Hi, I'm Ebru.

Founder at Noe Crafts, backpacker and lover of nature 🍃

I have always been so curious about the whole software development cycle, from just an idea to the journey of bringing it to life. Therefore I enjoy spending my time improving myself in full stack development.

🌄 Personal

"It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive." – Oriah Mountain Dreamer
