Ozgur Akan

Ozgur Akan, the founder of jEopardy Project, has been working on open source software and networking since 1996. Since learning more about the GNU project the will of doing something useful for people has never left him.

Born in Istanbul, it was early in his first year of university that he first meet linux and GNU. Being one of the founders of the Turkey PHP Group, he wrote several articles in monthly magazines. Getting deeper into networking and linux he finally started to work on the linux kernel which inspired him to create a tool based on netfilter.
