Aydın starts the conversation by telling how he was introduced to the software industry after graduating from the university in 2008.

Then he mentions his first investment: buying a website for flash-based browser games. Then he thinks about developing their flash-based games instead of publishing games made by third parties on their website. This led him to learn game development software which he defines as a stepping stone in his career.

Later, with the advancement of smart mobile devices, he notices an increase in movement in the mobile game industry. Being previously familiar with game development software Hüseyin Aydın teaches himself Unity. He comments that his ability to self-teach software is due to his curiosity about the games’ technical details.
