Jerome was Art director for Ankama video games productions for 14 years. Jutta, a top professional in hospitality management in Vietnam.

Pascal, who lives back in Vietnam since 1989, founded insuranceinAsia.com catering to expatriates & local families for their protection needs through Asia.
Together, we created this game-coding camp because we love our teenagers.
I am an accomplished Art & Graphics Designer, who taught art at Sup Infocom, Pôle 3D and worked for 10 years as General Manager and Art Director at Ankama Products video games (Dofus, Krosmater, Wakfu). Nowadays I live in Saigon where I create art and deco in my studio and also teach art to children at various international schools. I am happy to be the Art Director and co-founder of JuniorDevCamp. Take note of this: "Boardgame mechanics are the basis and corner stone for the development of your future video game
I am a professional Game Designer, who graduated in 2005 from the Institute of Digital Arts in Paris. In 2006, I moved to Vietnam and participated in the first stages of the Game Development Industry by companies such as FPT Technological Department and Vinagame. Two years later, in 2008, I founded the Vietnamese chapter of the International Game Developers Association and my own company, Phuong Hoang Enix. In 2011, I moved to Dalat city with my family to enjoy a better quality of life (clean air, fresh fruits and vegetables, less stress, beautiful landscapes...). I've taught video games development at Yersin and Dalat Universities and am happy to be a co-founder of JuniorDevCamp.
My kids are gamers, especially my son. I tried everything to get them out into nature, pushed them to do sports, to connect more with friends, to have fun away from a screen… It’s so damn hard! Loving my teens and wanting to give them a chance to do what they love, I founded JuniorDevCamp and designed it to give both, parents and kids, opportunities, pleasure and satisfaction. I do hope this initiative will transform into an NGO ‘Save our screenagers
Pascal Ho Ba DamFounder
Known in Vietnam as a hospitality expert - mainly through my resort, Coco Beach Resort, which was built and managed together with my husband from 1994 until 2018. I am now the owner of a consulting firm (CHIConsultant) specialising in quality and operations management for hotels, restaurants and events. What few people know is that I am also a gamer and computer freak and very interested in anything related to the digital world. The idea to combine the learning of a new skill in technology with activities and discovery in a great destination full of nature is brilliant and I just wish my kids would still be here to join!
