Viet is L-Tron’s Senior Platform Developer, aka Creative Extraordinaire. When he’s not developing software or our website, you can find Viet creating something on his 3D printer or spending time with his daughter.
Fun fact, Viet is the development brains & the heart and soul behind OSCR360, which was actually named after Viet’s dog, Oscar.
