Sarp Erdag

Hello, I'm Sarp Erdag


I am a software developer, designer and entrepreneur from Turkey. Here's my story of the last 15 years:

2015-2019:

I co-founded and ran an app business, designing and building Typorama and Videorama for the iOS App Store.

These two apps got more than 10 million downloads worldwide, featured by Apple on the App Store various times and reviewed on several different blogs and magazines including TechCrunch, Time Magazine, The Guardian, Entrepreneur, Popular Science, AppAdvice, BeautifulPixels, CNET, Webrazzi, Hürriyet, NTV and Sözcü.

On January 2019, both apps were acquired by a US based app publishing firm through a multi million dollar deal. Through these years, I also gave talks at various events telling my story as an indie developer and on how to find success on the App Store building self funded, micro app businesses.

2012-2015:

I founded and ran a boutique mobile iOS app development shop named Apperto, building apps for clients worldwide. Worked on building m-commerce apps, small games, photo and video editors.

2002-2011:

Received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Software Engineering from the Polythecnic University of Milan. Interned, freelanced and worked for several different software companies, startups and agencies in Turkey, Italy and Switzerland. Also built a web based group buying sites aggregator named GrupGuru.

Here is a list of the events I gave talks at:

- SwiftFest 2018 - Boston, United States
- iOS Dev UK 2017 - Aberystwyth, United Kingdom
- CodeMobile 2017 - Chester, United Kingdom
- MobileDays'17 - Ankara, Turkey
- Mobos 2016 - Cluj, Romania
- Webrazzi Mobil 2016 - "Trends in Mobile Technologies" - Istanbul, Turkey
- MobileDays'15 Conference - Bilkent University Ankara, Turkey

... and some of the podcasts I was hosted at,

- Episode 413 of The App Guy Podcast
- Episode 40 of Ray Wood's Top Agents Playbook Podcast

But even more important than all the career stuff above, I'm a family man, father to our lovely, 4 year old daughter :)
