                I've been lucky enough to work with Serkan over the last 2 years at Redbeacon/Techshed. Serkan is, by far, one of the most accomplished and talented people I've ever had the pleasure of working with. His knowledge of javaScript, front end architecture, and web technology is unparalleled and I find myself continually impressed with what he "brings to the table" each week. The sheer amount of information he's passed on to me during my time in the job also demonstrates his talent as a mentor and a trainer. I am a better engineer from my time working with Serkan. One of the attributes I personally love, is his ability to crank out solid, dependable, front end structures, and also their counterpoint: the application of quick, dirty, fixes - that we all hate doing, but acknowledge are necessary from time to time when we're up against deadlines. Ultimately, when you couple his skill set with this friendly and outgoing personality, you really have someone who can make an impact on any team, regardless of field or project. Get this guy onboard, he'll be one of the best hires you've ever made.

                I had the pleasure of working with Serkan on JotForm. We were both working on rewriting JotForm from scratch and I feel his contributions have greatly aided the success JotForm enjoys today. He is a great problem solver; able to architect solutions and design intuitive interfaces. He doesn't end there and he relentlessly fine-tunes these ideas as feedback comes from the users and others. He can clearly communicate with non-technical people as well as engineers. You can ask any new web technology and you bet he has heard and/or experimented with it. Kudos for working hard in making JotForm what it is today.
