Christmas is always a time for Party and making good excuses to meet new and old friends!
Here to say hi to all new friends I have met today, and great to meet my dear old friends, quite a lot of you have changed your job and environment, but still, the I.T. world is so small that we could always meet each other… even I met an old schoolmate that we have not met each other for over 10 years!
Congratulations to all who has got a prize from the lucky draw! The Slingbox, Kinect, BlackBerry 9860… Wow! Will I be the lucky one next year? =)
It was our honor for our founder, Mr. Chris Chan to be invited as one of speakers at the Convocation Talk – Career Navigator for the City University. Chris were graduated in the City University years ago and started his own company, IGPSD. We shared our experience on company start-up.
We had a discuss section together with Ms Dilys Chau from Ernest & Young and Dr. Ricky Szeto Wing-Fu who is very well-known in his business, we learned a lot from Ricky on his attitude and his foresight.
Chris has also given guidelines and suggestions to some of the participated City University graduates, wish you all have a prosperous future!
We have expanded our office to San Po Kong in the convenience of our clients to meet us.
Our new office is now located at Unit 817, 8/F, New Tech Plaza, 34 Tai Yau Street, San Po Kong, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
New colleagues will be joining us soon and we aim to provide better services in the near future!
We have moved our office to Kowloon Bay, see how nice this is?
We have partnered with quite a few new groups and companies and have some new plans coming up. Stay tuned!
We are going to expand! We started our company with our office located in Kwun Tong for more than 2 years and today it is the time for us to move on. We had great memories here with all our colleagues and we have new plans coming up.
Looking back to the opening on the first day, we had great laugh with our friends. Thank you both Chris Chan, Dennis, Brian and others for all your support during the years!
It is a great honor for us to working with the British Council on education applications for iPhone and Android. We are also planning to work on the Samsung Bada and Nokia Symbian, etc. platforms in the near future to help more people learning English anytime simply using their phones.
This is the first application released that is written by us for the British council. Here are the app descriptions and few screenshots below:
LearnEnglish Elementary Podcasts App is a series of English learning podcasts for you to directly download and enjoy on your iPhone or iPod Touch or your Android™ Smartphone. You also have the option to stream. Each show, with the dynamic duo of Tess and Ravi, is 20 minutes long and comes with questions aimed at Elementary learners of English, which you can try and answer while listening to the podcast. The tapescript also moves in time with the audio to aid listening. This mode is not available when in live streaming mode. You can also access Tess and Ravi’s Twitter and Facebook pages directly from the application enabling you to directly ask them questions about the show or anything to do with studying English. There are 13 podcasts to date, more to follow, practice activities, tapescript for supported learning and connect with Tess and Ravi via Facebook or Twitter.
We are so glad that have received great feedbacks from users all around the world and get on the top charts in few countries. We hope the app can help people knowing that learning english is just as easy as this is. Enjoy!
This year we have worked with a group of Computer Science students from The Hong Kong University of Science & Technology on their Final Year Projects, proving support on their GPS Locations project using the Arduino.
Students have customized the hardware and developed web and mobile platforms for GPS trackings on vehicles. We have even drove them around with our car to test their system and worked together to fine tune the data.
Today we have attended their Final Year Presentation at the HKUST. One of the outstanding student, Morrison was even been hired by us as a programmer.
We had great fun at the IT Reporter’s Spring Dinner 2010 tonight at the City University. Thank you very much again to Francis from the HKITF for inviting us to come. We knew a lot of new friends and partners during the event and shared a lot on technical stuff and trends on internet.
So many gifts sponsored by large brands, there were Samsung notebooks, PCCW free unlimited 3G Data plans, Pocket Wifi, Mobile devices, etc. I am the lucky one who got the limited gifts from the Harbour City! Yay!
We had very good food too! Glad to know all guys from the same table who shared so many funny things tonight!
