It looks like it became a tradition to write year recap posts but I don’t have much interesting things to share.

  • I’m happy because I’ve kept contributing to BuddyPress and I still do.
  • I’m happy because my family and I were in good health in a year and we still are. I hope everyone gets to feeling better soon!
  • I’m happy because I’m still alive.


Hello hello 👋,

First of all, I’m happy to share that my family and I are healthy even if It’s been a tough year for humanity. I hope everyone gets to feeling better soon!

Whenever I remembered something and thought I did it this year, it was last year. It was weird.

I spent my all-time at home for eight months (like everyone does) but let’s try to make a list:


  • have moved house
  • have worked from home
  • switched to Emacs (I’ve never looked back, this is the best decision I’ve made this year)
  • have started to spend more hours working on system administration (I feel like a full stack developer more than ever) 
  • have made six contributions to BuddyPress (BuddyPress team added my name to the noteworthy contributors’ list 🎉)
  • have played football manager for more than 100 hours like last year (this game is my most favorite one)



  • have joined nefisyemektarifleri.com as a software developer
  • developed 5 WordPress plugins
  • have made my first contribution to WordPress Core
  • published my first plugin on Plugins Directory (It was a challenge plugin for a job interview so It is not a big deal but I’ve learned the process of publishing plugins. Btw I got the job 🙂 )
  • completed 2 Laravel and 2 front end projects
  • bought a ThinkPad and started using Arch Linux with i3 window manager (to be honest I miss retina display)
  • moved my blog to DO
  • started using ProtonMail
  • have played football manager more than 100 hours
