Experiences

  • Project Manager
    January 2014 – June 2014
    TurkishForAll Software
    Android Application
    turkishforall.com
    TurkishForAll is a project started by 4 students of the University of Sakarya, Turkey, namely; Irshaad ABDOOL, Arnaud NDAYISENGA, Sarah HALOUI and Faguimba KANOUTE.
    They are from Mauritius, Burundi, Morocco and Mali respectively. At the time of writing the software, the students were studying at the TÖMER; a facility whereby the Turkish language is taught to foreigners.
    The aim of the software is to ease the learning curves of newcomers who obviously know anything about the language and as a guide for the students during the course of learning that new language. The software is also expected to ease the teaching of the language as a supplement to the textbooks already in use in the Turkish Learning Centers.
    The software is available in 3 languages namely; English, French and Arabic. The team welcomes contributions from other foreign language speakers to be able to help more and more students from around the world to learn the language.

As the Project Manager of the team, I was responsible of choosing the framework, develop the core of the app for the team to build up on that and add contents, design and implement advertising strategies and responsible of the Web part of the project.
