Minimal Group - Software Engineer
Software Engineer Sep 2014 - Aug 2015 1 yr
My 1 year of work experience in Minimal Group was a great time. I learned so much about IT stuff, working in a startup environment with a small team, working hard and doing all these distinct stuff such as planning social media activities for a week, product catalogue refinement, Wordpress development, using Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform to build all sorts of different Web projects and so on.
We were mainly focused on two projects at that time, Terzii which was an ecommerce web site focused on clothing, built on top of NopCommerce, using ASP.NET on the background and hosted on Azure and Aradolu which was started as a side project, then it became the main attraction. It was an another ecommerce platform with a focus on organic & healthy foods & self care products. It was hosted on IdeaSoft.
When doing all these different kinds of things in Minimal, I discovered that my passion lies with computers, web, coding and engineering. Finding solutions to many diverse problems using technologies, learning all the time and applying these knowledge to real world applications, that was what I wanted to focus on more.
