started coding with Visual Basic 6 in 2004, since then it has been my passion. I have moved to C++ in high school and I coded games directly with DirectX API. I've built user interface and game engines from scratch. I also had interest in electronics, so I combined my skills to build wireless circuits with PIC16F84A. Nothing is given to me on silver plates, I find it insolent to expect someone to teach you in this era where you can learn everything on the internet.
