Istanbul Branch

Establishment and Purpose

The Turkish Informatics Association (TBD), which was founded in 1971 almost immediately after Turkey's introduction to informatics by a semi-academic community, which we can call informatics professionals today, with a great vision of the future, has now turned into a "Civil Society" pioneering movement that tries to spread the "Informatics Culture" with its members from all layers of society.

Üye sayısı bugün 12.000’i aşmıştır. Yedi şubesi, 13 il temsilciliği ve Üniversitelerdeki TBD-Genç örgütlenmesiyle TBD, bilişim sektörünün gelişmesine önemli katkılar vermeye devam etmektedir.

The reports, recommendations and independent discourse produced by the Informatics Association of Turkey through its structure based on individual participation and volunteerism are now taken into consideration by all decision-makers and all segments of society.

The most important factor in this success is the interest, trust, support and contribution that our members have shown to our association for years under all circumstances.

In order to contribute to the formation of national consciousness towards becoming an informatics society, to the determination of national informatics policies, and to the clarification of our professional solidarity and organized attitude, we invite everyone who is interested in software, informatics, computers and whose path passes through information to become a member of our association.

TBD established the Istanbul branch in order to reach out more to Istanbul, which has a high sectoral weight, through the BIM Executives Club (BIMKULÜP). TBD Istanbul branch was established in 1995. In addition, other branches and institutional representative offices were established in order to expand the organization and to be closer to our members.

Everyone who becomes a member of our association will have the opportunity to both closely monitor and influence developments in the sector through TBD relations.
