For personal correspondence, I prefer email:
Can I have the source code for one of your projects?
Check my GitHub account.
What programming languages and libraries do you use and recommend?
For data science I prefer using Python in a Jupyter notebook, using rpy2 to invoke R libraries.
For machine learning I prefer PyTorch.
For frontend development I am experienced with React, Polymer, and AngularJS.
For mobile development I've had good experiences with NativeScript and React Native.
What natural languages do you know?
I'm fluent in English and Standard Chinese (Mandarin). I also know Hungarian by virtue of having spent my childhood in Hungary, and Vietnamese from speaking it with my family. I have also studied Spanish and Japanese, and can still read and understand them but haven't spoken them in a while.
How do I pronounce your name?
Kovács Géza (IPA: kovaːt͡ʃ ɡeːzɒ) The "e" sound in Geza is the same as in "hey". The "cs" in Kovacs is pronounced "ch", not "ks". Hungarian puts the surname first.
I also use my Vietnamese name, Minh Trung (漢字: 明忠) (IPA: miŋ˧˧ ṯɕʊwŋ˧˧)
