Blog It Forward – Tahir OZ


I was BIFed by Abdulbasit Gulsen , special thanks to him for giving me opportunity to be a part of BIFChain We work together he is my colleague and my team manager in Turkey.

When i was first meet with sdn i was only thought this is a place which only you can find answers of sap products. But then i have seen the contributions of people, blogs, about scn part, cafee corner etc. made me realize its more than that. This is the place that you can improve yourself, find anwers, meeting with new people. Its the combination of social and bussiness life for me. Then i felt ohh here is the right place for me ๐Ÿ™‚

About me,

I am a SAP Techology consultant in Turkey. I like being busy with new technologies and innovations on SAP. Currently spending time on SAP for Mobile, SAPUI5 Developer Center, SAP Gateway Forum. Beside all i like to spend time on About SCN forum, enjoy to read about community members BIFs and  Laure Cetin MoM interviews.


Preparing for presentation in SAP Forum behind scenes ๐Ÿ™‚

Home town(s)


I was born in Mardin, which place in southeastern Turkey. it is known for the Artuqid architecture of its old city, and for its strategic location on a rocky hill near the Tigris River that rises steeply over the flat plains.



Mardin has often been considered an open air museum due to its historical architecture.

I spent first 17 years of my life. Its small city and various cultures live together. Since it has people from different culture so many have their own language. Beside my native language Turkish, i also speak Arabic that comes from my city ๐Ÿ™‚

Istanbul



I moved to Istanbul, which is the largest city in Turkey, to study Computer Engineering in Istanbul University. I still live here more than 7 years.


The Bosphorus, which connects the Sea of Marmara to the Black Sea.

Istanbul has very bad traffic jam. You could of reach a place a cuople hours late than normal time. But once you spend some time here i think you never want to leave ๐Ÿ™‚



A winter day.

What do you most enjoy on SCN?

I like the contribution of members,  when a new forum raises about new product in a short time blogs,discussions and everthing that you need is there. Thats really awesome.


What was your dream job as a kid?

I wanted to be a pilot ๐Ÿ™‚ I attent to air force military school then left for some reason.

      Hi Tahir,

      Welcome to the #BIF family!  And lucky you, knowing Abdulbasit and working with him!

      I love my job, but if I won the lottery, I am not sure I would keep working - at least not full time.  If I only worked part-time, I could learn (re-learn, actually) how to ride motorcycles.

      Then we could race ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Cheers,
      Sue

      Thank you Midhun VP. Mardin is very old city founded 1925 BC. Builded with only rocks. Thats why its called rocky hill and its the third open air museum city in the world. Any person once get a chance to travel i suggest to visit there.

      Cheers.

      Thanks Tahir for great #BIF blog. It was great to see the the photos of Mardin where my Mother and Father are born but I've never had a time to visit.

      I'm happy to see your contributions on SCN especially on Mobile space. I'm pretty sure that you will continue your contributions in 2014 not only on SCN but also on our offline events.


      Here's another challenge for you to try: We have an upcoming Inside Track event in Istanbul around March or April. You can start creating a wiki page and start initial preparations. We'll then discuss the possible dates and locations with our Inside Track volunteers; Ibrahim Gunduz, Dilek Adak and others who joined us in previous events.


      Cheers,

      Abdul.

      Thank you for your comment Abdulbasit Gulsen. I will check my family tree we could be relative :-).

      I'll definetly be glad to organize the SAP Inside Track in Istanbul. Since last year, SAP has new technologies in different areas to present. Especially Mobile area ๐Ÿ™‚ I think that will be very efficent event for all participants.

      I never been there ๐Ÿ™ but I've a friend who lives near the Galata tower.

      My mother, with my syster, was there this year, she was shocked by the traffic because she saw Istanbul for the last time in 1954 and this obviously has changed a lot.

      1954 very long time ago, now population reached almost 20 million. From Europe side to Asia two bridges and now building third one beside it one subway passing through under sea. Still not enough you cannot get places to sit. But after all difficult conditions still cannot give up from this city ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Tahir,

      I am happy to know that you are good bike rider. I use watch car race and bike race in media. I love to drive car very much and I am very afraid to ride bike. You have guts to ride a bike very speed I think so! ๐Ÿ™‚ I always think bike riding is little risk comparing to car driving. Bike riding is interesting to watch. Thanks for sharing about your lovely experience and about SAP. Nice blog. Keep up the good work!

      Advanced wishes for New Year 2014 ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you Suseelan Hari for your good wishes and comments. Yes, bike riding is too risky if you ride very speed. If you have this hobby its very enjoyable when you get 250 km/h speedy on it ๐Ÿ™‚ . You could of see the road like thin line on that speed, full of adrenalin ๐Ÿ™‚ .

      Thank you also sharing your experince about SAP.
