About

My name is Erkin Batu Altunbaş (/'eɾcin 'batu al'tunbaʃ/) and I'm a tenured senior professional undergraduate student of computer engineering in Turkey. And this is my web page.

My CV and my language passport.

I dabble in programming and computer science. I'm particularly interested in programming language theory and systems programming, and their subfields, such as compiler design, operating system development, virtualisation, filesystem design and such. I'm also interested retrocomputing and constrained computing aesthetics.

I'm very fond of functional, expressive and orthogonal languages, which is why Scheme/Racket is my go-to language. In addition, I use Clojure and I'm learning OCaml and Elixir lately.

I've been using GNU/Linux exclusively since 2009 (in fact, the Arch Linux setup on my desktop dates back to 2011). You can view some of my system configuration here.

You can check my social/professional profiles under the contact page.

This page was entirely written by hand in Emacs! I value accessibility a lot, so if my page doesn't render well on your end, please let me know. You can view the old website here.
