Hello, I’m Batuhan Özgür. I’m a Ruby on Rails developer travelling around the Asia. For the next month I'll be in Goa, India.


Even though I'm into programming since I was 15, I didn't really got professional about programming because I was mainly playing drums with my band. When I was 23, I've decided switch back to programming, my ex lover. I knew fundamental concepts, algorithms, computers but I was fairly outdated so instead of jumping to web development ocean, I decided to build myself from ground up starting with basics. Spending great amount of time learning 14 hours a day for almost a year, luckily gave me a chance to work for some projects and I've become professional.

I'm always looking ahead to follow best practices, TDD, Agile and standards that makes sense.


For some years, I played drums with a band which we started with my cousins back in teenager years called You May Kiss the Bride, we've released some EP's and had a chance to tour to Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and some cities in Turkey.

We've started covering A7x, Lamb of God, Opeth and so on. We ended up making our own songs then things escalated.

I love travelling ever since my childhood. My will to go, explore, experience mostly made me who I am. I've started my this travel at October from Nepal. After spending 2,5 month there, I've come to India. Now probably I'll be in India until mid-March and then who knows?
