For personal correspondence, I prefer email:
If asking about UNetbootin, please report an issue on Github, and consider making a donation.
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 SUB外网加速器 I prefer PyTorch.
For frontend development I have the most experience with Polymer, though I also enjoy using React.
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˧˧)
