Aydin Akcasu

Aydin has been working in the software industry for over 30 years, (working early on with punch cards and dinosaurs :).

He has worked at many companies on many, many different types of projects and frameworks. During this time, he has found it interesting to see methodologies, frameworks, and designs come and go. There have been many “New Shiny toys” that “You have to learn!” in the software industry, some of which have or haven’t stood the test of time.

Aydin has stayed afloat (and relevant), by learning simple generic skills that are applicable to any software language or environment. Aydin has been writing software for close to 30 years. He has provided solutions using technologies such as Java, JavaScript, ASP, Visual Basic, VB.Net, C#.Net, ASP.Net, Flash, GPU, Angular.... Aydin enjoys learning-from and teaching people of all ages. He has given presentations and classes in the past to local groups (as well as in India) in topics such as

"KPL-Kids Programming Language",

‘Help, I need to learn Javascript’,

‘Cover you ASP’,

‘VB- What is it good for?’, ‘

‘Google Maps API-Wheres’Waldo?’,

"Cross-Platform Mobile Development",
