Hello,

I'm Emre Asan

As a Software Test Engineer with significant full-time experience, I have actively contributed to the Network Performance Monitoring project. While working on this project, I gained significant knowledge about 5G SA Core in the research I have done and continue to do.

In addition to my core expertise, I am proficient in a variety of DevOps tools, such as Kubernetes and Jenkins. Furthermore, I have acquired solid skills in Google Cloud as part of these side competencies and certified as an Associate Cloud Engineer from Google. This dual proficiency enables me to seamlessly collaborate with DevOps teams, contributing to the integration of testing processes within dynamic deployment environments. My commitment to mastering diverse technologies underscores my dedication to delivering high quality and innovative solutions.

Apart from these, I gained intercultural working experience thanks to the EU funded projects I participated in when I was an undergraduate student. Also, completed my undergraduate program, MIS, as the top student of the department.

SOME OF WORK

European Voluntary Service in Romania

(This is an old post dated July 23, 2019)

I am Emre from Turkey and I have been volunteering for 5 weeks in Baia Mare. My project’s name is “Young Steps in Europe”.

I learned so many things about life in this 5 weeks. I really feel like I grew up and my skills are improved. Because of these things, I suggest everybody to participate an EVS project at least one time.

I have a workshop about C programming, and the lessons are given by me in Team for Youth’s office. I give the lessons to local and international volunteers. Some participants are not sure what to study at university. Because of this, one of my aims is to improve their interest about programming. I think maybe they can understand that they could be successful if they study computer science or management information systems, like me. Generally people don’t believe in their skills in programming, but they do not even try. This is why I am trying to do this.

By the way, this month I started to go Romani Center and there are children from different age groups. The center is very nice so it is easy to make activities there. Except this activity, my favorite activity was Luchian but holiday started for that center, so I could not join the activities there anymore. I was very happy while I was playing with kids there and it was my first experience to meet kids with down syndrome. They are very lovely and I wish I will be able to spend time in a center like this one again in the future.

Now, I am starting to think about what I will do in Turkey when I go back there, because my project is going to be ending in 2 weeks. I have weird emotions about that because I have already adapted to live in Baia Mare, so I think my next mission will be adapt to live in a big city again, Ankara.

"Emre is our Turkish volunteer in the project ”Young Steps in Europe” coordinated by Bridge of Culture Training and Youth Association, and hosted in Team for Youth Association."
