Welcome to my site, dear readers! My name is Vui Nguyen (pronounced “vooey nwen”) and I am a Denver, CO native.

I’ve completed a 2 year contract position as an iOS mobile developer for the SimplyE project, the e-book reader app for the New York Public Library, and am now looking for my next new adventure!

I’m an Intel Software Innovator specializing in the Internet of Things.

Also supporting Women Who Code as a Lead for my local Colorado chapter and the Mobile Track community.

My areas of expertise include iOS mobile development in Objective-C and Swift, cross-platform mobile development in Titanium* for Android and iOS, and full-stack development in JavaScript and Node. I was the CTO of infoGuide Apps where we built mobile field guide apps for classic cars, and I’m (still) an avid fisherwoman 🙂 . **

Prior to my current adventures, I have been a software developer with over 15 years of experience in Java, enterprise, web, and mobile development at large companies and as a freelance consultant.

If there’s an opportunity for us to collaborate, please drop me a line and say ‘hi’.

All the best,

Vui, aka @sunfishgurl of Sunfish Empire

* Titanium from Appcelerator is an open source platform that allows developers to create native iOS and Android applications from a single JavaScript-based SDK. This enables you to build a single application in JavaScript, which is then compiled into native code, with the same look and feel as a native application.

** A sunfish is an actual fish you can catch in Colorado, where I live. Sunfish, along with bluegills (like the one I’m holding in the picture) and others in the pan fish family, are a group of small fish that fight hard! I am small and soft-spoken, but I am strong, intelligent, a leader, and one hell of a programmer. Don’t count me out because of my size. 🙂 And why Empire in Sunfish Empire? Well, who says I can’t own an empire someday? 😛
