My name is Giang Tung Tong (in Vietnamese: Tống Tùng Giang). I am a game programmer from Hanoi, Vietnam, with four years of professional game programming experience, ranging from story-based FPS to fast-paced online shooter and idle RPG. I consider myself a combination of a passionate and disciplined attitude and a clever brain. My solutions are created by smartly combining my knowledge in computer science and mathematics.
