Who are you and what is your role at Linknode?

I am Minh. My full name is Nguyen Quy Minh. And I am originally from Saigon, Vietnam.

I joined Linknode in 2013 to support geospatial applications. These include the web mapping portals used within around 200 local authority planning web sites in UK. I also works on web portal and database assess interfaces for Linknode solutions.

At Linknode we are encouraged to make the most of cutting edge technology in software development. I am interested in Microsoft technologies like MVC, WebAPI, Azure, OAuth, OWIN, OData, SignalR, Entity Framework. Other technologies that I can also use are Xamarin, Monogame, WebGL, MapGuide.

What is your favourite project at Linknode?

One of my favourite project is a R&D project 3 years ago to reconstruct any objects in 3D using Kinect camera. I was very impressed with the capability of measuring the distance from depth camera to objects as that was the first time I see and know about Kinect. And the most interesting is I can see my head in 3D.

If you could describe working at Linknode in three words, what would they be?

Flexibility, Creativity, Reliability

What do you like to do when you’re not working?

I love diving or playing football. However it is not easy to dive in UK as the weather is so cold so I normally play football with my friends instead.

If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Egg fried rice 🙂
