In September 2013, we launched the “Developers of the Future” project for the purpose of bringing together those people who felt an interest in software development in the mobile and digital world, one of the most important areas of our day. Our aim for the next 5 years is to help 50,000 mobile application developers receive technical training and develop applications, commercialize the applications so developed, and finally, grow qualified human resources for both Turkcell and our ecosystem.
 
University students, individual software developers, professional software developers working at different organizations, in other words, anyone who is currently working in application development and has goals in this area will be able to take part in the project.
 
Software economy is important to us, and we want to help Turkey get a share from this pie. With this perspective in mind and working on the question “How can we create value for the ecosystem?” we set ourselves the target of helping people, particularly young people, who are interested in mobile software achieve competency in this area. Since we know that there are young people in Turkey who enthusiastically work in this field and produce successful works, just like the rest of the world, it is a dream for us to transform these ideas and works into achievements of global scale.
 
While preparing the training documents in “Developers of the Future”, we worked under the supervision of active expert mobile application developers who were graduates of education faculties. All documents were subjected to a scrupulous production and quality control inspection. Naturally, we update the trainings continuously as technology develops, and add new content every day.
 
The program, which celebrated its second anniversary in September 2015, enjoyed massive interest. More than 46,000 people registered to become community members, benefiting from 15 million pages of content on how to code in iOS, Android, Windows Phone, as well as server platforms. In the second year of the program, 12,000 online and 150 printed certificates were issued to participants who successfully took the “Mobile Application Development Sufficiency Exam” given by Turkcell
 
Thanks to the “Developers of the Future” project, trainees will have the opportunity to develop applications and software with Android, iOS and Windows Phone. This project differs from the similar projects around the world in having the most commonly used mobile operating systems of the market under a single initiative.
 
To further encourage the software developers who are successful in the project, leading figures from the sector provide mentorship to them. Also, developers signing up to the project portal will be able to contact their project mentors and receive their feedback. Mentors will not only work in a closer relationship with the developers but they will also guide them during actual events or organizations. The feedback of participants regarding the project will ensure that the “Developers of the Future” ecosystem constantly develops and remains up-to-date.
 
To the participants who successfully complete the entire training and develop software programs, we plan to offer internship and employment opportunities in the large ecosystem of our business partners and corporate customers. Software developers and entrepreneurs who want to develop a business partnership with us in the individual or corporate field will have the opportunity to benefit from the various support mechanisms of Turkcell thanks to the Turkcell Partnership interaction.
 
“Developers of the Future” is open to anyone who wants to be a part of the mobile software ecosystem. Even developers who are yet at the beginner's level can be involved in the project. Many national events were organized to interact with developers and interested people as part of the project, which offers training, development and mentorship opportunities.
