My name is John (Can) Ozbay, and I’m a Music & Technology Master’s student. You may see my name written like : “Can”. It’s pronounced : “John”. This is my first spring in CMU, so don’t ask me for directions. My goal is to create different platforms and interfaces for artists and musicians. Here are just three of my projects.

An HTML5-based iPad Magazine Publishing Platform for designers who hate programming
Last year, me and my visual designer friend, started working on an iPad Music Magazine project. We didn’t want to use Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite, and pay hundreds of dollars to a 3rd party company just to publish it. While we were working on the magazine, I noticed that he hated it when I spoke computer language/code, and I realized what exactly makes Adobe so successful in their business. Visual designers don’t like coding. So I decided to design my own publishing platform. After spending two weeks with my visual designer friend, I created a new platform for digital publishing. It’s not the first, nor the best. However I created a platform for my friend, and for visual designers like him.
Well, those are just three projects. For more, check out my website.
