Updated LinkedIn: https://vn.linkedin.com/in/chienvh

I am currently working as the position of project manager for a long time. Had to take care a lot of projects at the same times, so I don't have many free times in a day for contributing the articles, tips/tricks on codeproject.
While I was at the previous company sometimes I participated in training courses for new employees, so I have good teaching skills and ability to convey information to others. Meaning in each my post I will try to explain more detail as possible for the junior devs are able to implement/understand what's I have done.

Also, would like to share my responsibilities for current position:

• Coordinate internal resources and third parties/vendors for the flawless execution of projects
• Ensure that all projects are delivered on-time, within scope and within budget
• Assist in the definition of project scope and objectives, involving all relevant stakeholders and ensuring technical feasibility
• Ensure resource availability and allocation
• Develop a detailed project plan to monitor and track progress
• Report and escalate to management as needed
• Perform risk management to minimize project risks
• Establish and maintain relationships with third parties/vendors
• Create and maintain comprehensive project documentation
• Support team members to solve technical issues

Opening and looking forward to finding suitable jobs.

France France
A hobbyist begin-again-er!

Spent a few years longer ago than I care to remember with BBC Basic, a couple of years with Delphi about 10-15 years ago with a smattering af MS Access applications along the way. Dropped out of it completely except for the occasional Excel macro.

Finally picked up the baton again with VB.Net in VS2010 and now VS 2012and have been playing around quite a bit with a few odds and sodds, learning much as I go - and long may it continue.

I don't work even close to the IT industry and probably never will, but I do enjoy it as a hobby.
