Welcome to Emre ┼×ahin's digital garden. ­č¬┤

It's mostly (in)tended for my future self as a technical logbook.

Continuous Developer

Everyone knows software development never finishes. You have to keep up, learn new technologies and fix (or replace) the bugs. I'm developing software since 1996 or its whereabouts. These are mostly tidbits and development journals.

Perpetual Learner

Masochistic Minimalist

  • Using cat for writing: I was using a simple script based on cat to write notes and posts. It was an experiment to keep myself to think more about content and less about minor errors. I think I lost that kind of minimalist enthusiasm and switching to Neovim from Emacs helped a bit too.
  • Using todo.txt for recurring tasks: I gave up using todo.txt after the list grown into something not managable. These days I use Trello to forget the tasks.


  • Burnouts: I read a lot about it but I think I never lived it. This is mostly because I don't have to do jobs that I don't like for the long run.
  • Energy for taking risks: How to make people to work on long term goals?


Lazy Scripter

Software Architect


These are mostly about my Ph.D. work in building OCR for Ottoman Turkish. They are dated. I may return to work on this some time in the future as the problem seems still open.
