Software Developer / Computer Science Student

Currently seeking Summer/Winter 2022 Internship in software field

> Hello world, this is Duc

That was my very first "Hello, world" program I wrote, all the way back when I was in primary school and learning Pascal. It was intimidating for a 9 years old boy to write something and make it work on a black and white computer screen, but it ignited my fascination for programming and computer. Since then, a lot of things have changed, but my passion for programming never does. I still see the terminal screen as a canvas for me to get creative and the keyboard is a brush to make extraordinary things, up to this day.

After completing my high school degree in Hanoi, I moved to Montreal, Canada in 2017 to pursue a bachelor's degree in Computer Science at Concordia University. It was here that I learn the fundamentals of this field and get to do more of the things I love.

I love watching Netflix 🍿 , reading books 📕 , travelling 🚗 , drinking boba 🥤 , and petting dogs 🐶.

I am always looking for a team where I can collaborate and deliver high-quality works. If I sound like a good fit for your team, hit me up!
