I am İdil, a woman studying Computer Engineering who is a passionate learner with a mind full of music and literature. I started my degree as I was in love with Calculus and wanted to learn more about what exists behind the computer programs that we use everyday.
I love participating tech events such as conferences and workshops. I also write about my experiences in these events on my blog.
I created a network for the women who are interested in technology and tech events in Turkey to create a more diverse community by engaging with each other through the help of the events shared in the group and the social media.
I am a mentor in the Django Girls community where we try to teach women about coding through a one-day workshop. You can check here for further information.
I will be a part of the organization team for the upcoming Women Techmakers event in March, 2019. You can get more information from here.
When I started the university, I did not know anything about coding. I felt like everyone was one step ahead of me while trying to keep up with a new class. After I started to feel much more confident and motivated about the classes, I took a look behind me and realized that I was not the only one who experienced such things throughout their degree. Therefore, I wanted to write about what I had learned and overcome while studying in the Computer Engineering department as a woman. I started by writing my first blog post in here about my dreams and goals.
I believe that the world of technology is in the need of a diverse community, and I know that there are people out there who still don’t believe the fact that women also belong to the field of technology. Because of this reason, I will try to oppose the ones who are against women in technology by writing articles related to this specific subject.
You can also send me an email to contact me.
Join me through this journey of breaking the stereotypes and learning new things about technology!
