Hi, I’m Volkan Özçelik I help developers out and lift them up


About Me

I’m a developer, speaker, streamer, and creator.

I like tinkering with systems, and I’m not afraid to break stuff.

Currently, I’m a Technical Lead at Cisco, improving performance across the fabric.

As an engineer, I solve problems: The context, the origin, or the nature of the problems are orthogonal to the approaches I take in solving them.

I’m a big believer in asking questions.

It’s the curiosity that matters.

Ideas matter.

Since 2003, I have been all over the stack, as far as stack goes. I’ve created mobile, web, and desktop apps, played with SQL/NoSQL/GraphQL data stores, and more.

I’ve automated the deployment of microservices, played with serverless, Kubernetes, and service meshes. I’ve used real-time databases, streams, WebSockets, protocol buffers, lambda functions, and message queues. I’ve crafted solutions to improve the scalability and performance of distributed systems.

I’m pretty sure there’s much more to add to the list that I don’t remember right now.

Yet, that’s me in a nutshell: I’m a pragmatist nerd who likes to get $#!% done.
