Who Am I?

My name Is Toprak Koς. I am a passionate Full-Stack (mostly front-end) developer, and I started coding at an early age. I have worked at some of Turkey's best known startups. I am passionate about technology as a whole, not simply a specific framework or language. I love discovering new concepts and techniques. Quality is extremely important to me and I always make sure to do my best and generate the finest product I can.
