About

About

My name is Vincent Tang. By day I do marketing, IT, and sales for a small company specializing in industrial equipment. By night I spend my time doing web development and studying computer science.

I use this website to share things I learn. These topics are the following:

  • How I set up [______] software to GTD (Get Things Done)
  • Reflecting on things learned from work/side projects
  • Documentaries / Stories

I believe it is important to blog about something. It doesn’t really matter what the topic is. Writing these posts captures a state of mind that you can later revisit. It helps cement things you’ve learned and helps you show a sense of progress.
