This is a short history of my passion in computer and software and where I am now:
The first time I ever saw a computer
My family were very poor, I was 11 year old, helping my family sell newspaper and food on the street in Saigon. I never thought I would be lucky enough to play with a computer until one day, a generous stranger gave me a large amount of money so I can take this computer class with her. With such an opportunity, I took that class very seriously and my love for computer begin to grows. We were using Microsoft Windows 3.0 on an Intel 386 processor and I checked out all the software that was available during that time.
We came to America
This was the best moment in my life, at age 14, arriving in America, I knew what an opporunity I had and promised myself to become somebody. This was a dream come true and I can say so for every Vietnamese person at that time. At this time I know quite a bit about computer but my knowledge exploded when I joined the online computer community through different BBS forums. I begin to learn advance computer skills like Assembly (machine language) and debugging/cracking software, and software developement using C language.
Made my first online game
KLA-Tencor hired me for their Software Development team
Programmers were in high demand and I was pulled out of college and paid a high sallary to work as a developer for KLA-Tencor. We made defects analisys software for semiconductor manufacturing company. At the age of 20, I was traveling to France, Japan, Taiwan, all over the world to setup specialized software and configure servers for multi-billion dollar fabrication companies.
