Under the Desk of… a Software Engineer

Stylight - Under the Desk - Software Engineer

If you could only eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
İmam Bayıldı which is whole eggplant stuffed with onion, garlic and tomatoes, and simmered in olive oil. Funnily, it literally means “The imam fainted”. It is said that an imam (Muslim priest) swooned with pleasure on tasting the dish. I can’t blame him. It is something I eat since childhood and I love it!
Movie time. What’s your all time favourite film?
12 Angry Men.
Any particular characters from that film that you admire?
Juror 8 (played by Henry Fonda) is my favourite character in that film. He goes great lengths to convince other 11 people in the room that he has reasonable doubts about the case where they are convinced they figured all out.
If you had to describe your job in a tweet, what would you say? (Remember that a tweet is just 140 characters so keep it brief!)
