Thank you for visiting my site. My name is Vicky Nguyen (pronounced "nuhWEN") and I was born in Hochiminh city (Saigon), Vietnam. Now I work and live in The Netherlands. I am a full stack developer, and I absolutely love what I do. I have been coding since 2008 (after graduated bachelor of Computing and Mathematics).
I used to code in ASP.NET C# with MSSQL and since 2012 I use PHP and MySQL. I love queries and database. Web security is also my concern.
Besides coding, I love cooking, baking and traveling. I travelled a lots during my student time with my own saved money. I'm obsessed with nail polish, so you will always find me having colors on my nails. My favourite colour is pink, you may know it already when visiting this page ;-). I am the founder & developer of vietforum.nl (Vietnamese) to help Vietnameses who live, study and work in The Netherlands. In 2016 I start to work as freelancer for WEBLUST.
I am a happy coder and I am proud of what I can do. I love queries!
I enjoy creating modern & powerful website. And responsive is a must.
Baking is one of my hobbies. I enjoy making cakes especially for kids

I learned that we can do anything, but we can't do everything... at least not at the same time. So think of your priorities not in terms of what activities you do, but when you do them. Timing is everything.
