About me

I am Can Karka and

Programming has always been my greatest passion. I started programming at the age of 12 and now I speak a variety of programming languages (including: Java, PHP, C, C++, C#, Assembly, Javascript, Python, Typescript, Lua, Julia and Bash). In the area of programming, it has become clear to me over time that graphics programming has become one of my favorites, so I am currently programming my own game engine in C++, which will be available on all platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac, PS4, PS5, XBox). For more information about the engine you can view the engine: HighLo-Engine.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me immediately and have a chat with me. I am always open to new challenges and opportunities.
