OpenTR provides open source strategy and guidance for organizations and individuals in Turkey.

As OpenTR, we believe in the power of open source and related initiatives to support development in Turkey, increase collaboration, and create positive social impact.

To harness this power, we provide free and independent documents, data, guidance, and strategies for organizations and individuals.

While we collaborate with international communities, OpenTR's audience is individuals and organizations in Turkey. We provide our content in Turkish at this moment.
