Although I am new to web design and front-end development, I wanted to take this great hackathon opportunity. Actually, I'm a civil engineering student, but I've loved computers since I was a kid.

When I first met C and C ++ languages ​​and for the first time in the command window, "Hello World!" When I wrote it was like a spell. Then I started making programs for simple paragraphs, calculators, and simple math equations. When I made my first game of tetris and snake, I was incredibly excited. I was sure I could achieve this. Then I started to research and download the game engines and play around a bit. After Unity2d projects, I turned to 3d projects. After I managed to make platform games that would be considered simple again, I realized that actually it is very important to do this job than graphic design. I also started studying graphic design as a hobby.

And while researching all these, I realized that great projects can be done with Javascript and CSS3. I opened a site with WordPress admin panel to share all this with people. Believe me, I don't want to deal with PHP again. Because PHP and MySQL was a very different issue for me. It was taking too long to solve the problems I encountered. But I was happy with this situation because I realized later that these problems actually caused me to learn. I had to get out of the dark lands of WordPress.

While researching website designs, I met freecodecamp and finished all stages. This was incredibly enjoyable. And then I met "". This was a great place because everyone was helping each other. Right here as I was just joining you, I saw the hackathon announcement. I thought why not. And I made my application. Here is my latest site!

I am still making various arrangements. I will be releasing the latest version soon and I am very excited about it. I will be waiting for your comments. Good luck everyone!!!
