My name is Suleyman Cabir Ataman. I want to write about coding and beyond in this blog.

I was born in Malatya, Turkey. I started coding with the QBasic classes we took at high school, and I literally fell in love with coding. After spending some time with Fortran, my older brother (who was studying Electronics/Communication Engineering at the time) advised me to learn C instead of QBasic or Fortran. From that point on my life took a break. During my high school years, I had an extraordinary interest and curiosity towards programming and it became one of my two passions along with music. In addition to C, I studied and coded in a lot of different languages including C++, PHP, Visual Basic, Java, J#, C#, D, JScript, JavaScript, Python, Go, Scala etc. I have started coding in C# almost after it has been invented, and it is still my primary programming language.

After high school, I enrolled in the department of Management Information Systems at Boğaziçi University (Istanbul) with a nation-wide ranking among 1.5 million students and earned merit based scholarship. I had the opportunity to take courses from distinctive professors about computer science. During my carrier, I took part in countless large, medium and small-scale projects.

I enjoy learning new programming languages and I try things on as many different platforms as I can. In short, programming is more than a profession for me, it is also a passion, a hobby. I enjoy learning and working on projects for myself.

I am also into music. I play baglama/saz, oud, guitar and several other musical instruments. I research music and its theory, as well. In addition to my Bachelor’s Degree related to computer science, I have had a Masters Degree in Istanbul Technical University Turkish Music MA program and have a PhD Degree in the Musicology and Music Theory Doctorate program.

I currently live in London, UK. I am married and have a son.
