Who am I?

I'm Dave Doğa Oz.

I started programming when I was 12 years old by developing apps on my custom firmware installed portable game console. By time, I improved my skills and learned Java to develop Android Applications. When i was 15 years old, I developed DO Launcher, Rotary Home Launcher(rotaryhome.com), and more than 15 apps for Android.

My most popular two apps were using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, RSS and many different social media platform APIs to combine news feed into one page.

I was a member of AIESEC on 2015-2016 which is an international non-governmental not-for-profit organization that provides young people leadership development, cross-cultural global internships, and volunteer exchange experiences across the globe. The organization focuses on empowering young people to make a positive impact on society which was a great opportunity. I strongly recommend AIESEC and many other non-profit organizations for anyone all around the world. Be part of it, be part of something good.

I'm mostly focused on non-profit community-oriented initiatives, apps, and services which are based on coding and designing. I'm polishing up my skills at college and rising up. I aspire to be a googler.

My Life Goals

There are people all around the world who are suffering both mentally and physically. My main goal in life is that to help myself first to help others with my resources. I'm doing this by improving my skills on different programming languages, frameworks, APIs to develop open source non-profit applications. While I become more skillful, I believe that I help to others. I want to contribute to this world and society to make it better than now, so that we can thrive together.

  • You can see my projects on next pages or you can just ask me (doga.ozkaraca@gmail.com)...
  • What can I do?

    Web Development

    using HTML, Javascript, CSS, PHP, composer, node.js, MVC Design Patterns, Object-Oriented Programming techniques, and LAMP or MEAN. Whatever is needed, It's fine for me. I'm willing to absorb new frameworks, coding techniques, programming languages etc. I try something new when I feel like I'm in my comfort zone while coding. It's my passion.

    Android Apps and iOS?

    Java, Android Studio. Oh good ol' Android Studio, I still remember the time when Android Developers were using Eclipse. Recently, I tried ReactNative and Nativescript just to develop apps for both Android and iOS. I'm impressed but I think They need more time.

    UX & UI

    It's not my specialty, I enjoy coding part more. Still, I like challenge A LOT and design easy-to-use user interfaces and do more research on user experience and implement required techniques as the projects required. I use sketch.

    Marketing

    Designing Logos and other required images/videos for Apps or websites as a product by using Adobe Photoshop, Premiere Pro and After Effects. Again, It's not my specialty, but I try my best to do when logos and other materials are needed since I also do marketing of my own projects.

    Database Management

    I've been using SQL for all of my projects so far (mySQL to be specific on LAMP), and I just started learning mainly MongoDB but I'm also looking for other NoSQL options, just to stay updated.
