Arzu O.

Lead Developer/Owner

I’m not just a developer, I’m a problem-solver at heart. From my early days hacking away at code as an application programmer at the University of Berkeley, to building impactful tools like FOSSmap and Icheck, my journey has been driven by a desire to use technology to bridge gaps and make a difference.

FOSSmap and Icheck might sound like just another educational platform and assessment tool, but they’re more than that. They’re about empowering science teachers and students, creating an engaging learning environment, and ultimately fostering a generation of critical thinkers. This belief in the power of technology for good extends to all my projects, from streamlining workflows at Expensify to combating fraud at Kappa Image.

But building isn’t enough. I’m a tinkerer, a tech enthusiast who thrives on the ever-changing landscape of web development. The thrill of learning and adapting keeps me fueled. This dedication to growth ensures I’m always delivering cutting-edge solutions that stay ahead of the curve.

But technology isn’t just about lines of code; it’s about the human connection. My ability to communicate effectively, manage time like a pro, and pay meticulous attention to detail ensures every project gets the care it deserves. And when I’m not glued to a screen, you’ll find me indulging in the timeless joy of books and blogs, unleashing my competitive spirit on the tennis court, strategizing over a game of bridge, or catching the wind and chasing waves on the open water.

So, what’s Halloc all about? It’s about blending passion with purpose. It’s about harnessing the power of technology to create solutions that not only work, but also resonate. It’s about building bridges, one line of code and one insightful conversation at a time.
